Midhope Castle - Lallybroch

Get a glimpse of the ancestral home of Jamie Fraser at Midhope Castle .

Scenes were shot at Midhope Castle on the fringes of the Hopetoun Estate near South Queensferry.

Midhope was built in the 15th Century and was built by John Martyne, laird of Medhope. It was rebuilt in the mid 1600s and remains much the same today.

Visitors are asked to admire Midhope from a distance as the interior remains largely derelict. Outlander gifts are available , please ask your driver for details. Our unique range of Outlander gifts includes face masks , throw pillows , art prints, phone cases, stickers, framed prints , t-shirts and travel mugs. Outlander tour gift vouchers are also available

Midhope Castle is the external location for fictional Lallybroch, the family home of character Jamie Fraser , and it is located on the Hopetoun Estate . Midhope Castle dates back to the 15th Century and although the exterior is relatively intact the castle is derelict inside. In Outlander Jamie calls Claire Sassenach as a term of affection .

Doune Castle - Castle Leoch

Originally dating to the 13th Century, Doune Castle near Stirling plays Castle Leoch, home to Colum MacKenzie and his clan.

It also features in the 20th century episode when Claire and Frank Randall visit the castle on a day trip.

Once a Royal residence, Doune Castle was rebuilt by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany in the late 14th Century.


Doune has appeared several times on screen and was widely used in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It also represented the castle Winterfell in Game of Thrones.

Linlithgow Palace - Wentworth Prison

This royal palace and birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots became the backdrop for some of the most harrowing scenes of the show.

Depicted as Wentworth Prison, the prison corridors and entrance were used in episode 15 of the first series when Jamie Fraser was brutally incarcerated by his adversary, Black Jack Randall.

Built in the 1400s and 1500s, the now-ruined palace is set among the spectacular surrounds of Linlithgow Loch and Peel.

Blackness Castle - Fort William army headquarters

One of Scotland's most impressive strongholds, Blackness Castle near Linlithgow was used as the Fort William headquarters of Black Jack Randall.

The 15th-century ex-artillery fortress overlooks the Firth of Forth and is known as "the ship that never sailed" due to its unusual shape.

It was built in the 15th century by one of Scotland's most powerful families, the Crichtons.
