[edit] Information

Stick. Rope. Cutters. Life Aid. This is what Ena MacDonald, now 79, packs in her jeep before setting off to check the family's Ardbhan Highland cattle on an uninhabited island off North Uist on the Outer Hebrides. Between tides and wild weather, this film journeys with the MacDonald family across a year as they tend their cattle and share their stories of how they have developed the herd into one of the finest examples of the breed. Ena bought her first Highland cow when her son Angus was 10. Angus forged a vision to build a large herd. Starting from nothing, Ena and Angus have devoted themselves to breeding cattle that are true to type using the best bloodlines. For 30 years buyers have travelled from all over Europe to buy the treasured Ardbhan cattle. Angus and his wife Michelle risked everything to realise Angus's vision. Their children Alexander, Sarah, Fraser and his wife Carianne work hard with them, everyone contributing to the many family businesses that make things pay. When one of their bulls makes the highest price at the Oban Highland cattle sale, all that the family have worked hard for is affirmed. Angus sees that sticking to what he believes in has paid off. Ena is delighted her grandchildren are dedicating themselves to the future of the Ardbhan Fold. In Gaelic with English subtitles.
