Drummond Castle Gardens: Versailles

OutlanderFilm Location

As one of Scotland's most important formal gardens, Drummond Castle Gardens dates back to the 17th century. In addition to their role as a stand-in for the French Gardens of Versaille in Outlander, parts of the movie Rob Roy were also filmed on site.

The castle itself is not open to the public, but it's definitely worth strolling up the impressive main staircase to the central terrace...

... and taking in this beautiful view from the upper terrace.

Season 2, Episode 2: Not in Scotland Anymore

In 1744, Claire and Jamie have settled in Paris, ostensibly working for Jared but actually seeking to foil the Jacobite rebellion. Jared arranges for Jamie to meet with Prince Charles Stuart himself, but Jamie cannot deter him from planning to seize the English throne for his father. Claire secures an invitation to the Palace of Versailles, where she hopes to meet King Louis XV of France and thwart his funding of the Stuart cause. The Frasers make an impression, and are reunited with the Duke of Sandringham. Claire is shocked to learn that Randall is still alive, and is not sure if she should tell Jamie (source: Wikipedia).
