Midhope was built in the 15th Century by John Martyne, laird of Medhope. It was rebuilt in the mid 1600s and remains much the same today.
The interior of Midhope is inaccessible , although exciting new plans have been announced to refurbish Lallybroch to allow visitors to stay in the castle .

Left to Jamie by his parents, Brian and Ellen, Lallybroch is also home to Jamie’s sister, Jenny, her husband Ian Murray and their children.
