  1. Fabulous video. Thanks for putting it together. Carlisle Castle was also used for Wentworth Prison, when Jamie is about to be hung and Black Jack arrived in time to stop the execution.

  2. Doon Castle not only doubles as Castle Leoch in Outlander but is also Winterfel Castle in Game of Thrones.
    Did you mention where the the Versille party scenes from season 2 were filmed?

  3. This video is exceptionally well presented and produced. Such a pity that it's number of views does not do credit to the quality. I have never watched Outlander but enjoyed this video. Not least, as my family are the last remaining members of the Scottish Royal Family and direct descendants of King Robert the Bruce. Rannoch, in particular, was one of our ancients seats in Scotland.
