Behind the Scenes Photos of Sam and Caitriona Filming ‘Outlander’ in Edinburgh, Scotland (Day One)

[Spoiler Alert:  If you would rather be kept in the dark about scenes, costumes, makeup, etc for season three, go ahead and skip this post for now.]

Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire Randall Fraser) were seen filming scenes for Outlander season three in Edinburgh, Scotland.  The preparation for filming along with tweets from extras beforehand led to the conclusion that Outlander was going to be filming in or around the Royal Mile area of Edinburgh on Tuesday. Fans in the area certainly were given a heads up about filming, and many flocked to the area to get a glimpse of the show in production.

Below are photos of Sam and Caitriona filming scenes, waiting for a scene, and fan photos.  There are also photos of filming prep and extras. Cesar Domboy (Fergus) is also seen in one photo.

Question: What became of Claire’s grey hair?  Did she dye it before she goes back?

Check back as photos will be added as they become available.  Photos are from January 17, 2017 or earlier.

Updated with many more photos on 1/19/2017.
