Caitriona Balfe who plays the lead in the show has also won many Best Actress awards thanks to her portrayal of Claire. With around 5.1 million viewers, many people are fascinated by the history of the Jacobite uprising in Scotland and the beautiful scenery of the show. Fortunately, people can experience Outlander for themselves by visiting some of the famous Outlander filming locations.
Kinloch Rannoch as Craigh na Dun
One of the most famous scenes of Outlander is set in the Kinloch Rannoch. It is the stone circles at Craigh na Dun (filmed at Kinloch Rannoch) that Claire goes back in time to 1743. The stone circle and local scenery are visited many times throughout the three series as she tries to return to her life.
The filming location is at Rannoch Moor which has breath-taking views of the loch and local countryside. However, there is no stone circle here as depicted in the TV series. For fans of the show, there is a chance to take a lovely walk through the woodland to the dramatic peaks of the moor. From here you can enjoy incredible views across the land, and understand where Outlander took inspiration from.
