Three Outlander castles tour , Lallybroch , Palace of Versailles , Castle Leoch

Description

Three ancient Outlander castles feature in this tour – Lallybroch ( Midhope castle ) , Palace of Versailles ( Drummond Castle and Gardens) and Castle Leoch ( Doune Castle )

1 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 enjoy Midhope from the outside as the interior is inaccessible . In Outlander Jamie calls Claire Sassenach as a term of affection .

Midhope Castle, a 15th 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.

2 Palace of Versailles ( Drummond Castle and Gardens)

Drummond Castle and Gardens – the grounds, which date back to 1630, are considered “the best example of formal terraced gardens in Scotland”. The castle was used as the Palace of Versailles in an episode of TV drama Outlander. Jamie and Claire meet Black Jack Randall at a garden party and Jamie challenges Black Jack to a duel .

Drummond Castle Gardens, which are protected as a category A listed building — in contrast to the B listed castle – attract thousands of visitors per year, and are included on the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland.The gardens — complete with peacocks — feature ancient yew hedges and the remaining beech tree planted by Queen Victoria in 1842.But the grounds — which also featured in 1995 feature film Rob Roy, starring Liam Neeson — have now seen a huge boost in tourist numbers thanks to the so-called “Outlander effect”.
