Outlander Fans Flock to Visit the Real Scotland

With viewing figures of 1.402 million it is no wonder that Outlander is so popular. 

Entering into its fourth series to be aired in September 18 filming is starting soon at a location very near to the award winning Mains of Taymouth Country Estate & Golf Course. 

Fans of the show visit where many of the scenes were filmed and we are lucky enough to be right on their door step!

When Outlander author Diana Gabaldon dreamt up the idea I’m sure she never envisaged the success and the massive boost to Scottish tourism it would bring.

Why not don that period clothing and take to the hills and discover Outlander country for yourselves?

Rannoch Moor has been described as "the largest abstract painting the world" - a walk through this unique landscape of grass, heather, peat, water and mountains is an unforgettable experience and is no wonder that Sam Heughan the lead actor has been quoted as saying Kinloch Rannoch was his favourite location.

The Majestic splendour of Doune Castle near Stirling is featured in Season 1 of Outlander. It plays a leading role as the fictional Castle Leoch which is home to the Mackenzie clan. It also featured in the 20th century episode where Claire and Frank were visiting the castle ruins.It was built as the home of Regent Albany, ‘Scotland’s uncrowned king’.  

Why not walk in the footsteps of rulers both real and fictional. Doune Castle is a popular filming location for not only Outlander but also Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Game of Thrones.

Whatever your plan you can rest assured you will return back to Mains of Taymouth Country Estate and enjoy our wonderful accommodation and surroundings.
