Dir: Frank Launder
Starring: Bill Travers and Bernadette O’Farrell
A young Hebridean islander travels to the mainland in search of a wife, only to be mistaken for a criminal
This Technicolor comedy is based on the 1952 novel of the same name by Nigel Tranter and features a delightful shot of a branch line train in the Scottish Highlands hauled by an ex-Caledonian Railway Class 439 0-4-4T. There are also three shots of Bill Travers walking along a railway line, presumably in the surrounding area. I was contacted by Richard Wylie who grew up in the region and believes these scenes were filmed around the West Highland line and the Ballachulish branch from Connel Ferry.
