Their new 'relatives' turn out to be a little more authentically Scottish than they bargained for.

A QUIRKY CALEDONIAN CAPER - from the bestselling author of Snowball Oranges... Lord Strathsporran, the chinless-wonder laird of a Highland estate, plays host to a motley mix of international house guests who are paying sweetly to join him on a grouse-shoot. Fortune favours the devious when the seriously skint laird and two of his visitors juggle their disparate skills to pull off what promises to be an extremely lucrative scam. But lucrative for whom? Chicanery stalks the turrets of Strathsporran Castle. But who's conning who? An already complicated scenario is compounded by furtive flirtations crossing social barriers more eagerly than a prudent grouse would wing it off the moor at dawn on the Glorious Twelfth. And there's even a sighting of at least one Loch Ness Monster when the tangled threads of this offbeat drama finally unravel.
