Outlander is one of the most popular TV shows in the world, with fans in all four corners of the globe.
Fans travel from overseas to Scotland, to see many of the stunning locations which are featured in the series.
For those who haven’t caught it yet, Outlander is based on the novels by Diana Gabaldon and tells the story of Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser (Caitriona Balfe), a nurse then a doctor and a time traveller, at the end of the Second World War.
While on a second honeymoon in Scotland with her husband, Frank Randall, Claire accidentally travels two hundred years into the past, where she meets and marries the heroic Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and becomes embroiled in the Jacobite risings.
Much of Outlander has been filmed in Scotland, highlighting the country’s dramatic mountains, iconic coasts and idyllic towns.
If you fancy starring in a Scottish drama of your own, Savills UK estate agents has revealed these six properties are located just a short drive from some of the series’ most breathtaking locations.
