They did have someone play some piob I think. On combed and beaded pipes that appeared to have SS mounts ;-) And a harp with nylon strings. The harper also played recorder, which seems possible but I've never heard of that.

But in a show about time travel I suppose anachronisms aren't really possible ;-)
There's a highland piper playing "a piob" in season 1 episode 2, "Castle Leoch," starting at 43:20 that sounds like "Tulloch Ard, the MacKenzie's Gathering."

Not from the movie, but somewhere early on is a reference to Brown Haired Maiden and after the wedding they dance Cock O’ the North.

I just want to point out that Eric Rigler is the piper, on Highland pipes, uilleann pipes, and Scottish smallpipes and that the use of all three of these instruments is quite authentic to 18th century Scotland.

Yes all the Outlander fans will perk up when you play Skye Boat Song, and probably not recognize anything else.

BTW the tartan colour-scheme used in Outlander is anachronistic by 200 years, having been invented in the late 1940s. There are numerous other issues with the historicity of the Outlanders costumes, but a TV show costumer's job is to make a beautiful show, not to be a museum.

Not to mention dropping a monolingual English Speaker into a society that is largely monolingual Gaelic speaking. Also, a 20th century individual would have a very hard time, language differences aside, with an 18th century tribal society, the social mores would be extremely different and violation of these could result in bad consequences. I always liked the graffiti scrawled on the Duke of Sutherland's infamous statute (photo taken back in the 1930s) - a' Ghaidhealtachd gu na Gaidheil - the Highlands for Highlanders. Unfortunately, Hollywood is forever promoting Braveheart.

Cheers -

Wes
