When it comes to the women in his life, unlucky-in-love laird Paul has a knack of falling for the wrong ones. But the final series of Monarch sees him encountering an oddball local shepherdess who unexpectedly turns his head.

They're an unlikely pair, but it's clear there's a real spark between Iona and the handsome laird. Could this be the happy ending that Paul has always dreamed about?

"Because of his family background - or lack of it - Paul has always been desperate to have a proper wife and children," says Lloyd.

Finding himself single again, no-one will be too suprised to learn it isn't long before Paul, somewhat innocently, works his charms on some unsuspecting Highland lass!

"I tend to find if there is a single girl of a similar age in the vicinity of Paul MacDonald, then there's an inevitability he will end up going out with her," laughs Lloyd.

But the course of true love never runs smoothly in Glenbogle and Paul's attempts to impress only result in disaster.

Business-wise, this series Paul feels well and truly in pole position as the laird. He's finally achieved the respect of the community and feels at home at Glenbogle. Now that filming for the final series of Monarch has come to an end, London-born Lloyd - who has appeared in the show for the last three years - admits he will miss everything about the feelgood drama. But he's chuffed the BBC are giving the show the big send off it deserves.

"I love the fact the BBC are allowing us to quit while we are ahead and go out with a bang rather than a whimper." he says.

"Personally speaking, Monarch has helped me find a bit of Scotland I can call my own, and I'm really grateful for that. I've relished every moment I've spent up here - the Highland scenery is the best anti-depressant anyone could ever have and should be available on the NHS!"
