After their amazing win at the National Championships, Fergus and the rest of the Hercules' Hopefuls are keen to get back to training as a team - it was brilliant to lift the trophy alongside the Wallace's Winners, but now that Calamity Coogan and Minnie McLeod are back on form, the two teams want to go back to competing against each other rather than together. But - to everyone's disgust - the Board are adamant: the team that won the Nationals is the only one that can compete in the upcoming Internationals. So in order to qualify, the two teams must work together as a squad. Wesley is furious and Fergus is disgusted, so Grandpa and Choppy come up with a plan: a training weekend in the Highlands to help them bond. But as soon as the two teams arrive at the boarding lodge the squabbles break out again. Daisy and Minnie will have to share a dorm with Belinda Bruce, and Choppy is outraged not to have his own private quarters. Then Wesley challenges Fergus to a head-to-head cross-country race - first one back to the camp wins. The weather is closing in, and the route is hilly and challenging. When Wesley and the others don't get back to the boarding house, and a storm starts to rage outside, Fergus knows their only hope is to get insider information from someone he knows will have the answers: Dad. So he's got to get up to speed and back to Nevermore before Wesley and his team come to harm in the hills...
