‘Outlander’ stars visit historic Scottish sites in new travel series ‘Men in Kilts’

Two stars of Outlander will head out on a road trip around Scotland for a new TV series.

Featuring actors Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish, Men in Kilts: A Roadtrip with Sam and Graham is coming soon on Starz.

The pair play Jamie Fraser and Dougal Mackenzie in the historical fantasy drama series, which recently concluded its fifth season.

The eight 30-minute episodes will celebrate the rich history and culture of Scotland, with the two Outlander stars meeting a variety of local experts and visiting a variety of interesting locations, including the Culloden battlefield and Glencoe.

Christina Davis, president of original programming at Starz, commented: “The genuine curiosity and passion that Sam and Graham have for the landscapes they visit and the stories they uncover while travelling through the heart of Scotland makes Men in Kilts: A Roadtrip with Sam and Graham a truly enjoyable journey of discovery for the audience.”

She added: “The series gives context and texture to Highland life and history, woven together, much like the tartan for which Scotland is so famous, and we look forward to taking this roadtrip with these two great friends.”

Men in Kilts: A Roadtrip with Sam and Graham will be available to watch in the UK on Amazon Prime shortly after it premieres on Starz in the US.

Work has already begun on the sixth season of Outlander, but due to the coronavirus pandemic it is currently unknown when filming can safely begin.

The new season will be based on the sixth book in Diana Gabaldon’s series, A Breath of Snow and Ashes.

Season 5 is available to watch free with a 7-day trial of Starz on Amazon Prime.
