Outlander on the BAFTA Scotland Red Carpet 2016 with @Outlandish_UK

On the 5th October  we found out that Outlander, Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan  had all been nominated for a Scottish BAFTA . We were delighted with this as we’ve been waiting for it since Sam Heughan was there to present an award back in 2013.

We weren’t going to go the Glasgow  for the red carpet, we knew lots of our Outlandish UK  friends were going but  we had a last minute change of heart and decided to drive ( Julie drove) the eight hour round  trip and we were so glad that we did.

Road Trip

We arrived in time for lunch and with some of  our Outlandish UK friends and  kept  an eye on Raddison Blu Hotel across the road.

 

Around 3pm Outlandish UK gathered in front of the hotel .We always have such a great time when we get together OUK has a big ‘Gatherings’ every two years , annually we get together in the Highland Folk Museum for ‘Outlander Day’ plus there are lots of regional gatherings organised all over the UK . It’s such a great community we love being part of it.

The hotel security  came  out to see what was on our banner they thought they had a protest group on their hands . They had never see so many people waiting outside the hotel for the BAFTAs

 

 

 

Gary Lewis and Steven Cree arrived early and were so lovely to all the fans who were waiting outside .

 

Gary is the’ king of hugs’ he was delighted to see us all there

 

Steven Cree spent ages chatting and taking photos with fans

 

Both Steven and Gary were so fantastic chatting away to us

We had such a good fun day amongst friends and it one to put in the memory box

A huge Congratulations to Caitriona Balfe for taking home a BAFTA for the best  Actress in  Television, well deserved . We had a wee scream in the car on the way back up the road when it was announced.

.bafta-666We’re hoping that there are going to be lots more awards for all the Outlander Cast in the future .
