Part 10 In Search of Lallybroch

Part 10 In Search of Lallybroch 

"It was larger than I had expected; a handsome three-story manor of harled white stone, windows outlined in the natural grey stone, a high slate roof with multiple chimneys, and several smaller whitewashed building clustered about it."
Claire's impression - Outlander

"The big white-harled farmhouse sat serenely in the middle of pale green fields of oats and barley, its windows and chimney edged in gray stone, the walled kailyard and the numerous outbuildings clustering around it like chicks round a big white hen."
Brianna's impression - Drums of Autumn

I probably drove my friend nuts trying to search for Lallybroch. I was on the hunt the minute we left Edinburgh and headed north. It was not uncommon for me to shout to her to pull over so I could get a picture. Without further ado, here is my collection of potential Lallybrochs.

Lally 2

I couldn't resist with this one even though you can't really see the white house very well. Check out the name on the fence gate!

Lally 4

Lally 5
Lally 5 was actually the Pineapple B&B we stayed in. 

Lally 6

Lally 7 

In each of the Lallybrochs I had to have a mountain close by because Jamie's cave needed to be near by. 
What do you think of my collection? Any potentials at all?

I have been following for a while, although have not been by and saw this awesome post today and really enjoyed going back over the trip. What a wonderful experience. I had no idea so many of the fictional places and things mentioned in the books were based on actual places. Thank you so much for sharing this trip with us, hope someday to get to make this journey, in the meantime got to share in it virtually through your generous sharing :)

I can't wait to visit Scotland and see all of these lovely sights for myself. :)
