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.

4 Culross Palace

Culross Palace was used in the early seasons of Outlander . The herb garden was used as Castle Leoch's garden .


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.
