We see this iconic location several times. Our introduction to Lallybroch comes in a flashback scene during the second episode of season one , when Jamie attempts to rescue Jenny from the Redcoats, only to end up being whipped and carried off to Fort William. Later in episode twelve , Jamie returns with Claire to take his place and laird of Lallybroch . Then, in season 2 we see Claire and Jamie return home after their time on France.

In season three we find out that the story of Lallybroch is not yet finished. After Culloden, Jamie is returned home, where he hides from the British before eventually surrendering to the army.

Midhope Castle is on the Hopetoun estate. It is every bit as impressive as Lallybroch, with the familiar approach and entrance to the building.

If you’re looking for a glimpse of the ancestral home of Jamie Fraser you won’t find the real Lallybroch deep in the Highlands.
Scenes were shot at Midhope Castle on the fringes of the Hopetoun Estate near South Queensferry.
Midhope was built in the 15th Century  by John Martyne, laird of Midhope. It was rebuilt in the mid 1600s and remains much the same today.
Visitors are asked to admire Midhope from a distance as the interior remains largely derelict.

Outlander star Sam Heughan – Jamie Fraser in Outlander – has been awarded an honorary degree from the University of Glasgow .

His doctorate is in honour of the actor’s artistic success, as well as his charity work.
It is, however, a return to home turf for Heughan, who grew up there before moving to Edinburgh aged 12. The Outlander fan favourite graduated from Glasgow’s Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama – RSAMD, now the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland – in 2003.

Outlander the musical ?

DIANA Gabaldon revealed she was once in talks about an Outlander musical – and would one day like to see it hit the stage.

The author was approached by Aberdeen playwright Mike Gibb about making a live version of her books.

She says: “Mike came to me in 2009 as he had it in mind to do an Outlander musical. Some of the songs were really very good. But at that point my agent did the deal with Sony which took two years of negotiations.

“So we had to suspend the musical at that point. I retained my musical drama rights to the books, but there’s a hold-back period in the contract for several years.”

She adds: “But we are approaching that point again where we can consider doing a musical, so we will look around at that then and see where we are.”

However, some of Diana’s followers go to painful lengths to show their devotion.

She said: “I’ve been asked to sign people’s arms with a Sharpie, which they then go and have tattooed on their skin.

“One woman waited for hours to be in line at a book signing. She then took off her shoe and her stocking to show me the tattoo on her foot.

“It was of the running stag brooch that was on the front cover of my book The Fiery Cross on the US and Canadian editions.

“I was like, ‘Well that looks painful.’ She then gave me a Polaroid photo of her foot as a memento.”

And other followers have left her feeling flushed with success.

She adds: “Someone asked me a question online about the books and it was going to be quite a complicated answer.

“I replied, ‘I will be happy to answer that later as right now I only have two brain cells left and one of those is trying to remember to buy toilet paper.’

“A few days later a big FedEx truck pulls up next to my house and decants 200 rolls of toilet paper from all around the world.

“There was Korean, Japanese, Australian and a lot from the US as well. The Korean toilet paper was pretty cute as it had images of bees on it.”

Then there are the mickey-takes, with Diana left tickled by Burnistoun’s Outlander sketch which featured Jamie McShagger from The Clan McShagger on the new BBC Scotland channel last month.

She laughed: “That was very funny but I’ve seen a lot of parodies of Outlander now. Fans film their own ones too.”

But her followers will be delighted to know that after she completes her 10-part main series she plans to keep Outlander going with a string of potential spin-offs and a prequel.

She joked: “I will die sooner or later, although I think I can make it through to the tenth book.

“But the Outlander effect is now totally outwith my control.

Breaking news – Sam Heughan auditioned for James Bond

If you’ve seen the red-haired Sam Heughan on Amazon’s Outlander, then you’ll know that he’s the ultimate action man. It’s perhaps not that surprising then, that he Sam Heughan auditioned for James Bond. He’s been thrust back in time in Outlander and forced into the pressure zone on Doctors, so did the Bond producers miss a trick in opting for Daniel Craig?

“I did audition for Bond a long time ago when they were redoing it with Daniel Craig when he was Bond 21,” Heughan confessed on U.S. show Live With Kelly and Ryan, the Radio Times reports. His appearance was ahead of the fourth season of Outlander, which sees Heughan playing Jamie Fraser, an 18th century Scottish warrior who steals the heart of Claire (played by Catriona Balfe), as well as just about everyone watching at home. So, maybe count your blessings. If Heughan had landed the Die Another Day role, he might not have become the sexy Scottish warrior you thirst over today.

It’s not just the role of James Bond that Heughan’s had bad luck with. As he told Vulture back in 2014, he tried auditioning for Game of Thrones a whopping seven times before settling into his Scottish warrior role. “I auditioned for Renly, Loras,some of the members of the Night’s Watch. And I’d always get so close! I’d be like, ‘Guys, just give me a sword!'” While he didn’t get Bond’s gun or martini, nor Jon Snow’s Longclaw sword, he did finally get a sword when he joined Outlander.

He revealed in the same interview that he did feel an affinity to Jamie Fraser, as he gushed:

“Something about this one just felt right. This part felt different. I knew this character. I felt a connection with him. I knew where he had come from.”

Even though I’m unable to think of an actor better suited to the role of Fraser (Gerard Butler, maybe?), the pundits — and the actor himself — aren’t letting go of the idea that Heughan could be the next Bond. “I’ve always wanted to play James Bond. It’s a part of every British actor’s legacy,” he told the Sunday Post back in July.

As the Sunday Post also reported, Heughan’s odds to play 007 were once a beefy 50/1, but those were slashed when he played a spoof spy role alongside Mila Kunis in The Spy Who Dumped Me, which was released in the UK back in July. “Are you really in the running for James Bond? Please say yes,” he was asked by a fan during a Facebook Live interview back in July, as The Scottish Sun reported. “Well if you would like me to, of course I will. I feel like I’ve got the tuxedo and I’ve got the car from this movie so I could just take them with me,” he reportedly answered, referring to his role in The Spy Who Dumped Me. We all know about Bond’s deep Scottish roots, so it wouldn’t be any surprise if Jamie becomes James ( Bond , James Bond )

Appeal started for century-old fishing boat that played a star role in Outlander

An appeal has been launched to complete the restoration of a unique century-old fishing boat that played a star role in time-shift drama Outlander.

Reaper – Outlander tours Scotland

Reaper is the last surviving Scottish herring lugger, or Fifie, and one of the few National Historic Ships fleet that has been kept in a seagoing condition. Reaper, with its distinctive red sail, is emblematic of the east coast herring industry. Built around 1901-03, the 70ft vessel has been the flagship of the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Fife for more than 40 years. The vessel has itself served as a floating museum, touring more than 50 ports across the UK and hosting more than 180,000 visitors.

But despite a series of repairs and refits over the years, major work has been required to keep Reaper seaworthy and its condition has been found to be worse than anticipated. And despite a £500,000 grant from the Scottish Government last year, an extra £25,000 is required to finish the job at the Babcock yard in Rosyth that started last November. It is hoped this will be completed next June so Reaper can make a triumphant return home to mark the Anstruther museum’s 50th birthday by leading a flotilla of historic boats down the Forth.

Museum director of operations Ian Goodyear said: “Reaper is hugely significant boat for the nation. In 2015, it was realised the boat required an extensive renovation to preserve it for the next 30 years and continue its outreach programme. Due to the nature of the vessel, it now requires even more work than was first surveyed and further funds are required to complete phase one.” Work will include renewing the hull timbers and replacing those on the deck, using larch from the same north-east forest whose wood was used in its construction at Sandhaven, near Fraserburgh.

Reaper, with its distinctive red sail, played a key role in Outlander as the boat used by central characters Claire and Jamie to escape to France. Chris Oliver, a retired surgeon who has become a volunteer at the museum’s boatyard that will complete phase two, said: “Reaper is sorely missed and we are always asked when it is coming back. “These historic boats were such an important part of the local fishing communities.” Phase two will include painting and fitting out a new cabin. Some 10-20 per cent of the original boat will be retained.

Outlander series 4 trailer

The full trailer for Outlander season 4 is here. Starring Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe as star-crossed lovers, Jamie and Claire, the historical time travel series is based on Diana Gabaldon’s series of novels of the same name. Debuting in 2014, the show has slowly built its own fan community who are passionate about what comes next for the couple. After nine months since its third season wrapped up, the rollout of this brand new look is proof that Droughtlander is nearly over and loyal viewers cannot be more thrilled.

Season 4 will mine narrative inspiration from Gabaldon’s fourth book titled Drums of Autumn which follows Jamie and Claire to the American colonies. It can be remembered that season 3 ended with the two washed up in Georgia after surviving the shipwreck.  Initially hoping that they’ll be able to build a better life in their new location, the couple will settle at River Run, the home of Jamie’s Aunt Jocasta (Marie Doyle Kennedy). Unfortunately, little did they know that fresh danger awaits them, and with no trusted ally, they find themselves having no one to rely on but each other.

Posted on Starz’s official YouTube account is the official trailer for Outlander season 4. It follows the release of a first-look teaser back in July and includes several of the scenes that were previously shown, as well as never-before-seen sequences from the upcoming outing. However, the biggest takeaway from the clip is Bree, played by Sophie Skelton (who is still in the 1900s and getting closer to Roger, played by Richard Rankin), in Craigh na Dun getting ready to travel back in time. Watch the full video above.

Since the emotional season 2 finale where Jamie had to send a pregnant Claire to her own timeline before the Battle of Culloden began, fans have been eagerly waiting for him to meet his daughter. Despite having not met, Jamie knows what Bree looks like thanks to the photos Claire brought with her when she went back in time to look for her Scottish lover. Readers of Gabaldon’s books know how significant it is in the overall story (not to mention emotional) when the two finally see each other face-to-face. Luckily, fans won’t have to wait for too long since it’s confirmed that the much-anticipated meeting will take place sometime in the upcoming outing. It’ll be curious to know, however, if Starz has any plans of changing elements of their encounter. For the most part, the people behind the series have been doing a good job in closely following the books, which is greatly appreciated by those who were fans of the novels first.

Whether Jamie and Brianna meet early or late in the season, fans won’t have to worry that there won’t be enough time to explore their eventual relationship. Outlander scored another two season-renewal (12 episodes each) back in May which means that at least The Fiery Cross and A Breath of Snow and Ashes will be translated to the small screen.
