The only reason to come here is the house‘s connection with Outlander. It is a boarded up ruin with a ten pound parking fee (the car park is just out of sight). There are also signs up forbidding photos of the houses to the right...More

Midhope is boarded up now - you can no longer enter. And the cost of £10 for parking for the privilege of walking up the drive to Lallybroch is a bit much - but hell, they know we'll pay it. The emotion on seeing it...More

Loved seeing Lallybroch in person. It cost $10 to park car and walk in but to us it was worth it. We were able to walk right up onto the front steps and get some great photos. The only disappointing thing was the DANGER KEEP...More

As we both enjoy Outlander, we felt compelled to visit. And we weren't disappointed, it's a little off the beaten track but well worth it.

Big scam, hardly a site to see. Way to expensive. 10 pounds. It only takes 2 minutes to see the castle. Very disappointed.

Been before but now they are charging. Grumpy wee man in a hut guarding the road. Go at crack of dawn or pay for the tours that go to lots of places- worth the money instead of paying for each x

Was exciting walking up and seeing the house (not really a "castle", as such). Thoughts of Outlander TV show came flooding to mind as we entered thru the archway into courtyard. Was fun just to be able to see it and be there, as a...More
