Craigh na Dun

Craigh na Dun is a fictional ancient stone circle in Scotland and part of a more extensive network of magic stones within the Outlander universe. Their appearance is inspired by Calanais stones on the Isle of Lewis, which feature similar large rocks.

In the series, Claire Randall first travels from 1945 to 1743 by touching the largest cleft stone on the dawn of Beltane.

Travel through the stones seems to depend on both the day of the year and a genetic predisposition. Claire Fraser and her child, Brianna, have the ability. Geillis Duncan and her descendants (William Buccleigh MacKenzie, Jeremiah Walter MacKenzie, and Roger MacKenzie) have the capacity, along with Jeremiah MacKenzie and Amanda MacKenzie, children of Brianna and Roger MacKenzie.
