Storyline

Stan and Ollie stowaway to Scotland expecting to inherit the MacLaurel estate. However Stan's inheritance amounts to a set of bagpipes and a snuff box. The boys are tricked into enlisting in the army and are posted to India where the heiress to the MacLaurel estate has moved to be near her guardian. Her Scottish sweetheart Allan also enlists. The boys are "volunteered" by the Sergeant (Finlayson) to impersonate officers at the palace of Mir Jutra and foil a plot to murder the officers by overturning several beehives.

6 October 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

As a Scot I really do resent how American movies portray us . We all have incomprehensible accents ( I can`t understand a word Scottie from STAR TREK says and I`m Scottish . Perhaps they should have employed a Scottish actor ? ) , we all have funny names like Gregor McGregor ( Randell Wallace is an American with a Scots sounding name , Scots are usually called Jim or Dave ! ) , wear strange skirts called kilts ( We only wear them at weddings ) and play strange instruments called bagpipes . It goes without saying this L&H feature plays up to the stereotypes but seeing as it`s Stan and Ollie all this cliche can be forgiven , same as I can forgive all the other flaws one can expect from seeing one of their movies after a period of many years , it`s rather episodic and loosely plotted with the main story of Stan and Ollie joining the army not happening untill half way through the movie`s running time , but it`s also funny and James Finlayson ( A Scottish actor ) getting to play a Scottish Sergeant called " Leatherpuss "

By no means one of their greatest highlights - The features seen slightly drawn out compared to their shorts - BONNIE SCOTLAND is still one of the better L&H feature length movies
