54-year-old man dies after jumping off a cliff at Outlander's filming location in Fife
The French harbor shown in season 2 of 'Outlander' has turned into a crime scene after a 54-year-old man jumped to death
On November 22, a 54-year-old man died after diving from a cliff at a harbor where STARZ's 'Outlander' was filmed. Emergency crews rushed to Dysart Harbour in Fife along with police, ambulance, and fire brigade to carry out the inspection at the scene. A spokesperson reportedly told The Scottish Sun: “Police in Fife responded along with other emergency services to the Dysart Harbour area at around 1.55pm on Thursday November 22 following a report that a man had fallen from the cliff. Despite the best efforts of the Scottish Ambulance Service, the 54-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. Inquiries to establish the full circumstances surrounding this incident are ongoing.”
Dysart is a town located between Kirkcaldy and West Wemyss in Fife and is now considered to be a suburb of Kirkcaldy. Its rich history dating back to 1450 shows that the town was once a part of a wider estate owned by St Clair or Sinclair family. In the 1700s the port saw growing popularity because of the trade with the Dutch and Belgians and its growing exports of coal and salt.
In 'Outlander' the place features at the start of season 2 as Claire, Jamie, and Murtagh arrive in Le Havre, France. Dysart Harbour is used as this French harbor where their nemesis, the Comte St. Germain is introduced.
