Tintin file en Ecosse où un gorille hante un manoir isolé sur une île rocheuse. En voulant aider un avion en difficulté, Tintin se fait tirer dessus. C'est le début d'une des plus palpitantes aventures du célèbre reporter. Poursuivant ses assaillants, nous le retrouvons sur une île rocheuse écossaise, réputée comme étant le repère d'une "bête" mystérieuse, mais abritant en fait une bande de faux-monnayeurs. Après diverses péripéties, Tintin mettra bien évidemment fin à ces activités illicites et révelera au grand jour la véritable nature de la bête.
