Ever since we first read Outlander over twenty years ago we always thought that it would be wonderful if there was an Inverness map with references to locations mentioned in the books. Back in 2013 we discovered that there were other Outlander Fans living in and around Inverness and it didn’t take us long to become friends with each other and formed the Inverness Outlanders group. We often talked about how an Outlander Map was needed for Inverness and one of the most common questions that were asked online was – ‘Besides Clava Cairns and Culloden Battlefield what other Outlander related places are there in Inverness?’ So we started our blog to address this question. click here and click here to read the blog posts which answer the question. We found it was a huge hit with visiting Outlander Fans but we still felt a map was needed, then in 2017 we were asked to do a stall in the clan tent at the Inverness Highland Games.
We made up display boards showing places for Outlander fans to visit in and around Inverness. These boards were very popular, especially with local B&Bs and guest houses, who were desperate to find out where they could get this information.
Visit Scotland have done an amazing job on the Outlander Film Location Map click here but there wasn’t a map out there for the book and real history locations in Inverness.
We stressed how much this map was needed and we would help someone put it together. This is when the Inverness Events Manager Gerry Reynolds put us together with the Scottish Provincial Press who were more than happy to help our idea come to a reality.
We got in touch with Diana Gabaldon to tell her about our idea which she gave us her blessing and also gave permission to use some quotes from the Outlander book series on the map. We can’t thank Diana Gabaldon enough for all the support she gives to Outlander Fans.
So with a big hand from Bernadette Walker at SPP, all the sponsors who helped pay for the map being published and the amazing team work from our Inverness Outlander group finally in May 2018 we got our hands on the Inverness Outlander Map.
Here’s a better on line link for printing the map yourself but we find this one doesn’t open on phones it is better on a PC
***After printing we did noticed a mistake which we had missed the Wardlaw Mausoleum is in the wrong place it should be near Reeling Glen. We apologise for this mistake. This mistake has been fixed in the downloadable version.
