Outlandish Swap V: The Fiery Cross

Scottish clans were originally a Highland way of life. The Highland clan was, above all things, a family; a family in which everybody believed they were all, from chief to blacksmith, descended from one founder or progenitor. They regarded themselves as very close kinsmen. This Swap is dedicated to such clan families and will be organized into four clans.

Murray Challenge

Lasses, We all ken that a picture is worth a thousand words, and Diana Gabaldon is the Mistress of words. To honor her, and all things Outlander, we’ll be working this challenge with pictures.

Your assignment: solve the quest and send me a picture or image.


Example: Find a photo of how Claire travels in time.
The answer to this is the standing stones at Craig na Dun.

Acceptable responses would be:


or http://easyweb.easynet.co.uk/~aburnham/scot/call4.htm


So there is not question about whether or not you were successful on your quest, you should include the words to your answer – such as, standing stones outside of Inverness or standing stones at Craig na Dun. That way, if I am looking at the stones and think they are the ones at Stonehenge, I would know that you had the right answer.
