Graham McTavish and his wife Garance Doréfo delighted fans with snaps from their recent trip to the Isle of Skye.
The Scots actor, best known for his role as Dougal MacKenzie in Outlander, tied the knot earlier this year in stunning nuptials at Borthwick Castle in Edinburgh with his kids watching on. Graham, 62, met author and businesswoman Garance Doréfo in 2021 and the pair got engaged last August.
The couple have been taking time visiting each other’s homeland as Graham took his bride to visit the Isle of Skye and all the stunning locations nearby. He even gave fans a glimpse into his trip to Skye with Garance as he shared snaps including an adorable Highland cow and Eilean Donan Castle.
Captioning the post on Instagram, Graham wrote: “Glimpses of Scotland this week. Encounters with Highland cattle, a fabulous café that we stumbled upon called @the_croft_cafe, views to the cuillins, Eilean Donan, the beauty of Plockton, the fantastic beer and food of @glenelg.inn and a very bad-tempered pony. But above all the people who gave us such a wonderful time here #thehighlands #plockton #caketastic #eileandonancastle #scotlandthewelcoming.”
Fans rushed to compliment Graham on his stunning snaps across Scotland as he shows Garance his homeland. One fan penned: “Thanks for sharing, Graham!! I’ve known some parts of Scotland & I must say I fell in love with it the moment I set eyes on it. It’s a breathtaking land!”
Another penned: “Looks like you both had a fantastic trip. Who needs sunshine to have a good time,” while a third wrote: “Rain or shine, what a beautiful trip! Thank you both for sharing.”
Graham was born in Glasgow and lived there until he was a child, before moving away with his family. The actor has since relocated to New Zealand after filming The Hobbit trilogy in 2011.
This comes after Graham visited a selection of Men In Kilts filming locations from the first season he filmed in Scotland with Sam Heughan. Taking to Instagram at the time, Graham wrote: “Thoroughly enjoying revisiting the Isle of Skye and revisiting some locations from our first season of Men in Kilts. Take note of the little metal gazebo under which Sam made friends with the entire midge population of Scotland.”
He added: “Also the body of water below Dunvegan castle where we dueted the Outlander theme song while rowing a boat (actually Sam did the rowing I mangled the singing).
“Also take note of the portrait of Norman 22nd chief of Macleod known by some as “The Wicked Man”, by others (including Flora MacDonald) as “The Red Man”. He was reputed to have murdered his first wife. In the portrait painted by Allan Ramsay he wears tartan in defiance of the proscription of Highland dress post Culloden.”
