VisitScotland is taking full advantage of the hype surrounding the new Starz series Outlander by launching a map of Outlander locations for fans of the books and the show.
The online guide brings visitors to genuine locations from Diana Gabaldon's first two novels and includes Scotland's must-see historic sites. Some of the highlighted locations include the Holyrood Palace, Royal Mile in Edinburgh, Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness, and Fort William, which plays an important role in the novels.
The guide is part of a larger initiative by VisitScotland to harness Outlander's popularity, entitled Scotland: The Land That Inspired Outlander.
Of the series' setting, Outlander star Caitriona Balfe told VisitScotland, "We traveled the length and breadth of Scotland and were filming in the most beautiful places so I can't imagine people won't come away with an idea of how beautiful Scotland is."
