The Irish lead, who plays time-travelling Englishwoman Claire Randall, has been spotted driving an old-style American car through the streets.

And fans have been in for a treat, with the star taking the time to pose for pictures with some who have been watching filming for hours.

One fan, Paula O'Malley, got the chance to meet the actress on Sunday afternoon.

Other extras have been seen dotted around, some pushing ancient prams and dressed in old-fashioned garb.

Some fans appear disappointed that male lead Sam Heughan has not yet made an appearance, despite being in Scotland for the last few weeks to attend university graduations.

We told you earlier how the Scots actor had picked up an honorary doctorate from the University of Glasgow earlier this summer for his charitable work and artistic success.
