On to Edinburgh and Outander fun along the way

Woody ready for another day of travelling this time back to Edinburgh ☺☺

I had looked up a couple of places that were used in the making of "Outlander" and this church was part of the witch trial 

Some very old graves here 

And lucky for us, someone had unlocked the church so we were allowed to take a couple of pics 

The trial was filmed in here 

Plenty of pics here showing from the show 

We then drove along this narrow road to Drummond Castle 

The exterior wall 


The castle 

and another side pic, but we did not go inside 

Just a pic of the garden used in Series 2 as the garden of Versilles 

Leaving that castle under its bridge 

Off to this distillery which also was part of the series but down in the cellars 

A lovely river Teith flowing past 

And this is as far as I got, pic of a barrel

Anyway next stop was Doune Castle which in Outlander is Castle Leoch, the seat of Mackenzie Clan again did not go inside this one but loved seeing it for sure ♥

Then we traveled through Sterling and visited the Stirling Castle but only a few snaps as not enough time to do a proper tour around inside 

Looking down to a grave site 

Out the front area 


It is big and having renovations done too 

The entrance in......

But maybe we will be back for a good look ☺☺



Goodbye Stirling Castle 

Then onto another castle.....this one is called Blackness Castle and in the series same name 


This one was used as the base for  Black Jack who was a hideous sadistic Captain 




Paul enjoyed it here checking out all the dim dark places 

and stairs, yes stairs.....by now I had to avoid as the front of my thighs were agony when climbing back down lol 

I hung around in the courtyard 


Isn't amazing what was made all those centuries ago
It is a 15th century fortress 


Little spots to hide or be chained up 


Good old spiral staircase which Paul managed to trot up and down 

I ventured out onto the pier attached 





Really quite a large castle once poking around inside 


more spiral stairs 

Neat solid gate locked each night 
So end of this bit of fun and onto Edinburgh xoxoxo
