It’s the deep heart of winter and Matthew, with his mates Nick and Ross, go deer hunting. Not knowing how to butcher their game, they decide to visit a deer farmer in the central highlands. Along the way, they forage for aromatic black truffles, dig for peat in drizzling conditions with a whisky distiller, and then defrost themselves with a drink or two. Hungover the next day, they head off for a tranquil trout-fishing expedition in a nearby lake – they don’t catch anything, but it hardly seems to matter.
