Rob Roy

Other mistake: In the scene around the camp fire, Rob Roy can be clearly seen with with plasters on his hand.

Other mistake: Halfway in the first fight scene, Montrose "confesses" to Argyll about his weariness, as the POV changes there is a heavy blurry skip at the top of the screen. (00:15:24)

Factual error: James Graham, 4th Marquess of Montrose, became 1st Duke of Montrose in 1707, six years before the film is set, although the film refers to him throughout as a Marquess.

More quotes from Rob Roy

Question: Right at the beginning of the movie, one of Rob's men sniffs at and even takes a bite out of a piece of a cow pat and can estimate the tinkers head start. How is that possible?

Answer: Cow patties leaving the cow and plopping on the ground leave a distinctively odor and start to harden up after a certain length of time. It isn't to hard to speculate that, since these are cattlemen by trade, they would have a systematic way of knowing how long it would take for a cow pie to harden & lose it's odor. Example: they would know that a cow pie left out for 2 days would lose half it's odor & become semi-hard but still have a mushy center.
