Based on a novel by Nigel Tranter, The Bridal Path is a light-hearted look at the somewhat unfortunate results that can come of the continued marrying of fairly close cousins in a restricted and remote community. Set in the Hebrides off Scotland, the story tells how Ewan MacEwan leaves the isle of Eorsa in search of the perfect wife, but finally returns to marry Katie. Written by

This is a hidden gem, because hardly anyone seems to know of this funny story of the search for a kindred spirit through marriage. Perhaps we don't all live in a situation corresponding to the offshore Scottish islands, but the hilarious exaggeration of this setting is extremely effective. I just hope that those who live in the Hebrides and Shetland don't mind it too much.
