Ms Gabaldon last year added her voice to opposition to an Inverness developer’s proposals to build homes within sight of the battlefield – before councilors put their foot down, approving a buffer zone five times the size of that which previously protected the sacred site.
Outlander Fans Supporting an Important National Trust for Scotland Site
In honor of Outlander TV News reaching 30,000 followers on Twitter, a donation drive to support a National Trust for Scotland site, Culloden has been organised. Culloden is a central event and focus in the second season of Outlander, and it was already touched on in the first season. Many fans who have been fortunate to travel to Scotland have visited this site and the Clan Fraser marker. We have never put together any sort of donation drive or an appeal for donations since we began this site in 2013. Many Outlander fans, sites, and groups have already made a difference through several organizations, some that are supported by the actors in this remarkable television series. So now is our chance…click here for the details.
Battlefields Trust Opposes Housing Development! "The Trust opposes the proposed development at Culloden. It recognises that the site for which planning permission has been granted is brownfield land in the sense that it already contains farm buildings. The Trust is concerned about the precedent the permission to develop at Culloden sets for the wider battlefield and others inventoried in Scotland. The adoption of a permissive approach at Culloden risks inappropriate development on other brownfield sites on battlefields. The Trust therefore asks you to review this decision and to provide categoric public assurance that the planning permission currently granted should, in no way, be seen as a green light to developers to build on battlefield brownfield sites at Culloden or elsewhere."
