Outlander | Scotland Film Locations Season 3


With season 4 of the award winning tv series Outlander hitting our screens, we thought that there was never a better time than now to release posts covering all of Outlander’s top Scottish Filming Locations.

This post covers all the top filming locations from season 3 of Outlander- so note that there may be spoilers if you haven’t watched all of season 3 yet, as we will detail where to find each location and what exactly was filmed there.

Outlander tv series is inspired by the books written by Diana Gabaldon. Outlander is set in the 20th century after World War 2 when nurse Claire and her husband Frank go on their second honeymoon to Scotland. Claire however, falls through time though and lands in the 18th century during the time of Jacobite’s and Culloden. The story of Claire and her highlander Jamie Fraser takes them all over the world, but most of the scenes are set on location in Scotland.

OUTLANDER GLASGOW

University of Glasgow

When we see Frank, Claire and Brianna at the famous US institution of Harvard, this is actually filmed at the University of Glasgow, the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world. The gorgeous and stunning architecture is that of the Cloisters at the University of Glasgow.

Kelvingrove Park

The US city of Boston was transported to Glasgow in season three when Kelvingrove Park was used to replicate the Boston Park where Claire is regularly seen going for walks, we see her pushing baby Brianna’s pram and later walking past a Scottish Piper.

OUTLANDER EDINBURGH

Hopetoun House

Already having been featured in season 1 as the Duke of Sandringham’s residence, and as Parisian streets and bedrooms in the Fraser’s Parisian apartment in season 2, this stately home is used again in season 3, the stables and area where the streets of Paris were filmed now represent the stables at Helswater, where Jamie has been taken after his release from Ardsmuir Prison. Here he is blackmailed into relations with heiress Geneva, whom he has a son, Willie. (Image of Jamie and Willie provided purely for cuteness purposes as the inside of stables may have been on set) The main, front entrance of Hopetoun is used for the first time as the exterior of Ellesmere where we see Geneva and family.

Price: £10.50 for House and Grounds / £4.75 Grounds only

In any future seasons? Yes, in season 1 and 2

Midhope Castle

Midhope Castle is a 16th century tower house. You can visit the outside of this castle, although the inside is now derelict and unsafe to enter. Midhope is better known as Lallybroch, or Broch Tuarach in Outlander- as Jamie Frasers ancestral home. In season 3 we find that (thank the lord) Jamie has survived Culloden, but the English are now searching for him, so as an outlaw he lives in a cave near to Lallybroch. Later in the season we see Lallybroch again, this time with Jamie’s second wife and family, as well as Claire and Jenny reuniting. Claire also visits Lallybroch in the 1960's.

Price: £10 for small car permit and £40 for large car/ motor home
