I really enjoyed this. The book is one of my favourite cosy reads - handsome strong men, roaring fires, glasses of whisky and glamorous parties in Scotland.
This film is pretty faithful to the book with a few minor changes. Noel is renamed Neil and a few characters (Hamish) are missing entirely. But broadly this is nicely done.
Edward Fox and Michael Yorke both give v. good performances as does Jacqueline Bisset. The casting is pretty good too in the light of the book. I was disappointed to learn that it was filmed in Ireland not Scotland which is a bit of a travesty but it still looks beautiful.
It is not a brilliant Oscar winning type film but of its genre its v. nicely done.
For Rosamunde Pilcher fans, a good way to spend a winter evening - watch this with a glass of red wine snuggled up by yourself on the sofa.
