Outlander star Sam Heughan spotted on a night out in Glasgow

Sam Heughan is busy filming for Season 4 of Outlander, but he still managed to sneak away for a little alone time with girlfriend Mackenzie Mauzy. On the heels of Caitriona Balfe’s exciting engagement news, the Outlander star was spotted enjoying a night on the town in Glasgow, Scotland.

Heughan Steps Out With Girlfriend
According to International Business Times, Heughan and Mackenzie were spotted at a concert in Glasgow over the weekend. The two have been dating since 2015 and were seen at the Grit Orchestra Bothy Culture and Beyond concert.

Heughan and Mackenzie typically keep their romance under wraps and seeing them in public is a rare thing. But it does confirm that Heughan is still dating Mackenzie, despite fans wishing that he and Balfe somehow get together in real life.

Balfe Shows Off Stunning Ring
Balfe’s surprise engagement was confirmed during her recent appearance at the Golden Globes. The Outlander star dazzled fans on the red carpet and showed off her massive engagement ring under the bright lights. Balfe later confirmed the engagement and admitted that she couldn’t be happier. The actress has been in a relationship with Tony McGill for the past two years.

Like Heughan, Balfe likes to keep her romance private and has only been photographed with McGill on a handful of occasions. They were previously spotted together at the Oscar Wilde Awards last year and at the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony for Jodie Foster in 2016.

Heughan And Balfe Party During Golden Globes
Heughan and Balfe aren’t romantically involved in real life, but they still know how to party together. Ahead of the Golden Globes earlier this month, the Outlander stars met at a pre-party in Los Angeles at the prestigious Chateau Marmont.

Heughan donned a blue suit for the event while Balfe stunned the crowd in a Dior velvet dress and matching earrings. Balfe was up for an award for best actress in a TV series and couldn’t be happier about the nomination. She also took a moment to talk about the Time’s Up movement, showing her support for other actresses in Hollywood.

“I think it’s a really great moment of solidarity for women, so it’ll be nice for all of us to join together and to make a really positive statement and a positive moment for change,” Balfe shared. “And I still think it’s a celebratory moment, but it’s, you know, we’re changing things, so I think that’s great.”

When Can We Expect The Wedding?
Balfe has not revealed any more details about her engagement and we still don’t have an official wedding date. Heughan rarely talks about his romantic life, so it’s difficult to tell if he and Mackenzie are also ready to take things to the next level.

Both Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe are currently busy filming the new season of Outlander, so it’s safe to safe that a wedding won’t be happening anytime soon.

Falkirk Wheel celebrates its 10th anniversary

The Falkirk Wheel , opened by the Queen in 2002, has celebrated its 10th anniversary. The Wheel’s iconic design has attracted visitors from around the world and it has become one of Scotland’s most popular tourist attractions .The Wheel enables canal boats to transfer from the Union Canal to the Forth and Clyde Canal.

Chairman Dr Jon Hargreaves said: “The Falkirk Wheel has made a great contribution to the image of Scotland and is now an intrinsic part of the Lowland canals and a perfect symbol of their renaissance and the broad economic, social and environmental public value they together deliver.”

The proposal to reopen the Forth & Clyde and Union Canal first became a real possibility in the early 1990s – a canal network enabling travel from Edinburgh to Glasgow, while regenerating the communities along the waterways.

Dr Hargreaves added: “When planning the Millennium Link, we wanted an extraordinary design which could become an icon affirming that the 18th century canal system is back and have an important role to play in travel in the 21st century.

Transfers from Linlithgow town centre take just twenty minutes and can be booked by phone . Transfers can be arranged for the surrounding areas including  Edinburgh, Stirling and Glasgow.
