On the 22nd of July 2016 Diana Gabaldon gave her first ever talk at Culloden Visitor Centre and we were lucky enough get some of the 70 tickets available for this event as were Outlandish UK members of which there were a lot in attendance.
We have seen Diana a good few times but this was an extra special meeting. not only was it on our home turf, but it was at the very location that is such a central point in the Outlander story , the evening was so emotional for all who were there.
We did film Diana’s talk
and some of the Q&A before my battery died
You will hear Paul thanking Diana for helping stop the housing development on Culloden, we were involved with this too. Here’s a photo we took of Paul back in early 2014 with Pocket Jamie on the first march to stop the development. This is the article Click Here from March 2014 where Diana and Outlander fans were helping to stop the housing development on Culloden .
Afterwards Diana was so lovely meeting and chatting to each one of us and signing our books
She signed a lovely card for Elaine who was sick and upset she that she couldn’t join us. Elaine designed the fantastic dragonfly t-shirts that Outlandish UK are selling for charity.
Also so happy that Diana wrote a card for the Inverness Outlanders that we will treasure forever
At the end of the evening we got a group photo Diana and Outlandish UK members. We can’t thank Diana enough for doing this and very surprised and delighted that Diana posted it on her Facebook page .
This evening will live with us forever as an unforgettable experience. A huge thanks to Culloden Battlefield for organising it and Diana herself for coming.
