In recent years Scotland has proven a popular location for lots of different films and TV series, most notably Outlander. Some of Outlander’s film locations are very close to us here at Gartmore House – not more than half an hour away by car! Visit Scotland has even created an interactive Outlander map so you can find your way around this ‘living film set’!
The Outlander locations closest to Gartmore are as follows:
- Loch Katrine (season 2) – this pretty loch is just a 25 mins drive away. You can cruise on the water, hire a bike or take a walk. There are a couple of good cafes where you can relax and enjoy the views. Day trips to Loch Katrine are included on all craft & activity holidays of 5 nights or more.
- Deanston Distillery (season 2) – one of our favourite local whisky distilleries, it’s just a 30 mins drive away.
- Doune Castle (season 1) – just 30 mins away, Doune Castle turns into the fictional Castle Leoch – 18th century home to Colum MacKenzie and his clan. It also features in the 20th century episode when Claire and Frank visit the ruined castle on a day trip. Doune Castle is also used in Game of Thrones as ‘Winterfell’.
The interactive map features an incredible 36 Scottish Outlander film locations! You can even download a FREE OUTLANDER FILM LOCATIONS MAP from Visit Scotland’s website.
