This impressive and rarely screened biopic of one of Scotland's best-known outlaws, stars David Hawthorne in full tartan kilt and tammy and tells the story of the MacGregors in the early 18th century. Shot entirely on location in the Trossachs and nearby Stirling Castle the film makes liberal use of Scots for the inter-titles ("dinnae fash yersel") and includes epic fight scenes, with over 800 men of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders enlisted as extras in a dramatic battle. Presented with a newly commissioned score written and performed live by leading Scottish composer David Allison.
Supported by Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI's Film Audience Network, and funded by Screen Scotland and Lottery funding from the BFI.
