The first season of the eight-episode travel series, which is available on Amazon Prime, shows the pair whisky tasting, folk dancing, hanging off the edge of a cliff, wrangling a flock of wild sheep, while discovering the true legacy of their Outlander characters. 

Men in Kilts is up against other successful shows, including National Geographic’s Running Wild with Bear Grylls, Netflix’s Somebody Feed Phil, CNN’s Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy and the Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race.
