DIANA GABALDON has taken to social media to share experience of being on the set of Outlander as filming for season two continued.

The Outlander author posted a series of pictures from on set and shared a funny anecdote about one “nameless” actor who struggled with a horse-riding scene.
Diana recalled: “The filming involved a lot of horses and was a lot of fun to watch; both horses and riders (a lot of professional stunt riders, and a number of slightly less-skilled but brave actors - as one male actor (who shall be nameless) said to me and Anne, ‘I’ve just had a conversation with my balls. They both said, ‘We'd really rather you didn't do that again’.”

In the second book by author Diana , called Dragonfly in Amber, Claire and Jamie flee Scotland for France to seek out Bonnie Prince Charlie.

Although much of the second book is based in France, the majority of the action still takes place in Scotland – much to the delight of tourism bosses.

In June Dysart Harbour, in Fife, was transformed into a 1700s-themed set.

And earlier this year, two of the show's main characters, Sam Heughan and Tobias Menzies, were also spotted shooting a crucial duel in Glasgow's Pollok Park .
