Outlander continuity error: How old is Young Ian supposed to be in Outlander?


When Claire went back to Jamie in 1766 after a 20-year absence, she met Young Ian, who was 14 at the time.

This was also the age, Young Ian ran away from the idyllic Highlands to Edinburgh, where Jamie found him and returned him to his parents at Lallybroch.

In the ninth novel, Go Tell The Bees That I am Gone, Young Ian is currently 28-years-old with the action taking place between 1779 and 1780.

By the time the 10th novel is published, Young Ian will again be aged up but it’s not clear by how much.
