The farmers get ready for winter. On the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, ex-barrister Sandy and his fellow crofters gather in their sheep from the moor and club together to dip them in insecticide before mating time.

On the mainland in the west, Sybil and George battle to gather in their herd of cattle, who are a bit frisky after living freely on the hills for many months. Sybil, who has individual names for them all, must separate the cows from their calves before they are all sent off to lowland farms for the winter.

In central Scotland near Loch Lomond, hill farmers Bobby and Anne must also send their sheep away for the winter months, before they head off on their annual family holiday in Tenerife. East of Inverness, Martin and Mel bring their large herd of pedigree cattle into sheds for the winter, and welcome in their first new calf of the season.

Sybil and George discover an unexpected new calf, and Sandy takes his youngest sheepdog Doyal for a training session. After her holiday, Anne's back on the hills gathering sheep - but she and sheepdog Jim are both a little rusty. Martin and Mel take two promising young bulls to a show called Stars of the Future - but will the teenage bulls be in the mood to perform?
