The delightful all-star re-make of the beloved Scottish comedy classic, featuring Gregor Fisher, Eddie Izzard and more. The inhabitants of the isolated Scottish island of Todday in the Outer Hebrides are largely unaffected by wartime rationing, until the supply of whisky runs out. Then gloom descends on the disconsolate natives.

Things take an unexpected turn for the better when the freighter S.S. Cabinet Minister runs aground in heavy fog late one night, with 50,000 cases of whisky, bound for export to America, on-board.

Notwithstanding an untimely hiatus, imposed by the Sabbath, the community come together as-never-before, and offload the sacred cargo, stashing the purloined whiskey in a cave before the ship goes down.

Meanwhile, Captain Paul Waggett, the stuffy English commander of the local Home Guard wants to confiscate the salvaged cargo, but not of the wily islanders can outfox him and preserve their precious Whiskey Galore!

All Byre In The Botanics events take place in fully covered and seated marquee in the beautiful Botanic Gardens in the heart of St Andrews.
