Outlander and the Scottish Highlands

We took a two day tour of the Scottish Highlands and the Outlander fangirl in me kept squealing  because we got to visit a lot of places that were mentioned in the book.

 Town of Inverness.. the gateway to the Highlands…

We passed by this pub and decided to eat here because there were a lot of people drinking on the patio..it must be popular!

Bangers and Mash / Fish and Chips / Beef and Mushroom Pie… we ordered the classic pub dishes and weren’t disappointed…

Glencoe..

We also visited Clava Cairns, the Bronze Age burial site that was the inspiration behind Diana Galbaldon’s best selling book series Outlander.

I hoped I could travel back in time by squeezing between the rocks like in the books… but it didn’t work…..  I wasn’t the only one going crazy at the rocks.. there were so many other fans doing the same thing!

We also got to visit Culloden Battlefield, the site of the last bloody battle of the failed Jacobite Rising.

I got quite emotional while visiting; even though Outlander is fictional, the battle did occur and so many lives were lost.

We also visited Loch Ness and look.. is that Nessie????

Our last stop in the short trip to the Highlands was to the town of Pitlochry, a small charming town that somehow reminds me of Harry Potter?????

I’ve never had such a large piece of fried fish!!!

FAIM? OUI OUI!!!
