 Outlander | Season 3 Official Trailer |STARZ

Last September I found myself in Scotland and I could not but help checking out some of the fabulous Historical sites where Outlander was filmed, and I thought I would share some photographs with you today!!

Doune Castle Stirling

I was in heaven. I had Sam Heughan chatting away in my ear (the audio guide), explaining how Doune Castle was turned into Castle Leoch. What more could a girl want?!

If you have limited time in Scotland and want to go to just one Outlander location, then go here. Castle Doune, not only has the most incredible history, but there is something special about this place ~ although that might have been down to Jamie Fraser ~ I mean Sam Heughan ~ giving me my very own personal guided tour...hey, a girl can dream can't she?

Preston Mill –Edinburgh

Jamie found his way home to Lallybroch, and he had to make repairs to the watermill.

I loved this mill. You have to take the guided tour when you look around the mill, as it is an actual working mill, which I think is incredible.  I learnt so much about watermills, and the tour guide was fabulous.

Blackness Castle – Edinburgh

I can see why Blackness Castle was used on location as Fort William Prison. It is incredibly atmospheric.

Hopetoun House – Edinburgh

Outlander fans will recognise Hopetoun House as the home of the Duke of Sandringham's, and boy, was it impressive. The tour guide brought the history of the house to life, and it is beautiful. Well worth a visit, and the views from the roof are amazing.

If you fancy going back even further in time then why not check out
