As if the beauty of the Scottish Highlands wasn’t compelling enough already, you can visit sites from the hit TV show “Outlander” and follow in the footsteps of your favorite characters. Feel the drama in real life by visiting some of these spots.
Midhope Castle as Lallybroch
“Outlander” fans will instantly recognize this stone castle as Lallybroch, the site of Jamie’s family estate and where much of the drama unfolds.
Lomond Hills as Inverness
Get an authentic taste of the Scottish countryside in the area that served as the setting for Inverness circa 1947. Here in the real-life town of Falkland, stand in the very same spots as some of your favorite characters from the show and soak in the scenery.
Doune Castle as Castle Leoch
Infamous as the site of Castle Leoch, Doune Castle is a popular stop on tours from Glasgow and Edinburgh. Also featured in Monty Python’s “The Holy Grail,” the famous castle is one of the most visited and photographed “Outlander” filming sites in Scotland.
Culross as Cranesmuir
No “Outlander” tour of Scotland would be complete without visiting Culross, the town that served as the setting for Cranesmuir, home of Geillis Duncan.
The Rings of Standing Stones as Craigh na Dun
Experience the stoic silence of the stones known in the show as Craigh na Dun, which have stood outside the city of Inverness for 3,000 years. This filming site is usually a launching point for full-day “Outlander” tours.
