The late Finlay J. Macdonald's popular classic trilogy comes to television. Gruth is Uachdar is a timeless rite-of-passage story about a young boy, Finlay, and his family's efforts to make a home in one of the most magnificent - and uncompromising - landscapes in Europe. The high mountains and white shell-sand beaches of Harris form a breathtaking natural setting for this bitter-sweet tale of boyhood. It is 1930. Finlay, four years old, nearly burns down his family's half-built new home.

As the first episode unfolds, Finlay hears the history of the family, evicted during the Clearances. Too young to attend an engagement party in the new village, Finlay decides to evade his babysitter.
