TV Guide gave the film three out of five stars, and wrote, "This well-paced film is particularly strong in its realistic depiction of children"; and Nothing But The Night wrote, "With its beautifully photographed images of Edinburgh’s Old Town and some utterly beguiling landscape shots of the main Highland settings which were filmed around Loch Earn, this is perhaps one of the CFF’s classiest looking titles, bolstered by fine art direction from Hammer’s Bernard Robinson and a lyrical orchestral score by Anthony Hopkins."
