Can you go inside Lallybroch ?

Unfortunately,  it is not possible to go inside Midhope Castle. Midhope Castle / Lallybroch is a derelict property and dangerous at the moment to enter. Although external scenes were shot at the castle , none of the filming of Lallybroch interior scenes in Outlander took place inside the castle itself. All the interior scenes for Lallybroch are shot inside a film studio – Wardpark Studios in Cumbernauld .

News update – July 2021

Good news for Outlander fans everywhere – plans have been announced for the restoration of the interior of Lallybroch , which is currently empty and derelict inside , to eventually include visitor accommodation. Outlander fans know it as Jamie Fraser’s home, Lallybroch, but soon Midhope Castle grounds will also home to a new whisky distilleryLallybroch tours can be booked online or by phone on 07305-294773 . Your driver/ guide is David , an experienced travel photographer . The Scotsman newspaper published one of David’s pictures of Lallybroch on their website in April .

Lallybroch is the holy grail for Outlander fans and thousands flock to the site every year on private tours , but they can only currently visit the outside of the castle . Visitors will be able to access the repaired parts of the castle, which are set to be revamped to include tasting, meeting and dining rooms

Initial work is expected to be completed in 2022 with further renovation and repairs to the castle (including accommodation) to take place once the business is established.

The castle lies on the same estate as Hopetoun House with the exterior used as a backdrop in series one and two of Outlander. The plans, which were approved on 13 April, show the site will include a 2850sqm distillery building, service buildings, landscaping, an access road and parking.
