Fans of the popular Starz series “Outlander” had a unique experience at Museum of the Albemarle on Saturday.
“Artifacts of Outlander,” a traveling exhibit that used “Outlander” as a backdrop, began at 10 a.m. and featured a bagpipe performance and discussion on Scottish Highland history by Tim MacLeod. In the museum lobby, fans took turns taking pictures with a lifesized cardboard cutout of one of the show’s main characters, Jamie MacKenzie Fraser.

MacLeod’s discussion included the Argyll Colony, a group of Highland Scots who settled in North Carolina in the Upper Cape Fear around 1739, and the American Revolutionary Battle of Moores Creek Bridge, in what is today Pender County.
By 1774 Highland Scots had settled in parts of North Carolina from the Cape Fear River Basin to as far west as Boone, MacLeod said. Many of them still spoke their native Gaelic and there was even a Gaelic language newspaper at the time.
“It was great. He was very knowledgable,” said Betsy Sherlock, following MacLeod’s discussion.
Sherlock is an Elizabeth City resident who along with her husband watch the “Outlander” series on the pay TV service Starz.
“I’m new to ‘Outlander,’” she said, with a bright smile. “We have just started the second season.”
The fourth season of “Outlander” debuted last year. At least two additional seasons are planned.
“Outlander” opens with focus on Claire Randall, a former World War II combat nurse who about six months after the war is swept back in time. She and her husband had been on a second honeymoon in the town of Inverness, Scotland, when she slips through time and winds up in 1743 Scotland. She is taken in by clan MacKenzie, who are Jacobites, Scottish highlanders who were staunch supporters of ousted King James II and his descendants, and were at odds with the English army. The highlanders see Claire as a foreigner, hence the title of the show: “Outlander.”
On display in the museum lobby were Scottish Highland artifacts from the 18th century. Sarah Hill, of Sunbury, said she had a work-related interest in Saturday’s exhibit.
“I work at the Dismal Swamp Welcome Center and of course the Dismal Swamp is featured in the ‘Outlander’ books,” she said.
The show is based on the book series written by American writer Diane Gabaldon.
“I have read all of the books,” said Tara Ferguson, of South Mills. “I am a huge ‘Outlander’ fan.”
Asked why she likes the series so much, she said: “The adventure!”
“It goes from Scotland to North Carolina to our backyard,” said Ferguson, who was accompanied by Lisa Rayman, of Chesapeake, Virginia. Rayman said she’s just getting familiar with “Outlander.”
“I’m a tag-along and I know nothing about ‘Outlander,’” she said, laughing. However, she was curious to learn more about the series.
“I am interested, just with the little bit she’s told me,” Rayman said, pointing to Ferguson.
In between his music, MacLeod, of the St. Andrews Legion Pipes and Drums, in Chester, Virginia, wove in a brief history of the songs themselves, plus a history of the evolution of the bagpipe as an instrument.
He later led the group of nearly 70 guests into the museum’s auditorium, where he continued his discussion. When MacLeod asked if their family lineage includes Scottish ancestors, a majority of the audience raised their hands that theirs does.
Museum of the Albemarle is exhibiting “Artifacts of Outlander” in partnership with Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum in Calvert County, Maryland. The exhibit will remain on display at MoA through March 27.

The property was owned by the Martin family in 1478, and they had a castle here, but passed to the Livingstones soon afterwards. James Lindsay, Lord Lindsay, had a ratification of 1592 for the lands of Midhope, with the tower and fortalice thereof. Midhope belonged to the Drummonds of Midhope, who were in possession during part of the 16th and 17th centuries, and Alexander Drummond of Midhope remodelled the tower in 1587 and his initials with those of his wife Marjorie Bruce are on a former lintel now above a gateway. Alexander Drummond of Midhope is on record in the 1640s, then Sir Robert Drummond of Midhope in 1647 and 1661.
On this tour we visit various locations used for filming the hit series Outlander. Based on the best selling novels by Diana Gabaldon, Outlander is filmed in a number of locations in castles and towns in central Scotland.
Lallybroch – Midhope Castle
The first location on this Outlander 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.
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 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. With Lallybroch being an important part of the Outlander story, much use is made of Midhope Castle.
Midhope Castle tours can be booked on toll free number 1-866-233-2644 or online .
This royal palace is the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots and it became the backdrop for some of the most harrowing scenes of the TV show Outlander .
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, the now-ruined palace is set among the spectacular surrounds of Linlithgow Loch and Peel.
Blackness Castle goes back to 1440 . The castle provides the setting for Fort William, as the original fort no longer exists.
The castle is long and narrow because of the shape of the rock on which it is situated and it is sometimes called ‘ the ship that never sailed ‘ . It guards the bay at Blackness and is only a few miles from Linlithgow Palace . The first castle was built in the middle of the 15th century by Sir George Crichton , Earl of Caithness , a member of one of the most powerful families in Scotland .
