Filming for “Outlander” season 4 after the Christmas break hasn’t been easy for the cast and crew. Caitriona Balfe (Claire) recently shared a picture online, showing just how challenging it is on the set.

In the picture (see below), Sam Heughan (Jamie) can be seen ducking his head inside a jacket as far as he can, his hands slid into pockets to keep them warm. The picture was taken on set, where the cast members were given the portable chairs during the breaks.

Scotland is known for its unpredictable weather conditions. The picture appears to have been taken on location, with just an artificial partition shielding the actors from the cold winds.

Balfe joked about being given “more luxurious” sets each year on the show. Commenting on the post, one fan remarked that it’s not that difficult for the actors because they get picked up in a car and driven to the location, and on top of that they get a hot cup of coffee to start off their day.

Most of the other comments, however, suggested that fans band together, go to the filming set, and give the cast a warm hug. There were quite a few volunteers.

Meanwhile, another unit of the production is currently in Falkland. The village Fife is standing in for Inverness, the Sunday Post reports. Filming is expected to take place for two days at this location.

A gift shop in Fife known as Fayre Earth has been converted into a furniture and hardware store, with a window display of tools that are appropriate for the time period depicted on the show. Campbell’s Coffee House and Eatery has been changed into a grocery store, with fruit and vegetables stall on the outside.
