Dumbarton= fort britan named after king Britan (where we get the name Britain from) the Phoenicians that landed there NOT!!! Vikings. It's VI kings their is no such thing as Vikings they have made them up to hide where the royals (purple) originated from. Teach Scotland's real history and stop pushing this fake story

No such thing as Vikings! It was the Phoenicians that landed, the VI kings that now rule Europe came from Phoenicia. King Britan where we get Britain from and Britannia who was a God of the seas. Phoenicians were sea fairing people who worshipped the bull like the fictitious Vikings check the helmets. Scotland's history has been hidden and its time we know the truth

24 years ago, Diana Gabaldon published the first Outlander book, which is why today we celebrate World Outlander Day. You probably know that the Outlander TV series was filmed in several of our properties, which is why we're pretty fond of it. Read more here:
