This is a must for any Outlander fans. Visiting "Lallybroch" was a highlight of our trip. Unfortunately you can't reach it by public transportation, but you could get a taxi, or contact Anne or Emma at Mary's Meanders. Emma drove us out there (we met...More

The weather was beautiful and the castle was straight out of the Outlander TV series. I wish we have gone inside the castle, but understand that it might not be safe.

I absolutely fell in love with the huge old tree walking up to the arch. I loved the marriage lintel.The castle is derelict now but the out buildings are still there.

Was nice to see the home that was used for filming in the Outlander series, this was Lallybrooke, the Fraser clan home

This is one of the iconic sites from the Outlander TV series. That said, it's really just a building exterior. You can't go inside, as all the floors are gone. It is, however, a beautiful building.

A run of the mill converted tower house distinctive only because it featured in a TV serial. Hard to find, and the £10 access charge for a small car is a rip-off.

Another place visited after watching Outlander.Nice place to visit.Would recommend that if you have a dog you don't take take it out of car as it's rather close to a working farm
