Outlander cast heads for Glasgow

Outlander will shut down several Glasgow city centre streets as filming for the upcoming series continues.

Fans hoping to get a glimpse of stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan will flock to the Saltmarket area of the city.

Turnbull Street and James Morrison Street at St Andrews Square will be closed along their full length on March 14 and 15 from 12pm until midnight.

Diversions will start at London Road to Saltmarket and then end at Steel Street.

On our Outlander tour we visit various locations used for filming the hit series Outlander. Based on the best selling novels by Diana Gabaldon, Outlander is filmed in a number of locations in castles and towns in  central Scotland.

Outlander star Sam Heughan

Outlander star Sam Heughan donates to charity after losing £100 rugby bet with co-star Caitriona Balfe.
It comes after the cast and crew of the Starz Network blockbuster descended on the small Ayrshire village of Dunure.

The tiny village was transformed into a film set for the show, which stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe.

Cast members waved to fans as they filmed scenes on Tuesday at Dunure Harbour.

The 13-episode of the show’s fourth season is due to premiere this autumn.

Outlander tourism boom in Scotland continues

We all know that Outlander has boosted the tourism in Scotland. More and more people book holidays to see the filming spots. While this has caused problems due to the few, Scotland is definitely not complaining about the benefits to the country because of the Outlander tours. Individuals have also found ways to boost their family income and do a job they love, such as Andy the Highlander.

 It’s not just about tourism. There’s an employment boom happening thanks to the time-traveling love story. More people are moving to the Scottish Highlands to live and work.

The Insider states that there’s a new Rural Tourism Infrastructure Fund, which is in place for two years and will start in the next financial year (the tax year in the UK runs April 6-April 5 each year). More than 200,000 jobs have been created thanks to the tourism boom, which is excellent for those in Scotland. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has hinted that the new fund is due to the Outlander tourism, so people need to keep it up to continue supporting the people.

 

It’s not surprising, as the series continues to film around Scotland. Despite Season 4 largely being based in the American Colonies of the 18th century, the crew remains in Scotland for filming. The Highlands give a look of the American Colonies, and it also means sights like Craig na Dun and Lallybroch are still in reaching distance for the Scottish storylines.

Just recently, filming has taken place in Falkland, Cumbernauld Glen, and Culross. The filming is most recently been in Dunure.
