Midhope Castle is located in Abercorn, just west of South Queensferry, on the Hopetoun estate. It is every bit as impressive as Lallybroch, with the familiar approach and entrance to the building.

If you’re looking for a glimpse of the ancestral home of Jamie Fraser you won’t find the real Lallybroch deep in the Highlands.
Scenes were shot at Midhope Castle on the fringes of the Hopetoun Estate near South Queensferry.
Midhope was built in the 15th Century and was built by John Martyne, laird of Midhope. It was rebuilt in the mid 1600s and remains much the same today.
Visitors are asked to admire Midhope from a distance as the interior remains largely derelict.

Could Frank return in Outlander series 4 ?

Despite his death, Frank remains an important character in Outlander Season 4. After all, he played a huge role in Brianna’s upbringing, and there are going to be comparisons she’ll make between him and her biological father. It’s just human to make comparisons.

Since the closing of Season 3, the showrunners have been clear that they would like to bring Tobias Menzies back into the series. How is that possible when both his characters are dead? And yes, Black Jack Randall certainly died at Culloden as Claire told him. Now the showrunners have said that Frank will hopefully come back into the series.

Jack Randall was in command of the garrison at Fort William ( Blackness Castle ) for four years.

In 1740, Jamie Fraser is arrested at Lallybroch while trying to defend Jenny, taken to Fort William and brutally flogged by Jack Randall.

 

It’s all about the flashbacks

Outlander Season 4 could always use flashbacks for Brianna. She’ll still have stories to tell Roger and she’ll continue to watch out for her mother by reading the historical documents to track them. After all, she’ll want to know where her mother is and when she dies.

As she’s going through the documents, Brianna could find something her dad knew or mentioned. She could find paperwork that belonged to him. This would allow her to delve more into stories about him, using flashbacks to tell the stories for the audience.

While we’ve seen some of the scenes from Claire and Frank’s points of view, is it possible that Brianna actually heard some of the arguments? Could she have watched them and those are moments that stand out for her? The flashbacks could be of her side of those arguments.

Filling in the gaps

There are still elements to the story that Outlander hasn’t told yet. Frank wouldn’t have been able to just forget about Jamie. Brianna’s red hair would have prevented that. He had to know done his research, known where he was and what had happened to him. He may have even learned that Claire would eventually go back to the past.

In fact, is it possible that when Frank wanted to take Brianna to England it was to allow Claire to journey back to the past? Did he want to give her the chance to make the decision she wished she could have made years ago?

Outlander Season 4 could fill in some of the gaps, using flashes of Frank to make it easier on the audience.
