Wordless Wednesday: Places in the Books

Here are a few pictures that remind me of various places mentioned in the OUTLANDER books.

Ashness farm
Ashness, in the Lake District, England. I like to think this could be what Helwater looked like. (William being, among other things, Viscount Ashness.)


A stone circle known as Long Meg and Her Daughters, near Penrith, Cumbria, England. To get a better view, look at the panorama here. (Note: requires Java in order to see it!)

Could this have been where Jerry MacKenzie's plane went down? Perhaps. (Or perhaps not, but it's fun to speculate!)

Shanty Spring Branch (again) - 5350'
The Blue Ridge Mountains, NC (near where Fraser's Ridge is supposed to be located)


Cluny's Cage -- mentioned in VOYAGER as a place similar to the Dunbonnet's cave. The entrance is supposed to be near a white spot on this photo, but I can't tell where it is.

Corrimony Cairn
Corrimony Cairn, Scotland, burial place of General Simon Fraser of Balnain (mentioned in ECHO).

Hope you enjoy these pictures!
