In Scotland in 1751, young David Balfour is shanghaied aboard a ship where he meets Jacobite rebel Alan Breck Stewart with whom he escapes to the Scottish Highlands, dodging the redcoats.
Peter O'Toole was cast for the part of Robin MacGregor, because he had played the pipes in his youth and the director was looking for a tall young actor who could play the pipes.

Alan Breck Stewart: Enough. You can play the pipes. Make the most of that.
When David and Alan are reunited, Alan swears an oath to being innocent. In a brief close-up his beard changes.
