where is Craigh na dun ?

Craigh na dun , the standing stones in Outlander

Craigh na Dun

The mystical and enchanting spot where Claire and Frank first come across the standing stones that soon after were to propel Claire back in time. They have been an ever-present since, including in Season 4 . No standing stones actually exist here but I think they are based on a combination of  Clava Cairns and Callanish , both of which are outstanding Scottish tourist sites. Even without the presence of the colossal pillars, this spot in Perthshire is a fantastic selection as Craigh na Dun.

Finding the exact spot of Craigh na Dun is not immediately clear but the site of filming is at Kinnloch Rannoch in Perthshire. On the south side of the Dunalastair Reservoir in Tay Forest Park under the gaze of the spectacular Schiehallion mountain, this is scenic Highlands at its best. You will recognise the mound from the roadside and it’s just a short walk out to the site. Kinnloch Rannoch was used in numerous other scenes , mainly because it’s one of the most remote and beautiful areas in the country.

Droughtlander comes to an end soon

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

Droughtlander is coming to an end as Season 4 of Outlander is set to premiere in a few weeks . To help fans get through the wait, Outlander stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan dished on the one thing they cannot live without on set.

Heughan and Balfe were asked to list the five things they depend on while filming new seasons of Outlander. While the two differed on most of the things, they agreed that they absolutely cannot live without coffee while filming Outlander series four .

The two also adorably said they need each other on set, though for Balfe that’s only because she needs “a tall ginger Scott to take the piss out of it.”

According to Town and Country, the rest of the cast and crew also got in on the fun and listed their requirements during filming. This includes Cesar Domboy, who needs access to Wi-Fi, and Ed Speelers, who always has his music on standby.

The cast members also gave plenty of love to the crew and the fans who are constantly sending them goodies.

Season 4 of Outlander will explore Jamie and Claire’s journey as they set up new lives in colonial America. In the process, the two will face many challenges, including coming to terms with slavery and the brewing American Revolution. Much of Outlander series four was filmed at the Wardpark Studios in Cumbernauld, Scotland .

Another big storyline this season is Brianna’s (Sophie Skelton) highly anticipated reunion with Jamie, which should bring plenty of emotions.

In the meantime, Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe are scheduled to make an appearance this weekend at New York Comic-Con. The two will join their fellow cast members for a special panel about the upcoming season. The event, which will be live streamed on the internet, will also feature the likes of Skelton and her on-screen romance, Richard Rankin.

The new season of Outlander kicks off Nov. 4 on Starz.
