So many have been asking for pictures of different parts of our house. It is hard to believe, given that we are doing Outlander, that the house actually has a Priests Hole.
Here is some info on what exactly a Priests Hole is:
“These hiding places were created to conceal priests during a time when Catholics were persecuted. Under Queen Elizabeth I, priests were often imprisoned, tortured and even killed. Priest holes were specially disguised within a house to baffle search-parties.”
Anyway, this is the one in our Lallybroch.
We don’t have any priests to hide, and though we both have a lot of catholicism in our pasts, there isn’t much need for the Priest Hole these days. That said, both children have been showed the “wee room”, and should anyone step too far out of line… 😉
