I've written a few guides to Outlander filming locations in Scotland and if you're a fan you might be pleased to know more are on the way. I know many of you are travelling to Scotland to visit some of these locations for yourself and have created special boards on Pinterest to help with your itinerary. To make your planning that bit easier I have created some Outlander location images in optimal Pinterest size, ready to be shared with a quick click. If this proves a popular way to gather up that all important Outlander information I will create a few more so please let me know if this helps with your vacation planning or just satisfies your Outlander lust ;-)
Incidentally I'll be creating my own Outlander board on Pinterest very shortly so you might want to join me at https://uk.pinterest.com/scotadventures/. Happy Pinning!
Outlander fans can recreate one of the first scenes of the show by standing at the Bruce fountain in Falkland town centre and looking up to the window of Mrs Baird's B&B just as the ghost of Jamie did in the first episode. Mrs Baird's is in fact The Covenanter Hotel so you can go inside and enjoy a drink if you need a refreshment to quell all the excitement!
Preston Mill in the village of East Linton is where the very memorable scene of Jamie losing his shirt while hiding from the Redcoats was filmed. Preston Mill is owned by the National Trust for Scotland and tours of the interior run from May to September. If you have the time I recommend joining one as I found the walk through this quaint little building and the explanation of the milling process an interesting one.
Culross was mainly used as the fictional Cranesmuir in Outlander with the area around the Mercat cross being the most recognisable. Culross is the characterful and charming town that time forgot and is the most complete example in Scotland today of a Burgh of the 17th and 18th centuries. The distinctive yellow Culross Palace is an interesting place to visit and the lovely garden at the rear was used as Claire's herb garden in the series.
Doune Castle was used as the setting for Castle Leoch, the seat of the Clan MacKenzie. Owned by Historic Scotland, an entrance fee is in place if you want to explore the interior of this interesting castle and personally I think it is also worth investing in the audio guide which explains much of the history of the building.
