Explore Outlander filming locations in and nearby West Lothian

See where Outlander stars, Sam Heughan (Jamie) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire), shot their scenes at Outlander filming locations in and nearby West Lothian.

Beecraigs Country Park

The park doubled as the North Carolina wilderness which Jamie and Claire rode through after leaving River Run. They got separated in the forest during a thunderstorm and Claire was haunted by the ghost of Otter-Tooth. Have fun exploring the play area or stay for longer at the caravan and camping site.

Beecraigs Country Park

Wide range of activities within 370 hectares (913 acres), near historic Linlithgow. Open throughout the year, free entry.

Linlithgow Palace

The entrance and corridors of this magnificent ruined palace were used as Wentworth Prison where Jamie was imprisoned. Wentworth Prison was the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots and was once the royal residence of the Stewart kings and queens. This wonderful 15th century site, with its elegant courtyard, oozes charm and glamour.

*CLOSED* Linlithgow Palace

This royal pleasure palace was the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots.

Muiravonside Country Park

Located in neighbouring Falkirk, the park was a backdrop to the dramatic Battle of Prestonpans and doubled as a British encampment and the English countryside.

Blackness Castle

This 15th century fortress provided the setting for the Fort William headquarters of Black Jack Randall, and was the setting of the heart-wrenching scene of Jamie’s incarceration.
