Where is Outlander filmed?

Most of Outlander was filmed in Scotland, using historic locations for outdoor shoots such as Kinloch Rannoch and Doune Castle.

Lots of studio shooting took place in Wardpark Studios near Glasgow, but the series also makes use of many important places in the country’s history for locations in the show, including Midhope Castle, Linlithgow Palace, and more.

This is great because Scotland has received a boost in tourism with many viewers becoming interested in the real locations. Wardpark Studios is also devoted to Outlander and has created over 100 production jobs in the area.

The story starts with Kinloch Rannoch, which was used for the Craigh na Dun site — the most iconic Outlander location. The stone circle that first sent Claire back to 1743 in the series took inspiration from the Callanish Stone Circle on the Isle of Lewis. The hill where the stones are in the show is located near Kinloch Rannoch.
