    Outlanders fans only
    The place is like in the movie - deserted part. It’s value its only for that. Nice setting but nothing to visit. By the gate is just a sign for the Outlander fans. A caravan by the gate sells tickets and cheap magnets with the show. Otherwise a nice place with a nice drive to get there.

    Beautiful and worth the visit
    Short drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow. Mind the roads if self driving, single carriage and narrow. Can be middy so dress appropriately. No access to inside but full access to outside and grounds. Recommended for all but especially outlander fans. Man that runs the ticket booth is very kind and knowledgeable.

    Outlander’s iconic “Lallybroch”
    A must see for any self respecting Outlander fan. We even met 80’s Bree!! Great to see the iconic location in the flesh so to speak. The kiosk at the entrance sells “Lallybroch” keys for £2 so you can let yourself in whenever you like.

    Midhope (Lallybroch) Castle
    My wife was/is really into Outlander and I didn’t want her to miss “Lallybroch! It’s not a bad drive out minus the crazy Scottish roundabouts and we hit it just right after a tour bus. It’s 7 pounds for access and I’d get there on a weekday in the afternoon. Just a nice visit and we really enjoyed the guy in the ticket booth.

Calling all Outlander fans!! This is a MUST!! It was surreal to be here, and just beautiful! Unfortunately you cannot go inside, but to see Jamie Fraser's home.

Personally ,I loved it!
Let's break the visit down.....
ACCESS ROAD:-
Midhope Castle is situated on the outer grounds of Hopetoun House. It has its own access road, which is clearly signposted all the way from the main road.
The road to the access road is a country road, and ,at times , passing larger vehicles can be difficult (surrounded by farmland).
The actual access road is part of a working farm area, so please be mindful of that when visiting.

FACILITIES:-
No facilities are available,so make sure you go to the loo / have refreshments, etc, before you visit.

PAYMENT;-
You can pay at the kiosk,I paid by cash,unsure if there are any card facilities . You can pre book and pay online before you visit.
It costs £7 per person ,which,I think is worth it because of the history and links to the show.
In the kiosk,you'll find James who is so knowledgeable and friendly.
CAR PARK:-
Relatively decent size ,although it might get busy if there are tour minibuses in. Personally, I'd visit in the afternoon.

Came to visit as fans of Outlander. You get charged £7 per adult to walk up a drive take some pictures and that's your lot. Appreciate the building is a ruin so worth only a payment of £2.50. Would recommend you just stand by the entrance and zoom in with your camera

It was very quite and an awesome experience. I was very surprised it was destroyed on the inside. That part was sad.

What a treat for my Outlander fan Wife, it is not normally a public attraction but you can visit under certain circumstances. It costs but well worth it just to walk around there.

Arrived close to closing time and the fine folk employed to charge people £6 per person to enjoy the Outlander experience let myself and son inside to grab a few photographs.
Other than the building itself and the entrance nothing else equates to the illusion created by the recording company.
