Sam and Graham took us on a history lesson into the superstitions and witch laws. Here are the best moments from Men in Kilts Season 1, Episode 4.

We head into some of the dark history of Scotland. At the same time, we get to see Graham scared of the things that go bump in the night. It’s certainly an interesting episode of the series.

This episode isn’t just about scaring Graham. It’s a chance to look at the superstitions and ghost stories of the past. It’s a chance to experience the history of witchcraft, as well as the story of the real standing stones.

There were some excellent moments throughout the episode, most of them involving Graham, if I’m being honest.

5 best moments from Men in Kilts Season 1, Episode 4

Graham’s fears at Greyfriars

Graham McTavish certainly shared some of his fears during the episode. It’s not that he believed in it all, but that the ghost stories hyped him up. Also, the idea of walking into a dark room with no idea what could be inside can be scary. As humans, we don’t like the unknown.

These sorts of things continue throughout the episode. It’s certainly fun to see that side of Graham’s personality.

Showing off the tools used to make witches “confess”

After a trip to Greyfriars, Sam and Graham headed to talk about witches. Of course, this has a deep connection to Outlander, where Claire and Geillis were put on trial for being witches.

We got a chance to see some of the tools that were used to make people “confess” to being witches. Of course, it was Graham who became the guinea pig to show how the tools were used. Often, we just see drawings and the tools laid out on the side. It was great to see just what the (mostly) women went through when accused of being witches.

Sam having to do the touristy thing

Men in Kilts Season 1, Episode 4 took us to the Isle of Lewis, where the Callanish Stones stand. They are the standing stones Outlander used to make a cast of to have the fake stones of Craigh na Dun in the studio.

Of course, Sam did the one thing all tourists end up doing. He just couldn’t help himself. He put his hand on the stone to see if he would travel through time.

While that was fun, we also got a bit of a history behind the stones, finding out that they’ve been standing for about 5,000 years.

Sam and Graham at the Beltane celebration

There is a deep history in the various fire and sun festivals in Scotland. That’s something that is used in Outlander, so it was natural that it would come up in Men in Kilts. We got a chance to experience a Beltane festival.

It’s more than just the dance around the stones we saw on Outlander. There’s a bigger gathering that happens, which Sam and Graham certainly seemed to enjoy. It’s fun to see them just be themselves for a while.

Recreating the epic scene at the stones

Of course, the scene while the credits rolled was worth watching. We got a chance to see Sam and Graham recreate an epic scene from Outlander Season 2. It was the finale scene when Jamie sends Claire back through the stones.

This time, Sam played Claire and Graham played Jamie. Not only did we see our favorite scene play out, but we also got to see just how much fun the two actors love to have with their jobs.
