Filming location – season 1, 2 & 3
Dating from the 17th century, Hopetoun House near South Queensferry is a beautiful stately home surrounded by a vast, 6,500 acre estate.
Various parts of the house and grounds have played roles in Outlander:
- The Duke of Sandringham’s stately home (S1)
- The spare room in Jamie and Claire's Paris apartment (S2)
- The Hawkins Estate (S2)
- The backdrop for Parisian streets (S2)
- The stables at Helwater and the exterior of Ellesmere (S3)
Another key filming location on the Hopetoun Estate is Midhope Castle, which features as the exterior of Jamie’s beloved Lallybroch.
While no filming took place inside the castle (it's derelict inside) the exterior is instantly recognisable. Please note, Midhope is located on a private part of the Hopetoun Estate and access is restricted. If you want to visit, you need to purchase a vehicle permit from the nearby Hopetoun Farm Shop.
