Tintin an his faithfu dug, Tarrie, are on the trail o an international gang o conterfaiters.

Forby, they themsels are bein follaed by the twa glaikit detectives, Nisbet an Nesbit! The trail leads them til the faur-awa north o Scotland, whaur legend tells o an unco craitur, the Hairy Etin, that bides i the ruins o Corbiecraig Castle, on the dreich an oorie Derk Isle.

Unfleggit by tales o beasts an bogles, Tintin an Tarrie are makkin til the isle tae see whit’s
gaun on …

    Tha mi cuideachd toilichte gum bi BBC Alba a’ cruthachadh drama ùr sa Ghàidhlig a dh’aithghearr.

    Air adhart!
