Where whimsical is a way of life

Who said the Scottish rural Highlands were quiet?

From illicit alcohol to a ‘bad luck’ skull, old traditions to child eco-

warriors, Stroma and her quirky community must find a way to save what they love

Add in a TV series, an overabundance of apples and the long standing rivalry with the next village, life on the North Coast 500 doesn’t sound so gentle after all.


Will Stroma and her delightful friends manage to maintain their way of life and keep hold of their beloved forest? Or will their woods be destroyed for ever?


Follow the villagers as they struggle, laugh and celebrate in the beauty that is the Scottish Highlands
