Sam Heughan Starring In Outlander. Experience Jamie Fraser’s Drama In The Highlands! What To Visit?

Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) in Lallybroch (Castle Leod, Scotland)

Everybody wants to visit The Highlands this summer 2015 thanks to Outlander TV show. Would you like to smell the same atmosphere as Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe)? Here, some recommended places to visit.

Inverness is a beautiful place regarded as the capital of the Highlands of Scotland. Inverness Castle looking over the River Ness is amazing and you can think about Claire’s time travel. But be careful! Inverness is magic!

Beauly Priory (where Claire met the prophetess). Beauly Priory was founded around 1230 by monks of the Valliscaulian order, who settled beside the Beauly River. The ruins today are still extensive and are one of the main visitor attractions in Inverness-shire.

Culloden Battlefield. Site of bloody last battle of Jacobite Rising, you can find a visitor center and interactive exhibitions. Jamie Fraser was there!

Address: Culloden Moor, Inverness, Culloden IV2 5EU, United Kingdom.



Glenfinnan is a village in Lochaber area of the Highlands of Scotland, in Inverness-shire. In 1745 the Jacobite Rising began here when Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie) raised his standard on the shores of Loch Shiel. Maybe we’ll see this event in Outlander season 2! Anyway, hundreds of Jacobite enthusiasts gather at the tower each year on 19 August to remember the Rising of ’45.

The bronze age Clava Cairns and stone circles. Think about Craigh na Dun! The Clava cairn is a type of Bronze Age circular chamber tomb cairn. There are about 50 cairns of this type in an area round about Inverness.

Address: Inverness IV2 5EU, United Kingdom.

Loch nan Uamh. The Prince’s Cairn marks the traditional spot from where Prince Charles Edward Stuart embarked for France from Scotland on 20 September 1746 following the failure of the Jacobite rising of 1745.

And of course, visit Castle Leod, the location served as Lallybroch, Jamie Fraser’s home. It is located near Strathpeffer in the east of Ross-shire in the Scottish Highlands.

    God bless Scotland and He will give once again to Scotland her independence from London, and he will choose amongst the rightfull heirs of the Scottish throne who should be the Legitimate King or Queen.

    Before the release of the Starz series, Outlander, a friend recommended that I read the books but I am not a sci-fi fan and when she said they involved time travel, I passed. Then I was offered a special on Starz and accepted, so I decided to check out the new series, Outlander. Life changing experience. I have watched every episode as many times as they were repeated, I bought and read the entire 8 book series ( doing it for the third time right now), have acquired a dozen books on Scottish history, 29 CD’s by a Scottish folk duo called The Corries who sing a lot of Jacobite battle songs, a set of tapes on learning Gaelic, and in October I take my first trip to Scotland where I will have a three day tour of the places where the series was filmed as well as Culloden, Killicrankie, Prestonpans battlefields, Inverness and Edinburgh. I guess it would be safe to say that Diana Gabaldon, Ron Moore and the excellent cast of the TV series have had a profound effect on me. Thank you.
