Outlander fans have been fed a teaser of what happens next in the time travelling fantasy with the release of the Season 4 trailer.

Fans of the hit show have been taken straight to 18th Century North America in the clip, where lead characters Jamie and Claire Fraser were last seen washed up on a beach.

Scenes for Season 4 have been shot in various locations around Scotland, including St Andrew’s in the Square in Glasgow, Cumbernauld Glen, Crieff and Gray Buchanan Park in Polmont.

Season 4 will include 13 episodes based on Diana Gabaldon’s book Drums of Autumn, the fourth of eight books in her Outlander series.

Fans, who have coined the phrase ‘droughtlander’ to refer to the gap between seasons, will have to wait until November until the new episodes are aired. They will be available in the UK on Amazon Prime.
