Outlander star Sam Heughan gave fans a sneak peek behind the scenes of the filming of season 7.
The Outlander official Twitter account shared a video of the 42-year-old, dressed as his character Highland warrior Jamie Fraser, as he showed fans around the ‘Big House’.
Alongside the clip, the account wrote: “There’s no place like the Frasers’ home. Take a look around the Big House with the one and only @SamHeughan. #Outlander”#
Sam quoted the tweet, joking: “Not sure I actually showed much of the house…” alongside a laughing emoji and a facepalm emoji.

In the clip, Sam starts: “Hello there, I know in fact it looks like I’m outside but in fact, we are here in the studio on a stage at Wardpark studios. This is the interior of the Big House.”
He continues on through the Frasers’ home describing all the monumental moments that took place throughout the ridge.
Heughan tells fans the stairs in the house are “one of his favourites to run up and down” and reveals that they don’t actually lead anywhere like they do in the series. He then goes on to show fans the dining room, the sitting room and the breezeway. He goes on to explain that he “loves all the wee props here”.
He also shows the surgery joking that he isn’t normally allowed to enter it “without Miss Balfe” adding that it’s where she discovered penicillin and started using ether.
Fans were delighted at the behind-the-scenes preview.
One wrote: “I loved it so much, I’ve watched it numerous times. Thank you for bringing a little joy to our lives. You don’t know how much that means in times like these.”
Another added: “This is a huge Behind The Scene! It takes time to experience all the wee details you showed: big thanks Sam! But… hey… Where’s the bedroom?!”
“Thank you very much, Sam, you really want to share with us. Thumbs up to the art directors and set designers who took such trouble to give us beauty and authenticity” One said.
