Old Photograph Turret Fakland Palace Fife Scotland
Old photograph of people in a turret at Falkland Palace in Fife, Scotland. One of the first scenes for Outlander was filmed in the picturesque town of Falkland, which substituted for 1940s Inverness. Before Falkland Palace was built a hunting lodge existed on the site in the 12th century. This lodge was expanded in the 13th century and became a castle which was owned by the Earls of Fife, the famous Clan MacDuff. The castle was built here because the area could be easily defended as it was on a slight hill. The surrounding land eventually became the Palace gardens.
