Lexie and Duncan Archie's plans to turn the crumbling estate into a cash cow are thrown off course by the arrival of a team of bankers from the firm that backs the estate. Six months of Justine's imperial rule has taken its toll and the natives are restless. Lexie is vowing to quit her job, Hector and Molly have already left the house, and Katrina has decided to avoid the estate altogether - having been deterred by the jealous Justine.

Feargal The appointment of a Head Ranger - charged with dragging Glenbogle into the 21st century - brings fresh tension to the big house. The competing applications pose a tough dilemma for Archie. Should he promote from within or buy in outside expertise and risk alienating the household? Outsider Fergal MacLure has all the right qualifications, but how will Duncan and Golly react to being passed over, and what will his appointment mean for Archie and Katrina's relationship? It is clear that Katrina has already taken a shine to Fergal, and Archie knows that appointing the dashing Irishman could cost him dear.

Archie Archie would rather just forget about his 30th birthday, but there's precious little chance of that with Molly secretly organising birthday celebrations and Hector preparing a big surprise of his own. Obsessed by Archie's age and the absence of a long-term heir, Hector resolves to marry Archie off. He thinks he's struck gold when he meets Kieran, a rich Irish nobleman, and his charming daughter Tanya. Whilst fending off a host of unsuitable brides, Archie has a fight on his hands with a cantankerous former tenant, the cranky Tosh McKellan. Katrina and Fergal are on hand to help, and Katrina makes the most of the opportunity to let the birthday boy know that she and Fergal could be more than just good friends.

Elsewhere on the estate, Archie must attempt to turn a derelict crofter's cottage into a fully functioning tourist attraction - in just 36 hours.
