6 x 25 minute episodes

Young Scottish lad Alasdair Cameron (Mark Rogers) has lived in London with his mother for many years following the death of his father. During the school holidays, he returns to Skye to claim his inheritance – a small croft and a cottage owned by his father.

During the journey north, Alasdair is handed a desperate message from a man later found dead. It says “Hunt at the Hill of the Red Fox D15”.

Mysterious happenings on the island – most of which involve the sinister Murdo Beaton (Donald Douglas) – make little sense either.

Alasdair soon discovers that atomic scientists are disappearing and conspiracy and espionage has followed him to Skye. In a relatively short period of time, he adapts to a radically different way of life while his exposure to danger opens his eyes to life’s complexities.
