Outlander Locations around Inverness
So, where was Outlander filmed? Gabaldon set the time-traveller series in 18th century Scotland during the Jacobite Risings. Therefore, lots of ancient and beautiful places in Scotland inspired the series and some were used as filming locations. You can visit many of them on a tour from Inverness.
Highlights on the Outlander Tours include Clava Cairns near Inverness. This exceptionally well-preserved burial site with cairns and standing stones was built around four thousand years ago. Outlander fans might spot a split stone, like the one which sent main character Claire Randall tumbling through time. Then there’s Castle Leod by Strathpeffer, a Mackenzie stronghold and the inspiration behind Castle Leoch. Not forgetting Loch Garve, home of the mythical water kelpie.
