Seeking her long lost uncle, Ada Shore arrives at Skerryvore University to find him working under another name as the Gate Keeper. Ada is mistaken by the Principal as his new secretary so she jumps headlong into the role
A woman (Diane Hart) visiting a Scottish University looking for her uncle is mistaken as the new secretary. The students at the college are taking part in drunken revelries which annoys the college Dean.
The new secretary takes an interest in college affairs and smooths things over when the Dean expels a student for the drunken partying. She also finds her uncle who really is a poet pretending to be a caretaker and also runs a bar on the side.
Charles Hawtrey plays the Dean's pompous son who gets involved with the students partying. Ronnie Corbett has a small early role.
