Continuity mistake: When Merida is climbing the rock to drink from the waterfall the rock is several meters away from the waterfall, but a few shots later it is centimeters away.

Factual error: When Merida's family are having lunch, potatoes are being eaten. Potatoes weren't introduced in the UK until the 16th century - this film is set around the 10th or 11th century.

Plot hole: During the scene where Merida gives her speech on "breaking tradition", her mother, as a bear, moves silently behind the majority of the crowd, so they don't see her. Fair enough. However, Merida and her father's clan are all looking in the same general direction (towards the crowd) while she's speaking - how does no one from Merida's clan see a bear moving at the back of the room?

Continuity mistake: After Mor'du gets crushed by a large piece of stone, and as the sun is rising, Merida removed the tapestry from Angus to place over her mother, who is still a bear, in hope to break the spell. Angus also appears to be in the circle of stones, yet, in the shot that views everyone in the circle of stones from above, Angus is nowhere in sight.

Factual error: When Merida is having her day out, the bird she sees is a Harris's Hawk. However, the Harris's Hawk is native to the central part of America, (southern North America down throughout much of South America) and wouldn't be seen in Scotland.

Revealing mistake: Just before Mor'du appears for the first time, Merida is holding the arrow she retrieved from the woods. When Elinor picks her up, turns around and starts walking with her, the arrow disappears from Merida's hand.

The belt that Queen Elinor wears in the first half of the movie forms a hidden Mickey when viewed from the front. You can see the distinct Mickey head and the two ears as connecting circles around her waist.
