Outlander | Scotland Film Locations Season 2


With season 4 of the award winning tv series Outlander about to hit 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 2 of Outlander- so note that there may be spoilers if you haven’t watched all of season 2 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

Glasgow Cathedral

Glasgow Cathedral is one of only a few Medieval churches in Scotland dating from the late 12th Century, it has stunning Gothic architecture, which allegedly is where the patron saint of Glasgow, St Mungo built his church. On a low hill behind the Cathedral you will find one of the most striking cemeteries, iand remains one of the most significant cemeteries in Europe, the Glasgow Necropolis. The crypt inside the Cathedral was used as L'Hopital des Anges in season 2 of Outlander, where Claire helped as a nurse, and ended up being a patient herself, in one of the most harrowing of all Outlander storylines- when she gave birth to her stillborn baby girl and almost died herself.
