    Claire's time traveling portal, the standing stones of Craigh na Dun, is approximately forty miles south of Inverness. Though Diana Gabaldon invented this location, there are many standing stones throughout Britain from which she received inspiration, namely the stones at Castlerigg, the Clava Cairns, and Tomnahurich.
    When she meets up with Dougal, Jamie and company upon passing through the stones, Claire is taken to Castle Leoch, home of the MacKenzie's of Leoch. This is once again a made-up location, but Castle Leod, the actual seat of the MacKenzie clan, resembles Gabaldon's image of Leoch quite closely.

Lallybroch can be translated as "lazy tower," so named for the crooked broch, or tower, that is located north of his home. Jamie is the Laird, or lord, of Broch Tuaroch, the lands on which Lallybroch is located.
