Glencoe and Ballachulish are to feature prominently in a BBC programme scheduled for this Saturday – Burns Night.
BBC Scotland will transmit the new short film inspired by Robert Burns’ Address to a Haggis, from the same production team behind the acclaimed short film TAM, which was shown last year and was inspired by the famous poem, Tam O’Shanter.
Produced by Velvet Wolf Films, Haggis is a light-hearted drama following the lives of the MacNeep family in their ill-fated plans to get together for Burns night 2020.
Haggis factory owners Jimmy (Jimmy Chisholm) and Isobel (Elaine MacKenzie Ellis) are keen to brag about their latest award for their outstanding Haggis recipe at the annual family Burns night reunion.
But the question is whether their grown-up children, beset by their own vagaries of life, will make it to the table in time.
The film will be broadcast on BBC Scotland at 9.30pm.
