Oh, and we can’t forget to acknowledge Ned Gowan, played by Bill Paterson. What a superb job he did, especially in Outlander’s episode,The Devil’s Mark!
Ned is a lawyer from Edinburgh who acts as a legal advisor to Clan MacKenzie and collects the MacKenzie’s rent from the villiagers – keeps up with the records and receipts. He is the only person Dougal trusts with the money. Ned knows the law, inside and out, and apparently hanging around with the MacKenzies, he also loves an adventure.
