With Golly away on holiday, Jess’s ghillie skills are tested after she suspects poachers are at large on the Glenbogle estate. Worried that the pochers are taking advantage of her inexperience, Jess’s insecurities are further fuelled after Paul suggests they join forces with another local ghillie, Stuart, to catch those responsible. Despite Jess’s protestations, Donald decides to take matters into his own hands and prepares to track down the poachers by typically unconventional means, with a little help from Ewan. Unsure about each other’s feelings following their kiss, an awkwardness lingers between Isobel and Paul. However, their blossoming relationship takes a turn for the worse when Isobel jumps to conclusions over Paul’s offer of financial help and advice. Elsewhere, Golly and Meg’s relationship continues to bloom but a dark cloud looms over their happiness after Meg is forced to make a difficult decision about her future. When Paul and Jess pay a visit to a nearby estate to warn them about poachers they meet new neighbour Lucy. Instantly attracted to Glenbogle’s Laird, Lucy invites Paul for drinks later that night. At the party, Lucy and Paul appear to hit it off, much to Isobel’s chagrin. As Lucy plays hostess to her guests there’s an unexpected arrival – Chester Grant, self made millionaire and Lucy’s boss.
