Off the coast of northern Scotland lies the Black Island, its ruined castle a grim warning to intruders. Those who set foot on the rocky shores are never seen again. No one will dare to venture there from Kiltoch. The dark secret must be uncovered, and it is Tintin, the boy reporter, who makes the attempt. A chain of mysterious events leads first to a house in Sussex, then to Scotland. Tintin is up against the unscrupulous Dr. Müller, but after many desperate adventures he and Snowy, with the help of the Thomsons, bring a cunning adversary to book.
