The Isle of Muck, in the Inner Hebrides, is home to the MacEwan family. Lawrence, the charismatic patriarch of the MacEwan family and laird of the tiny island, is struggling to accept he controls neither his life nor the isle he so loves.
It has been his mission to preserve the fragile society on the island and pass it onto future generations. However, he is also battling to accept the inevitability of change.
The Prince of Muck is a warm, observational portrayal of Lawrence and the beautiful Scottish landscape he belongs to.
