Two actresses had to quit "Monarch of the Glen" due to pregnancy. Lorraine Pilkington (Katrina Finlay) starred in series 1-2 but missed out on 3. Simone Lahbib (Isobel Anderson) starred in series 6 but missed out on 7. See more »
The details of Hector's history as a laird are altered throughout the series. For example, in the first episode of the series he claims to be the 14th laird of Glenbogle but in the 6th season he is referred to as the 23rd. See more »
You gave Donald the questions? Why?
Because I didn't want you to be laird. I thought that if you weren't, we'd have a chance... er, it's complicated.
Not for me, it wasn't. You knew what this meant to me, Lucy.
I did it because I love you, and I wanted us to be together. And I knew that if you loved me, I could tell you and you'd forgive me.
I'm not sure I can forgive you.
'Cos you don't love me, do you?
Lucy, I wanted to. It's just...
It's just Isobel, isn't it? It's always been Isobel.

I watched this when it was first screened in early 2000 and eagerly await the new series starting in January 2001. It was a thoroughly engaging series that was fun to watch.
The Scottish castle and backdrop make a pleasant setting and the characters are delightful. I hope it will continue for more series and the excellent cast will re-appear. The story in a way is incidental. There is a place for this sort of drama which is neither heavy nor shallow. It just makes you feel good - quality for a popular audience.
If you have a good script, a good cast and a committed production team, then drama could always be like this. I wish it was. Who needs soaps when you can have the real thing. More please!
