Season two Outlander locations were every bit as amazing as those in Season 1. As well as showing off more of the beauties of Scotland, we got to see Sam, Caitriona and the Outlander crew making use of some impressive locations in Prague.
When Claire, Jamie and Murtagh escape from Scotland, they arrive in France at Le Havre. The harbour in the town of Dysart in Fife was used as the location for this part of the Outlander story.
As soon as Claire and Jamie arrive in France, Claire discovers a sailor to be suffering from smallpox. This takes place in Jamie’s cousin’s warehouse, the setting being provided by Deanston Distillery, in Perthshire.
It was here that Government forces faced the rebel Jacobite army. Some time after the Battle of Culloden, grave stones were laid to mark the graves of fallen clansmen. Here we see the stone marking where the men of Clan Fraser fell.
Next to Charles Bridge, on the west bank of the river, Na Kampe is a street in Prague that will be familiar from many scenes used to depict the Paris streets travelled by Jamie, Claire and Murtagh.
Vojensky kostel svateho Jana Nepomuckeho
The Vojensky kostel svateho Jana Nepomuckeho (Military Church of St. John of Nepomuk) played the part of the outside of L’Hopital des Anges. Typical with other churches in Prague it is a stunningly beautiful building.
The crypt of Glasgow Cathedral was used as the inside of the L’Hopital des Anges. This iconic Scottish church helped bring us memorable scenes involving Mother Hildegarde and the the nuns of the Couvent des Anges.
Prague steps (Radnicke schody)
Not far from the Prague Castle is the street Radnicke schody. These steps will be memorable from the first half of season 2.
Another location in Prague. The impressive library at the Strahov Monastery was used as the library at Versailles Palace.
Drummond Castle Gardens
The famous gardens at Drummond Castle were used in “Untimely Resurrection” to play the part of the Gardens of Versailles.
The only location (as of Season 2) to be used in England, Wilton House provided rooms and outdoor scenery for scenes set at Versailles Palace.
Used as the stables at Versailles Palace in Paris, Gosford House features in the first half of Outlander season 2.
Appearing as Beaufort Castle in “The Fox’s Lair”, Dean Castle in Kilmarnock is used to portray the home of Jamie’s grandfather, Lord Lovat of Fraser.
This farm was used as the site of the Battle of Prestonpans, when the Jacobites attack and defeat the British.
Used in “Vengeance is Mine”, this pre-Reformation chapel can be found north of Gleneagles, home of the famous hotel and golf course. The chapel is used by Jamie and co. to hide from the Redcoats.
Located in Callendar Park, near Falkirk, Callendar House is an impressive mansion with a rich history including the part it played in the Jacobite uprisings. It was used in Outlander season 2’s “Vengeance is Mine” where Claire and Jamie once again meet the Duke of Sandringham, and Murtagh brutally exacts revenge on the traitorous Englishman.
Muiravonside Country Park
Appearing in season 2, episode 11 (“Prestonpans”), Muiravonside Country Park was used for the scenes depicting the Battle of Prestonpans.
This castle in Thornhill, in the Dumfries and Galloway region, was used to represent the Duke of Sandringham’s residence, the grounds of which were being used by the British Army as an encampment.
Appearing in “The Hail Mary”, Falkland Palace was used as the apothecary where Claire buys medicines to help treat Alex Randall.
In episodes 12 and 13 of season 2, Touch House acts as Culloden House, used by Bonnie Prince Charlie prior to the forthcoming battle.
Pathfoot Building, University of Stirling
Used in the final episode of season 2, the Pathfoot Building at the University of Stirling appears as Inverness College, visited by Brianna and Roger, and where they meet Geillis.
Appearing in series 2, episode 13 of Outlander, Loch Katrine, specifically Brenachoile Point, provides some of the stunning scenery for this chapter of the show.
