For many of the star's IGTV posts, he appears in front of a bookcase which seems to be inside his personal residence. The videos are usually to promote his recent programmes, projects and his own whisky brand, The Sassenach.

Sam positioned his camera so that viewers could observe most of his filled bookcase, which is brimming with books and ornaments, as well as an impressive collection of POP! figures.

In one of the appearances, the landscape angle allowed Sam's fans to see even more of the room that he shoots in. Alongside the wooden bookcase there is a dark blue wall which features a marble shelf and an ornate uplight with small cream shade.

The top shelves of the cabinet are empty – perhaps Sam is leaving room for some copies of his very own book, Clanlands.
