Hollywood hit Highland Perthshire this week! Cast and crews from popular TV show ‘Outlander’ were spotted filming scenes for series 5 at The Hermitage in Dunkeld.
It’s not the first time Perthshire has provided a backdrop for the show either. With its mystical scenery and magical landscapes it is the perfect setting for the time-travelling fantasy and has featured heavily throughout the series.
To help you retrace Claire and Jamie’s steps around Perthshire, we have listed all the other filming locations below. So now you can embark on your own Outlander adventure and experience some of the great scenery from the show!
Possibly the most iconic Outlander filming location. Kinloch Rannoch is the site of Craigh na Dun. Home to the standing stones that send Claire off on her journey through time. Kinloch Rannoch is also one for the Harry Potter fans – the train station and Rannoch Moor were both used as locations for filming.
Home to the Enchanted Forest, Faskally Woods was used as the home for native Americans in season 4.
Kinclaven Bluebell Woods
Kinclaven Bluebell Woods is the site of the ‘witness trees’ from season 4. Standing alone, the two beech trees used for filming are instantly recognisable as the ‘witness trees’. Visit during April-May and you’ll be treated to a sea of colour as the bluebells will be in bloom.
Drummond Castle Gardens
The ornate formal gardens of Drummond Castle were used as the filming location for the Palace of Versailles in season 2.
Featured in season 2, this malt whisky distillery was the setting for Jamie’s cousin’s warehouse in France.
Land at Abercairny Estate was used to create a colonial plantation in season 4. Rather than use a pre-existing building, the crew built the facade of a colonial home for filming.
This atmospheric church was used in Season 1 for the scene of the infamous witch trial.
Brae House B&B is within driving distance to the Outlander filming locations listed above. To book accommodation for your Outlander tour – please visit our reservations page here.
