‘Droughtlander’ is official over!! #Outlander #Scotland

So the long ‘Droughtlander’ is official over, and it is back on our screens. Thank goodness! This series promises to be as amazing as the last. Check out the trailer...

 Outlander | Season 3 Official Trailer |STARZ

Last September I found myself in Scotland and I could not but help checking out some of the fabulous Historical sites where Outlander was filmed, and I thought I would share some photographs with you today!!

Doune Castle - Stirling

I was in heaven. I had Sam Heughan chatting away in my ear (the audio guide), explaining how Doune Castle was turned into Castle Leoch. What more could a girl want?!

 Mrs. Fitz's Kitchen

If you have limited time in Scotland and want to go to just one Outlander location, then go here. Castle Doune, not only has the most incredible history, but there is something special about this place ~ although that might have been down to Jamie Fraser ~ I mean Sam Heughan ~ giving me my very own personal guided tour...hey, a girl can dream can't she?

Hopetoun House – Edinburgh

Hopetoun House was used as a location for the Duke of Sandringham's house, and boy, was it impressive. The tour guide brought the history of the house to life, and it is beautiful. Well worth a visit, and the views from the roof are amazing, or so I am told, I had my eyes closed for most of it  ~ if you are a regular reader then you will know I am terrified of heights!


Blackness Castle – Edinburgh

Blackness Castle was used on location as Fort William Prison, and I can see why. Blackness Castle is incredibly atmospheric. It was a little bit damp when we went, which did make it a little bit slippery underfoot, but definitely worth a look.

Troon Beach – Ayrshire

Can you remember that scene where Jamie and Clare are forced to flee Scotland and say goodbye to their friends on the beach? Troon Beach was where this scene was filmed. This was a disappointing one for me because as soon as we pulled into the car park the heavens opened. Needless to say, we didn't stay there long, because it was really cold and wet ~ but at least I can say I have been! Unfortunately I don't have any photographs to share with you. Sorry about that!

Preston Mill –Edinburgh 

Jamie found his way home to Lallybroch, and he had to make repairs to the watermill.

I have been to that mill!! YAY!

You have to take the guided tour when you look around the mill, as it is an actual working mill, which I think is incredible.  I learnt so much about watermills, and the tour guide was fabulous. Thumbs Up for this one!
