From People Magazine:
PEOPLE recently caught up with Heughan in the latest issue to ask a few burning questions about the series, the first being: what is the proper etiquette or guidelines for wearing kilts?
“I would say you can wear a kilt whenever the fancy takes you,” Heughan, 40, says with a smile. “In Scotland, we have very traditional formal dress, [wearing kilts] for a wedding or a funeral or any of those sort of formal events, but there are people in Scotland that wear kilts daily, every day. Our kilt tailor [on Men in Kilts] he wears them all the time. I’ll wear them sometimes if I’m going to a rugby match or a football match, or if I just feel like it.”
“There isn’t any really formality to it,” he continues. “Back in the day people wore kilts all the time. They were very adaptable and were really useful actually. They had so many layers and so much material that you could fold it in certain ways, make pockets out of it, you could carry a baby, you could carry your shopping, keep you warm in the winter. They really are incredible. And in fact, riding a horse in a kilt is terrific, they give you a lot of padding, so I would recommend the kilt.”
From the NY Post:
Did you have a favorite part of Scotland that you got to explore?
I think the sporting aspect of it brought some incredible experiences: playing golf at St. Andrews, being allowed to go onto the turf at the Braemar Highland Games. That was an enormous privilege, and to meet those people and hear their stories was fantastic. Every single day apart — from one when Sam had to go skinny-dipping in the North Atlantic — was sunny and amazing, so that was also a surprise. We were very lucky.
You also check out the Culloden battlefield, which is fictionalized in “Outlander.” What was that like?
That was such a pivotal moment for Scotland; I wonder if they realized at the time what the effect of that battle was going to be on Scottish and British history and, by extension, many other parts of the world. However much we can get into it as characters, nothing beats being on the actual battlefield and seeing it.

Though it seems Sam has the edge — after he triumphantly lifts a big bolder from the ground and onto a stone plinth — Graham slowly sneaks into the lead. By the end of the episode, Sam is the one who has to strip down and take the plunge. Graham McTavish is still thrilled about it.
“All I can say is that it was such a sweet moment when I was able to witness him running in the freezing rain and wind into the North Atlantic Ocean,” McTavish told Decider. “So I literally fell to my knees with joy. I know this might seem a little petty, but…”
“Very petty,” Sam Heughan said, interrupting. “Childish. I mean, the amount of jubilation and then and then also, like, as we were driving to the skinny dipping, I mean, he just couldn’t contain himself.”
McTavish said, “What was so great, we had such great weather and on the day he had to do that, it was terrible. It’s not that I delight in watching him suffer like that, but by this point, I had been put through quite a lot.”
