Out­law King, star­ring Chris Pine as the Scot­tish king, will be re­leased glob­ally on Net­flix to­day, Novem­ber 9.

To cel­e­brate the re­lease, VisitS­cot­land has or­gan­ised a so­cial me­dia chal­lenge with two pro­lific blog­gers con­nect­ing so­cial me­dia users with the true story of one of Scot­land’s most fa­mous Kings in his­tory.

Neil Robert­son and David Weinc­zok from the so­cial me­dia col­lec­tive, Scot­landers are set to com­pete against each other to visit as many film and real-life lo­ca­tions as­so­ci­ated with Robert the Bruce in un­der 36 hours.

Part of the chal­lenge is for David to visit places with a link to The Bruce, and as he was crowned at Scone in 1306, he will make a brief stop at the palace on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

Lady Mans­field from Scone Palace said: “As the place where Robert the Bruce was crowned, Scone Palace is de­lighted to be part of VisitS­cot­land’s Out­law King chal­lenge.”

With the chal­lenge be­gin­ning at 10am on Satur­day Novem­ber 10, Neil’s move­ments can be fol­lowed us­ing the hash­tag #ReelOut­lawKing and David can be fol­lowed on the Hash­tag #RealOut­lawKing.

“Just as we love that his­tory lovers see us as a nec­es­sary stop-off on their tours of Scot­land, we’re ex­cited to have David Weinc­zok in­clude us in his unique whirl­wind tour. May the #RealOut­lawKing win,”added Lady Mans­field.
