Outlander season four filming starts in Dunkeld
Want to get the latest Outlander season 4 filming report? We’ve got some fresh information about filming in the Pertshire village of Dunkeld.
Outlander film news from Private Outlander tours
Information coming in via social media strongly suggests that Dunkeld will be the setting for at least the next day or two’s worth of production, if not longer. There are film trucks at the location and there have been some reports floating around out there for a while. It’s a little more unclear at present as to just how many major cast members will be there. (We never like to promise anyone just because we don’t want to create any undue expectations for a particular locale.)
What we can say about Dunkeld in general is that it’s a little bit further north in Scotland than where Outlander has been inclined to visit as of late. While the majority of this season has been filmed reasonably close to Glasgow, Dunkeld is located a good 70 miles or so away. Obviously the merit in traveling around is to showcase a wide range of geography, but beyond that it is also to capture some specific terrain for what is certainly the most difficult season of the series geographically to date. When you have to recreate a place like North Carolina, one of the challenges that comes along with that is that you need to be able to find ideal matches. That can be difficult and you do need to think outside of the box sometimes. This show, perhaps more so than almost any other out there, has to be incredibly creative. Most series have more established sets than they can revisit. While Outlander has that, they also film at length in what appears to be untapped terrain. You do have to make things appear as though they are centuries in the past!
What is important at present for Outlander is simply that the series continues to move things along as we get closer to the end of production this year. We’re charting towards an end date, for now, in the month of June. There’s still a whole lot more that needs to be done before we get to that point.
Hopefully, we’ll have another filming update to share within a day or so.
