Outlander locations in Perthshire
Standing Stones at Craig Na Dun
Craig Na Dun is a real hill in Rannoch, however, the stones are not real. Each year we know when filming is starting as the stone appear at the hill.
Around the hill you can find yourself traveling along roads that will seem familiar to Outlander viewer from the scenes when Claire arrives back in 1948 in season 2 and when Brianna has travelled through the stones in season 4.
The woods around this loch, to the west of Pitlochry, stood in for America. This was used as the locationof the Mohawk village where Roger is rescued and Young Ian stays at the end of Season 4.
Some of the trees in Faskally Woods were planted in the late 1800's by plant hunters who had brought them back from America so the location does look plausable.
These woods, near to Dunkeld, were used in both season 4 and 5 as parts of America, seen during several of Claire and Jamies travels through woodland in the Carolinas. The location used for Frazer's Ridge is proably in this area.
Battle of Killiecrankie
If the Outlander series has inspired an interest in history each year a festival and battle re enactment by the Soldiers of Killiecrankie is held at the site of the Battle of Killiecrankie. This battle took place in 1689, so it was more than 55 years before the battle of Culloden, but it was the same two sides fighting. Viewer will recognise the redcoats and muskets of the English soldiers.
