Linlithgow Palace – Wentworth Prison


Wentworth Prison Scotland in Outlander is actually Linlithgow Palace Scotland , visit Wentworth Prison on our Outlander tours, phone +447305294773

This is Linlithgow Palace , the royal palace and birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots which became the backdrop for some of the most harrowing scenes of the show.
Depicted as Wentworth Prison, the prison corridors and entrance were used in episode 15 of the first series when Jamie Fraser was brutally incarcerated by his adversary, Black Jack Randall.
Built in the 1400s and 1500s by the Stewart kings of Scotland , the now-ruined palace is set among the spectacular surrounds of Linlithgow Loch and Peel. Tunnels under Linlithgow Palace were used for filming Wentworth Prison Scotland

2  Midhope Castle – Lallybroch


Lallybroch is the ancestral home of Jamie Fraser , filmed at Midhope Castle .

 


Scenes were shot at Midhope Castle near the Hopetoun Estate near South Queensferry.
Midhope was built in the 15th Century and was built by John Martyne, laird of Medhope. 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.

Midhope Castle is the external location for fictional Lallybroch, the family home of character Jamie Fraser , and it is located on the Hopetoun Estate .  Midhope Castle dates back to the 15th Century and although the exterior is relatively intact the castle is derelict inside. Midhope Castle tours can be booked on

3  Blackness Castle – Fort William army headquarters

 

One of Scotland’s most impressive strongholds, Blackness Castle near Linlithgow was used as the Fort William headquarters of Black Jack Randall.
The 15th-century ex-artillery fortress overlooks the Firth of Forth and is known as “the ship that never sailed” due to its unusual shape.
It was built in the 15th century by one of Scotland’s most powerful families, the Crichtons.
