In 1925, John Buchan published his second most famous novel, "John MacNab"; three high-flying men - a barrister, a cabinet minister and a banker - are suffering from boredom.
They concoct a plan to cure it. They inform three Scottish estates that they will poach from each two stags and a salmon in a given time.
They sign collectively as 'John McNab' and await the responses.
This novel is a light interlude within the "Leithen Stories" series - an evocative look at the hunting, shooting and fishing lifestyle in Highland Scotland.
