I didn't like this season because they killed off my favorite character. And they totally disregarded the romance from the last season for another gal that I found annoying at best. There were some funny episodes, but as far as I am concerned, this season killed the series.
The scenery is nice though, and I like the accent.

It just gets better and better

"I just don't understand the negative reviews. Series 3 had some of the wittiest episodes to date as well as the most heart-wrenching ones. It introduces some memorable new characters, including Stella, an alpha female banker handpicked to bring Glenbogle out of debt. Hector and Molly are as charming and as eccentric as ever. This is a series not to be missed, and I wish Series 4 would come out quickly, since in the U.K., Series 5 has already been released. Monarch of the Glen is television at its best."
Probably the best season yet

"I have to resort to the American DVD releases, so I have only seen what is out on DVD:( Release them faster!
This season brings the bank into the lives at Glenbogle and all kinds of fun happens as a result.
The only thing I really hated was the end - not only because Season 4 isn't out yet, but because the wrap up was somewhat lacking and felt like maybe the show had been cancelled and they wanted to tie up some loose ends quickly. I know the show goes on, and have no idea if it was in trouble or not at the time, but it does feel like that.
Despite this, I found myself glued to it and watched the entire season in just a couple days then sent it to my mother who did the same thing and then my friend who also sat and watched the entire series.
Thanks for another great DVD release - keep them coming!"
Liked it *better* without the Katrina whining...!

"I found this season much better than the first two. Frankly I didn't realize how much I found the Katraina character annoying, until I was able to watch the series without her. Her character became irritating in that she was always jumping to ridiculous, biased conclusions about Archie to the point where you just wanted to shake her. I realize that the writers were trying to keep some sort of conflict going between the two characters -- but really I think that's all that they had between them. They wrote almost no real moments of connection and understanding. If this had been someone that I knew in real life I would have thought Archie a complete idiot for having any interest in such a self-righteous holier-than-thou prig.
I thought that this season's conflicts with the bank's representative, while also contrived, did at least follow naturally from their conflicts over the need to make the estate viable financially. The final result of all of this is actually a reasonable culmination, as the plot follows where the emotions are connected. So I really liked this season."
