Fraser’s Ridge, a location any faithful Outlander book fan would easily recognize. With its lush mountains and thick wilderness, it’s a place Jamie and Claire will call their home while in America. Closing our eyes, we imagine what it may have been like actually living in such a secluded setting where they lived off the land. So much was developed there: relationships, family, community, and a life. Besides Scotland, it is one of our favorite spots – it is special.
In the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, lies a small historic town called Blowing Rock and another named Boone. Nestled between these two towns, a very unique experience is created by a remarkable company, Novel Adventures, allowing participants to travel similar paths as our favorite Outlandish characters. On July 5 – 8, the “Gathering on the Ridge” event took place at The Mast Farm Inn where about 50 people met to enjoy four days of “Fraser” living. The highlight of the occasion was the attendance of Cesar Domboy, Outlander‘s Fergus Fraser. One of our very own, Mela, was fortunate to take part in the culminating function, dinner with Cesar. In this blog, Sass3 shares her experience of that magical evening.
