Scenes were shot at Midhope Castle near the Hopetoun Estate near South Queensferry.
Midhope was built in the 15th Century and was built by John Martyne, laird of Medhope. It was rebuilt in the mid 1600s and remains much the same today.
Visitors are asked to admire Midhope from a distance as the interior remains largely derelict.

Midhope Castle is the external location for fictional Lallybroch, the family home of character Jamie Fraser , and it is located on the Hopetoun Estate .  Midhope Castle dates back to the 15th Century and although the exterior is relatively intact the castle is derelict inside. Midhope Castle tours can be booked on

One of Scotland’s most impressive strongholds, Blackness Castle near Linlithgow was used as the Fort William headquarters of Black Jack Randall.
The 15th-century ex-artillery fortress overlooks the Firth of Forth and is known as “the ship that never sailed” due to its unusual shape.
It was built in the 15th century by one of Scotland’s most powerful families, the Crichtons.

Outlander season four – first episode in November

Lallybroch being an important part of the Outlander story, much use is made of Midhope Castle.

Outlander season four spoilers: Stephen Bonnet star reveals new villain’s ‘unravelling’

OUTLANDER villain Stephen Bonnett is set to rip the Frasers’ lives apart in season four

Outlander season four opening credits given Americana theme

Outlander fans are getting more and more excited for the premiere of season four next month, which is set to plunge Jamie Fraser (played by Sam Heughan) and Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) into an entirely new world as they settle in the American colonies.

Viewers last saw the married couple washed up on the shores of North Carolina in the season three finale last year, following months of turmoil as they navigated their way across to Jamaica and beyond.

The new instalment will finally see Jamie and Claire enjoy a settle home life for a brief stint, but the arrival of Irish pirate Stephen (Ed Speleers) has the potential to ruin everything.

What’s more, the show’s latest trailer has teased Brianna Fraser (Sophie Skelton) will make the monumental decision to go through the Standing Stones in a bid to find her parents.

This comes after the university student receives a stark warning from Roger Mackenzie (Richard Rankin) Jamie and Claire could be in danger, but it’ll be nothing compared to the horrors Stephen will inflict.

The psychotic character could be set to take a particular fancy to Brianna on the hit time-travelling series, but how will the plot progress? Surely Highlander Jamie wouldn’t let Stephen continue his reign of terror.

Shedding light on his character, the Downton Abbey actor hinted at the timeline to come.

“He’s a tricky man,” Ed told Glamour Online.

“There’s a lot of levels to him, a lot of layers,” he continued. “I think he has a very particular view on the world.

“Whether that’s due to circumstance, whether that’s due to nature, nurture, all of this — what actually he’s really about, who he really is.”

“It will all be unraveled all in good time,” the star added cryptically.

Exact details of the pain Stephen will cause are being kept tightly under wraps, but book-fans can already guess at the torment that’s ahead.

It’s unlikely the pirate will be a worse foe than the infamous Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies), however his actions are set to have lasting consequences on the beloved Fraser family.

Meanwhile, The Spy Who Dumped Me star Sam has teased the first meeting between Jamie and his long-lost aunt Jocasta (Maria Doyle Kennedy) in the season opener.

The Scottish actor shared: “[Meeting Jocasta is] a really important moment [for Jamie].

“Jamie’s mother and father have always been a very strong presence in his mind, and in his life.

“For him to meet his last relative — and that she looks and sounds so much like his mother — is really big for him.”

English actress Maria went on to describe her character as “a woman who is clearly nobody’s fool, she doesn’t suffer fools gladly, although she sees them everywhere”.

“She can’t help but be attracted to this incredibly opinionated and empowered woman [Claire],” the actress then added. “She doesn’t meet women like that.”

Exciting new photos of the Outlander cast filming Season 4

Exciting new photos of the Outlander cast filming Season 4 of the Starz drama, look away now. For those Sassenachs who need to know every detail, read on.

Over the last few months, the cast of Outlander has been hard at work on the fourth season, with the crew transforming Scotland into colonial America. And it hasn’t been easy: The night shoots have been long and cold, according to series stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan.

WATCH: Caitriona Balfe's First 'Outlander' Chemistry Test With Sam HeughanThe passion is palpable.

Sophie Skelton, who plays Brianna Randall, was recently spotted on the Outlander set in Dunure, Scotland. Not really out of the ordinary—except she was in period costume!

This means, at some point in Season 4, Brianna travels through the stones back to the 18th century. And who’s in the 18th century? Her parents, Jamie (Heughan) and Claire (Balfe)!

A Randall-Fraser family reunion in looking very possible. Of course, if you’ve read the books, this piece of information comes at no surprise.

It’s getting Scot in here.

Also spotted in the photos is Steven Cree, who plays Ian Murray Sr.. In other words, the setting is likely Scotland instead of America, as his character owns and runs the Fraser estate Lallybroch.
