Outlander - the story so far

The Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated series, which has fans around the world has won a number of awards, including BAFTA Scotland and Critics Choice awards. The series follows the story of Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a married World War Two combat nurse from 1945 who falls back in time to 1743 where she is thrown into an unknown world and her life is threatened.

When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate relationship is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

The series has brought Scotland's history to a new audience, with Outlander fans travelling around the Scottish Highlands to visit different places associated with the series, including Culloden battlefield, the Wardlaw Mausoleum and the Old High Church - all of which are included in our article on Outlander locations, written by The Inverness Outlanders.

Ronald D. Moore, Jim Kohlberg, and Andy Harries serve as executive producers of Outlander, which is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Story Mining & Supply Company and Left Bank Pictures in association with Sony Pictures Television.
