Craigmillar Castle

Craigmillar Castle is located in Edinburgh, Scotland and the original tower was built in the late 1300s. Mary Queen of Scots stayed at the castle in 1566.

Outlander is continuing to film season three on a weekly basis, and filming has moved to Craigmillar Castle. Sources are saying that it will stand in for Ardsmuir Prison, but nothing has been confirmed.

Also Robert the Bruce is Filiming at Craigmillar castle.

Robert lived from 1274 until 1329 and the film will cover wars with the English, pacts with the Irish, raids of the North and the conflict with King Edward II. Set in the bitterly cold Scottish highlands, the film tells the story of King Robert who battled against the King of England facing devastating odds. He is famous for the legend of his encounter with a spider, having been defeated six times on the battle field by the English and forced into retreat.
