Craigh na Dun
The mystical and enchanting spot where Claire and Frank first come across the standing stones that soon after were to propel Claire back in time. They have been an ever-present since, including in Season 4 . No standing stones actually exist here but I think they are based on a combination of Clava Cairns and Callanish , both of which are outstanding Scottish tourist sites. Even without the presence of the colossal pillars, this spot in Perthshire is a fantastic selection as Craigh na Dun.

“Last year the Outlander crew filmed a graveyard scene with Jamie ( Sam Heughan ) about a mile from where I live in Polmont .
About five years ago I drove into the village of Culross in Fife . The place was full of men and women in Highland dress heading for what I assumed were the catering tents . I only found out later they were filming Outlander in Culross . “
