A young piper, Donald Peter (DP) Gillies, brought up in a remote community in the West Highlands, signs up to join the famous Lovat Scouts. He and his childhood friend are destined for the horrors of Gallipoli and the deprivation of the First World War. After being seriously injured in action, he encounters Louise, a Queen Alexandra Corps nurse who cares for him. As DP lies wounded, far from Scotland, his mind turns to home and he recalls the tales that have been passed down his family from generation to generation. The story then follows the pair's desperate escape bid through enemy territory.
Angus MacDonald has lived all his life in the Highlands and is steeped in the folklore. Angus served in the local regiment, the Queen's Own Highlanders, before building a financial publishing company that was sold in 2007. He now has businesses in recycling, renewables and education, and runs the Moidart Trust, a charitable organisation that helps people to develop companies in the West Highlands
