* * * SPOILER WARNING! * * *
You may encounter SPOILERS below. If you haven't yet finished THE SCOTTISH PRISONER, you may want to be careful reading this post!
Leighton Moss, in the Lake District, England (mentioned on p. 51)
The Fells at Derwentwater, in the Lake District (near where Helwater is supposed to be located)
Lough Ree, Athlone, Ireland
Athlone Castle, Ireland. (If you take away the very modern boats and the cars parked near the dock, I think it looks very much as Diana described it in the book.)
Inchcleraun monastery, Ireland
And here are some miscellaneous pictures and links relating to things that were mentioned in SCOTTISH PRISONER:
How to make bran mash for horses
The rules of picquet, the card game that Lord John, Hal, and Harry were playing in Chapter 4 ("Not Good").
Bog butter - mentioned by Abbot Michael on p. 241.
Lindow Man - body preserved in a bog, mentioned in the Author's Notes at the end of SCOTTISH PRISONER.
An Iroquois war club. Diana said on Compuserve that this looks like the one Siverly used on Jamie.
The photo above shows a young child's corset from the 18th century. Here's an article explaining the practice of corseting young children, and a set of child's stays from the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Bridle with snaffle. No wonder two-year-old Willie nearly strangled himself when Jamie left him alone for a few minutes with one of these!
I hope you enjoy this collection. I had a lot of fun putting it together!
