For a magical escape shared with friends and family, look no further than this majestic abode.”

Mirren Mack, who plays a young teenage mother on the show, yesterday spoke about filming the programme in Scotland.

“It was really emotional because this part of Scotland is so rich with life and I’m standing there after a couple of years at drama school, finally doing what I love more than anything else in the world, here in this place that I also love.”

She added: “I was such a mess that I actually started to cry.” She also aired her previous fears about being “different” to other up-and-coming actors due to her modest background.
