Repairs at historic Fife harbour where Outlander scenes were filmed

Plans to repair one of the landmarks used for filming Outlander in Fife have been unveiled.

Dysart Harbour’s concrete surface is breaking up, preventing use by local sailors, and masonry around the historic area is in need of attention.

The harbour dates back to around 1450.

Dysart Sailing Club has lodged a planning application with Fife Council to carry out repairs to the slipway, and to repoint stonework around the harbour.

The works, planned over four years, will be funded individually using local and volunteer labour where possible.

The work includes re-setting dislodged and uncovered rails and stones to their original lines, and patch-up and repair broken areas.

The club said the concrete surface is now breaking up preventing use by the yacht club - and that restriction on launching boats is removing an important source of revenue.

Filming begins for American TV Series Outlander at Dysart Harbour in 2015. Pictured are Sam Heughan (Jamie) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire) on set of season two of the series.

The harbour has enjoyed a tourism boost since the worldwide hit show Outlander - which stars Scottish actor Sam Heughan - filmed there in 2015.
