  Is James Fraser based on a real person ? No, James Fraser is not based on a real person , although there is a rumour that he was inspired by an episode of Docto rWho featuring a Highlander called Jamie . Left to Jamie by his parents, Brian and Ellen, Lallybroch is also home to Jamie’s sister, Jenny, her husband Ian Murray and their children.  Lallybroch first appears in a flashback scene during the second episode of season 1, when Jamie attempts to rescue Jenny from the Redcoats, only to end up being whipped and carried off to Fort William. Later in episode 12, Jamie returns with Claire where, after an initially unpleasant exchange with Jenny (mainly because Jamie calls her son a bastard, and partly because Claire is English) they settle in for a few episodes, until dealings with ‘The Watch’ causes them to leave. On our Outlander tours you can find out more about Scottish art and artist Jack Vettriano on Photogold prints.
