Following up on the last photo round-up for Ronald D. Moore's Starz adaptation of Outlander comes a bunch of photos recently shared, some of which have already made the rounds, but give us a look at the Scotland-set historical fiction drama. The above photos shows off Caitriona Balfe looking dressed to impress and ready to dine. We also have some interesting updates on the status of the series from writer Matt Roberts.

The Outlander Facebook page shared the above photo, which shows Balfe as Claire, seated between Colum MacKenzie (Gary Lewis) and his brother Dougal (Graham McTavish). The other photos shared appear to be the images the official Outlander site (opens in new tab) has on display in their slide show. That includes this one, which shows off the back of some Redcoats.
