We are in a small boat in the company of six Arran men on their way to sit on the Jury at the Court of Session in Inveraray. No sooner has the boat left Brodick in Arran than things start to go wrong and in the conflict that arises the men begin to reveal their own sins.
Travelling through the South-west corner of the Highlands in the early 19th century, we get a flavour of life in the area as it starts to come under the influence of the great changes happening in the wider world, just before the time of the Highland Clearances. Each character's fate is bound in different ways to these changes and how they deal with them together.
Will the group manage reach the court in Inverary and if they do will they be competent to judge their fellow men with a clear conscience?
