Check out our Craigh na Dun standing stones tour

Ocracoke is a small island off the coast of North Carolina . Located on the island is the northernmost portal in the Bermuda Triangle group of time portals. The exact location of the portal is marked by four standing stones.

Our featured picture shows Craigh na Dun with the standing stones there ready for filming . There are permanent stones at Clava Cairns near Culloden .

Historically, the island of Ocracoke was used as fishing and hunting ground by the local Indian population, but it was never permanently settled. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the island was intermittently considered a pirate haven. By the mid-18th century, it had been sparsely settled by colonists.

Outlander travel through the stones

The question now for every real Outlander fan is where did they actually film this scene ? All of Outlander has been filmed in Scotland . We know about the Craigh na Dun standing stones at Kinloch Rannoch , but what about the Ocracoke standing stones ?

Craigh na Dun standing stones – Outlander time travel

Finding the exact spot of Craigh na Dun is in the countryside and the site of filming is at Kinnloch Rannoch in Perthshire. On the south side of the Dunalastair Reservoir in Tay Forest Park under the gaze of the spectacular Schiehallion mountain, this is scenic Highlands at its best. You will recognise the mound from the roadside and it’s just a short walk out to the site. Kinnloch Rannoch was used for Outlander travel through the stones in numerous other scenes , mainly because it’s one of the most remote and beautiful areas in the country.

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 four . 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 with stunning views of the Perthshire countryside.

Craigh na Dun standing stones tour

1 . Lallybroch – Midhope Castle

The first location on this tour is Lallybroch – Midhope Castle, ancestral home of Jamie Fraser . Outlander scenes were shot at Midhope Castle on the fringes of the Hopetoun Estate near South Queensferry.

The interior ofMidhope is inaccessible .

Midhope Castle, a 16th-century tower house, is used as Lallybroch(also known as Broch Tuarach) in Outlander. 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 is a crucial part of Jamie Fraser’s life in Outlander . In Outlander Jamie calls Claire Sassenach as a term of affection .
