I have a very faint recollection of this movie, having watched it as a kid. The general plot was about a big man (who may or may not have been an English or Scottish lumberjack), who lived in a tiny cottage on top of a luscious green meadow with a little dog. He goes on a big adventure across the world and comes back a changed man (potentially returning with a wife?)

I remember the aesthetic of his little cottage being similar to The Sound of Music, so I'd guess it's a mid 50s to mid 60s movie. Anyone have any ideas what it could be?

Could you describe some of the adventures he went on? What makes this movie stick out in your mind? Also what country did you see it in? –  Kevin Howell May 19 at 19:29
I saw it on British TV in the late 90s. I know the movie was definitely in English, and I'm leaning to thinking it was a British film. It was shown during the middle of the day so must have been family-friendly in terms of rating. In terms of the adventures, I feel the sea may have played a part but I'm not 100% sure. –  Essential May 20 at 22:17
