Falkland is transformed into Inverness for Outlander

Filming for the fifth season of the Outlander TV series is about to start in Scotland , One of Outlander’s first scenes was filmed in the picturesque town of Falkland, which stands in for Inverness in the 1940s . The show is based on American author Diana Gabaldon’s series of historical novels, which sees nurse Claire Beauchamp Randell mysteriously swept back from 1945 to 1743 Highland Scotland  .  Falkland features some familiar sights from the TV series , including  Mrs Baird’s Guesthouses (actually the Covenanter Hotel), the Bruce Fountain where Claire comes across the ghost of Jamie, and the building that doubles as Farrell’s Hardware and Furniture Store. Most of the filming will take place in Scotland,  according to the show's executive producer Ron Moore .  Scotland’s stunning landscape, with its rolling hills, rugged mountains, picturesque towns and villages, castles and sprawling beaches has provided the perfect backdrop for the world of cinema. The show is based on American author Diana Gabaldon’s series of historical novels, which sees nurse Claire Beauchamp Randell mysteriously swept back from 1945 to 1743 Highland Scotland where rebellion and romance are afoot.  Executive Producer Ron Moore has commented on Scotland : “The landscape itself is a character in the show. There’s a particular quality to the light in Scotland, even to the grass and the trees.”  Outlander season 2 is expected to premiere sometime in the first half of 2016

Streets will be shut off and businesses closed as Falkland welcomes back the cast and crew of Outlander. Season four of the show will feature the village as a stand-in for Inverness in decades gone by, with filming due to begin on Thursday and last until Friday. Outlander tours to Falkland can be booked online or… Continue reading Falkland is transformed into Inverness for Outlander
