Outlander Takes Over the Big Apple

The NYC Outlander in the City event just ended and social media was once again overtaken with pics, vids & comments.

I swear I’m gonna get up the nerve to go to one of these events someday.  I must confess that I’m a bit intimidated by the stars not sure why I mean they put their pants on one leg at a time just like I do. I suppose this can be my next “My Peak Challenge”.

Any who…here are a few pics & videos from the Outlander in the City event. Just hope the fans don’t mind me borrowing their pics 😉


Wow! Outlander in the City! @stevencree #outlanderinthecity

Happy World Outlander Day

Just on the off chance you don’t know what World Outlander Day is,  June 1st is the day that the first  Outlander book was published by Diana Gabaldon back in 1991.  So June 1st has been named by fans as World Outlander Day.

Today Jamie & Claire (Sam Heughan & Caitriona Balfe)  sent a wee video out to the fans in honor of World Outlander Day.

The “Outlander effect” helps save one of Scotland’s most important parish churches – The Courier

Hundreds of fans have made a pilgrimage to Perthshire since Tibbermore Church featured in one of the hit television show’s most iconic scenes.

Their donations – together with money from the company behind the show– has enabled the Scottish Redundant Churches Trust to undertake £70,000 of roof repairs and preserve its structure.

As well as its modern resonance with television viewers, the parish church has significant historical importance. It dates from 1632 and many of its features remain unique.

The church’s raked stone flooring and simple wooden pews are distinctive and unusual survivors, while the declaration around its pulpitis is of a style long missing from most places of worship of Tibbermore’s age.

The stained glass windows, from 1920, designed by Oscar Paterson commemorate the women who served their country during the First World War.

Victoria Collison-Owen, executive director of the Scottish Redundant Churches Trust, said: “The Tibbermore Charitable Trust bought the church when it was closed by the Church of Scotland.

“Its members did a fantastic job keeping the building alive and part of the community but it was a huge challenge for them.

“There was a realisation that it was too much responsibility for a small community trust and the sums of money involved were much bigger than they could ever have expected.

“Time and age were catching up with the building – as they do with so many churches – and for that reason they approached us to take it on.”

Money was secured from the Listed Places of Worship roof repair fund and the Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust, as well as money and support flowing in since Outlander filmed in Perthshire.

Tibbermore was the location for one of the hit show’s most memorable scenes in which central characters Claire and Geillis are put on trial as witches.

Victoria said: “We have invested much of the funds that followed the filming of Outlander at the church.

“The film crew were great to work with and really respectful of the building – consulting with us on everything – and we must thank them for their support.

“The filming and the money we received really were a big catalyst for the repairs.

“In addition to that, we now receive a huge number of visitors from all four corners of the globe.

“The show’s reach really is extraordinary, with lots of visitors from the US, Germany, France and Belgium in particular.

“We have found the fans to be a really enthusiastic bunch with a great interest in Scottish history and heritage in general.”

Community uses remain limited as the church has “no heat, no light, no power and no running water” though the trust has pledged to “be creative”.

Victoria said one of “loveliest things” to happen since repairs were undertaken was the first wedding to be held since the church closed.

As works continue, visitor numbers are expected to increase further with the release of a new interactive Outlander locations map by VisitScotland.

All Bets are ON When it Comes to Rugby with Outlander Casts Sam Heughan & Caitriona Balfe

Seems there is a bit of a rivalry between the Outlander cast these days over the Six Nations rugby game that was recently played between Scotland and Ireland.

Sam Heughan who stars as Jamie Fraser in the Starz hit TV show Outlander wagered a bet his co-star and TV wife Claire played by Caitriona Balfe.

Cait gladly accepted the bet with Heughan.

The bet started out fairly harmless

Unfortunately for Cait Ireland didn’t take home the win Saturday with Scotland.

To which Sam replied that he couldn’t hear her shouting in the stands…hehehe

Then after Scotland won Outlander writer Matt Roberts chimed in on the bet situation.

To which Sam replied he wanted Cait to now wear a Saltire onesie since she lost the bet. 😂

Caitriona then responds that she’s starting to feel ill about the whole matter.

Matt comes back at Cait….

Sam responds with…

To which Cait comes back with…

And of course the fans were having a field day with all the banter between the Outlander wife & hubby.

Even finding Sam a onesie of his own.. 😂
