Writing on Instagram, Jonathan Scott said:”Some might say it’s an Outlander love story, but unlike Claire and Jamie, our families are both from Scottish villages only 15 minutes apart.”

The two towns of course were Carluke and Lanark - it’s by sheer coincidence their ancestors were neighbours, as the couple met filming an episode of Carpool Karaoke back in 2019.

Jonathan often speaks of his Scottish links on the Property Brothers show - his brother Drew even wore a kilt at his wedding back in 2019. The Property Brothers dad (the property father?) emigrated from his home-town in North Lanarkshire as a teenager to work in the film industry through to the late 1970’s.
