Falkland, a small town in Fife, Scotland, was used to portray the city of Inverness. Claire and Frank arrive there on their second honeymoon. While there they meet Mrs Baird, the somewhat mysterious owner of their bed and breakfast, and the local minister, Reverend Wakefield.
Just like the Outlander version of Inverness, Falkland is a quiet, friendly town on the edge of some fantastic Scottish scenery. Like Frank and Claire, you can drive into town and park on High Street across from Mrs Baird’s B & B (the real life Covenanter Hotel). As well as going in for a drink or a meal, you can also stay in one of the hotel rooms, including that rented by Frank and Claire.
Other streets were used in season 2, in The Hail Mary. Brunton Street, Rotten Row and the mouth of Sharps Close, all within easy walking distance, will be remembered as Inverness in 1746. One of the houses in Brunton Street is recognisable as McGilvrey’s Boarding House, where an ill Alex Randall was staying, being cared for by Mary Hawkins. The three streets will be memorable from the scene where Claire and Murtagh walk away from the boarding house.
Season 4 filming sent the cast and crew back to Falkland. No new locations were used, but we did see a slightly updated ‘Inverness’.
