About this deal

The hard and stubborn Stella proves difficult to handle, though she has her eye on Archie, now unattached again, as Katrina has taken up the offer of a career in national politics following her success on the local Council. The engagement causes friction between Archie and Hector, who disapproves of the match because he fears Lexie may feel trapped on the estate and leave Archie — as Molly once left him. Archie's older sister Lizzie turns up with her boyfriend, Gerald, and a group of massage therapists intent on turning Glenbogle into a healing centre. Ewan tries to win back Zoe by jumping in the loch wearing just his boxers, while a Russian millionaire, Viktor comes to Glenbogle to make an investment.

There is one strange episode in which the estate experiences a full moon or eclipse or something like that, and apparently that makes literally everyone extremely "horny. Paul becomes Laird of Glenbogle after Lexie and Archie move to New Zealand, but he falls in love with Lexie when she comes back to Glenbogle temporarily. Sadly, the long weeks filming the series in Scotland started to tell on Richard Briers and he decided to bow out of the series at the end of season three - in inimitable Hector fashion.A Greg MacDonald tries to take the Lairdship from Archie who is once again in debt, needing to pay his father's death duties. Golly meets Andrew Booth who wants to find his relatives in the Highlands, Archie and Lexie try to force Greg away. Iona is stunned when her former fiancé, Malcolm McRae, comes to Glenbogle to help save the estate's forest from a spreading fungi.

Created by Michael Chaplin, based on the Highland novels of Sir Compton MacKenzie (he of Whisky Galore), the show was never intended to be high drama and as such was ideal Sunday evening fodder for the family to curl up watching. Ewan wonders whether to stay with girlfriend, Zoe, when he takes a shine to Paul's goddaughter, Amy.Monarch of the Glen is a British drama television series produced by Ecosse Films for BBC Scotland and broadcast on BBC One for seven series between February 2000 and October 2005 with 64 episodes in total. Ewan is hired to do the food, and Lexie brings in a camera crew to film the event, but an obnoxious guest, Charles still is not happy. A mysterious World War II fighter plane is found in the loch, and Isobel must cover up her godfather who was in the plane when it crashed. When Paul Bowman-MacDonald suddenly turns up, Archie and his mother Molly are shocked and upset to learn that his father once had an affair, and that Paul was the child produced. Paul launches his new idea of turning Glenbogle into a luxury retreat when a wealthy couple come to stay at the house.

There are interviews with the cast and crew including Richard Briers, Susan Hampshire, Alistair Mackenzie, Hamish Clark, Lloyd Owen, Tom Baker, etc. Paul tries to persuade Lexie to stay at Glenbogle with him, but despite their attraction, Lexie takes Molly's advice - and the story of Hector and Donald's parting to heart.

Jess tries to take care of a bunch of poachers on the estate, while Golly is away on a holiday with Meg on the coast. Ewan drowns his sorrows at the pub and is arrested by the police after finding his father is cheating on his mum. Duncan plans to propose to Jess, who is baby-sitting a rare orchid with Molly, while Ewan runs from a radio authority officer is to trying to ban his pirate radio station. Ratings hit an all-time low in 2004, and BBC bosses axed the show, but promised that they would bring back many of the cast from earlier series for a fantastic series finale. Molly is not forthcoming with Golly and when Jess sets her father up, Golly falls in love with new dancing teacher, Meg.

Meanwhile, Katrina is put up for election on the Highland council and enlists the help of a woman from the marketing company to plan her election strategy against her opponent, Kilwillie. Molly tries to come to terms with being a widow after Hector's death and finds she has a suitor in the shape of new neighbour, Andrew.The estate is put up for sale and everyone makes arrangements for new homes as Paul and Golly become lovesick and the strength of Glenbogle's residents is put to the test. Ewan believes he's struck gold when he discovers that Amy has photographed a monster emerging from the loch. Ardverikie House, designed by John Rhind in 1870 and built in the Scottish baronial style, depicts Glenbogle Castle in Monarch of the Glen, while location filming took place in Kingussie and Laggan and scenes involving the loch use Loch Laggan.
