Cheeky selfie 🤳 This location is incredible for landscapes🏴👍
Really I should be posting London photos, because I’ve been back here for a week now. But I haven’t had a chance to go and take new photos this week, and it’s too coooooold today, so I’m going to quietly post Outlander filming locations instead and hope you don’t notice. 😂🙈
Ten points if you can tell me which scenes were filmed here! 💃🏻
Anyone else ready to move in?

The site is likely to have been a Norse dun (fort), though no traces of any prehistoric structure now remain. The promontory was enclosed by a curtain wall in the 13th century, and a four-storey tower house was built in the late 14th century. This tower was similar in style to contemporary structures at Kisimul Castle and Caisteal Maol. Alasdair Crotach, the 8th chief, added the Fairy Tower as a separate building around 1500.
During the 17th century, new ranges of buildings were put up between the old tower and the Fairy Tower, beginning in 1623 with the state apartment built by Ruaraidh Mor. The old tower was subsequently abandoned until the late 18th century, when the 23rd chief began the process of homogenising the appearance of the castle.
