This nostalgic home movie features a couple's holiday in the Scottish Highlands. Arriving at Inverness by train, they combine visits to relatives with more general touring. We see them at Castle Urquhart, by Loch Ness, at Culloden Viaduct and at Laggan Dam. We see Highland pipe bands, gymnastics and Scottish country dancing before visiting the livestock yards at Inverness Station. After visiting relatives at Altyre the couple depart from Inverness for the journey home.
