The eight part travel docuseries, which is the brainchild of Sam Heughan, sees him and his fellow Outlander co-star Graham McTavish journey through Scotland on a road trip of discovery – covering everything from food and drink to fashion and ghosts.
The series, which has recently been shown in its entirety in America, hasn’t been available in the UK until now.
Men in Kilts: A Roadtrip with Sam and Graham shows the actors, who play Jamie Fraser and Dougal Mackenzie in the popular Outlander series, travelling all around the country to show Scotland’s history and modern day offerings.
The aim of the programme is to educate viewers - and the actors themselves - about the rich history of their homeland, visiting battle sites and other iconic landmarks across the country.
This isn’t the duos first collaboration outside of Outlander, they recently co-wrote the award-winning book Clanlands: Whisky, Warfare, and a Scottish Adventure Like No Other.
Heughan and McTavish filmed the series last year, after it was put on hold during lockdown. Viewers can look forward to watching them attempt to cook fresh seafood with chef Tony Singh, discover Graham’s ancestral home, get kitted out in kilts from Edinburgh’s Stewart Christies & Co and visit Glencoe and Culloden.
Last year Sam Heughan chatted all things whisky with us on our podcast, Scran, including why he chose a blend over a single malt, how filming Outlander made him fall in love with Scotland again and how The Sassenach was almost made in America.
