Will echo the comments about the photography. Liked the twist at the end. Would give it 4 stars, if that link was working.

Gripping series with wonderful scenery. The ending is a little far-fetched, but it's all very enjoyable.

Don't want to wait for the DVD? You can watch it on our new streaming TV service Acorn TV right now!* It's perfect for fans of moody mysteries that entangle many characters in a small community, like Broadchurch and Happy Valley. And the scenery is lovely.

*To find the link to Acorn TV, look in our top menu under Browse > Movies, then on that page, look under Streaming Video E-Library in left menu. Or just go to E-Library > Movies.

I tried to enjoy this however a preposterous plot bled much of the enthusiasm away. Also, why is it some shows can't match daylight with nightfall? There's a scene in Loch Ness where the actors go from day to night in a matter of minutes. For gosh sakes this is basic film making.
Damn shame as the scenery is inviting and represents a character unto itself.

Five Plus stars for filming in the Highlands. less stars for acting & plot. I wonder if Siobhan Finneran has any other expressions than that of O'Brien from Downton Abbey? Having never seen Breaking Bad I've no clue as to Laura Fraser's acting - i just give her credit for being from the nearby area. Filmed the summer months of 2016.

It was interesting to view the bonus interviews & the scenery authentic. The Loch itself is somewhat overwhelming to sit & view, dark, so calm it's eerie & the depth is near disbelief. The Ft. Augustus Locks (at the bottom end of LochNess are easily seen just with a G search, a drone captures the beauty. The Caledonian Canal & Locks, also easy to find, wonderful to walk the paths along the banks. The Locks at the upper end of the loch are easily walkable from the town rail & bus station. I'd have been more interested had the story of the Brahan Seer & the development of the locks from the Irish sea through the land out to the Atlantic been the subject. If Nessie is your interest you'll find no shortage of gee-gaws in the area.

Watched this series in one afternoon ... it was interesting but not up to usual BBC or ITV standards. The story was stretched out into 6 episodes, when they could have finished it in 3 or 4 episodes. One of the observations I have is that the person who ends up being the murderer does not fit the murders and the 'why' of the murders is too ridiculous and beyond comprehension. As far as the college kids, they were beyond obnoxious and I found myself wanting something horrible to happen to them all, but especially to the daughter of the main female character .. she was the worst. If this were me. I think I would have thrown her out of my house for the way she disrespected the mother in the story.
In spite of the gorgeous Scottish locations, I would recommend this with a big dollop of disbelief.

Dark mystery series with numerous murders taking place in and around Lochnivoy, a fictional town on Loch Ness in Scotland. Good acting, especially by lead local investigator played by Laura Fraser, and a decent screenplay saves the circuitous story, which was drawn out to 6 episodes. The ending comes out of nowhere, so most of the build-up goes for naught unfortunately.

I enjoyed this whodunit! I also enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the village, the loch, and the mountains. Makes me want to go to Scotland.
