As a supporter of the Jacobite cause, Dougal seizes the opportunity to raise money for it in the evenings by reminding people of the hardships the English have brought on the clans. For this purpose he also speaks Gaelic (Episode 5 min.20), which on the one hand prevents Englishmen from listening – though there do not seem to be any – and on the other hand strengthens the feeling of sharing an identity, one that is endangered by the English intruders. This danger becomes even more real when later in that episode they find two Highlanders hanging from crosses, whereupon the so far longest sequence in Gaelic follows. First there is the burial, which is held in Gaelic, and then there is another scene in a pub, where Dougal argues for the Jacobite cause. Without a doubt the death of these two men, who they assume to be victims of the English, has rekindled their hatred against the English enemy and in turn their sense of belonging together as Scotts.
