Paca: From Acting, Advocating, To Creating a Story of Their Own

Diana Gabaldon’s timeless story has brought to the forefront themes of humanity, war, honor, hope, and the strength of bonds. Powerful characters and poetic narratives continue to captivate audiences, but it is also the degree of historical accuracy, of both the book and television show, that continues to bridge fiction to reality. A series beloved by millions has inspired a movement to reflect and pay tribute to the poignant events of the past that undoubtedly influenced the course of history. The rippling effect of Outlander’s global success opened doors to many unforeseen possibilities. Whether it be to relive literary destinations, celebrate the diverse history and heritage of Scotland, or to help expand the artistic community that celebrates this treasured story, Outlander continues to be a catalyst for connection and change across the globe.

We at Timeless Sass3nach Journeys have marveled at Outlander’s ability to pave new pathways to highlight and explore Scotland’s alluring landscape. Following new visionary concepts takes courage. However, when you surround yourself with kindred spirits who share the same aspirations to bring attention to the stunning backdrops of this series, one can most certainly find strength, certitude, and purpose. Paca, The Clan, is one such group that celebrates the value of friendship – building upon each other’s ideas, skills, and talents. Their natural and unstoppable camaraderie has led them to expand their roles to advocate for Jacobite history, support their local communities through charitable endeavors, and continue the Paca story by writing a screenplay to tell the story of a united group of Highlanders beyond the devastation of Culloden.

We are pleased to present our most recent interview with Grant McGregor from Paca. Come and discover their story and the progress of Grant’s period drama, Paca: After Culloden.

Clan Tours: Walking The Paths Of Our Favorite Outlander Characters

The Outlander series has changed the manner in which we view historical fiction. Initially written for practice, Diana Gabaldon did not limit herself on the contents she wrote about. The portrayal of the world of Outlander includes elements such as war, adventure, spirituality, morality, family, bonds of friendship, and even components of fantasy. However, through it all, the story was built on the foundation of true history. Diana Gabaldon’s gift for research enables her to accurately reflect historical timelines of the 18th century while also portraying real-life figures and important points of world heritage within the light of fiction. Her gift of vivid and descriptive storytelling is unmistakable and unlike any other author. This often invites Outlander enthusiasts, like ourselves, to search for the footsteps of history upon which the series was based and, perhaps, follow the fictional path of our beloved characters in the process.
