Royal Ecossais


This new group (started in 2011) is impressive. These photos are from this year's Fulda. The Royal Ecossais were French Scots who came over in the '45. Webpage for this German group here

Outlander

Wiki Watched a couple of episodes of this new big budget series set in the Jacobite Rebellion. It's based on novels that tell the story of a woman who is transported back in time from the 1940s to the 1740s and finds herself in a tug of love across the divide of history. It's OK - the redcoats are the usual bad guys a la Hollywood but the settings and Scottish locations make it worth the effort. IMDB
Don't worry if you havent seen it - it's not available in this country yet - it's on in the US on Starz.
