What are Heughligans?

Heughligans are fans of Sam Heughan, recently cast as our beloved Jamie Fraser from Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series.  Check out the about page for the history of the name.

Reference Library

I hate it when I see something really neat and then I want to show it to someone else  later and I have to sift back through hundreds or thousands of posts on facebook or twitter or whatever trying to find it again. So I started trying to collect all the information I was finding, which ended up being a lot as I was editing Sam’s Wikipedia page. But since Wikipedia has very strict rules about what is allowed, I couldn’t put it all there.  And if I was going to set up a central repository for myself, I figured I may as well share it so other people could find things too. And it all pretty much snowballed from there.

Basically, I’ve appointed myself Sam’s unofficial librarian so that as the number of fans continue to grow, they have a friendly place to start looking for information and a place to store information they might want to look at again later.  I’ll do my best to ferret these things out, but you can also send them to me here and I’ll add them to the appropriate spots.

Social Media Guide

I was getting a bit overwhelmed with all of the various modes of communication available and it seemed others were as well, so I created a basic guide to the various ways to socialize with other Heughligans with some tips on the Twitter and Facebook options for for those who are having trouble navigating the insanity.

What this site is not

  1. This is not an alternative site to the others set up. It is merely a guide and I don’t want to distract from the other great spaces already created. If you want to chat with other fans visit the Socialize tab above and see all the great options.
  2. Despite using a blogging platform, I’m not intending to blog here or post news updates. If I want to write about Sam or Outlander I’ll go to one of the many hangouts I’ve already joined.

Also Note: This site is not officially run or sponsored by anyone with rights to or knowledge beyond what is available on the internet about anything here.

If you have suggestions about other things that should be on this site, please let me know.

    I think you could become a site just like the Robsessedpattinson site. I think fans of Sam Heughan are every bit as obsessed as any Pattinson fans and would welcome any little snippet of news and photo,s of their idol (I,m one of those). looking forward to all future posts.

    A great site! You’ve helped to get me up to speed with the Heughan fan world ;) started the books back in the 90s and have found out I’ve got 4 to catch up on! Really interested in the show. They were filming just down the road from me last week (Falkland) and I missed it! Anyway thanks again for the site. Shame I missed the date for the collage. Think I’ll still get a shirt though :)

  24. Debra DeSpain says:

    Awesome site! Thank you! I will be coming here daily! Ok, who am I kidding…. I will be checking this site MULTIPLE times daily!!! LOL!!!

  25. Racy says:

    I will be visiting every day. My family originated in the highlands of Scotland and came to the U.S. in the 1700s. I have always had a warm spot for that country and love looking at the beautiful pictures.

  26. Sarita says:

    Is there anything special one has to do to join the group? Thanks for any info!

  27. Rowan Eden says:

    I am stuck in a time warp. I click on this page, see the banner and forget what I was doing!

  28. Sheila @shesanfran says:

    Love this site! So well organized. Thanks for doing this, Kristin.

    Sooo glad you did!!

    Please get this message to Sam:
    Read the scene in Drums of Autumn where Bree talks to Jamie about Jack Randall. They’re in the stable with the pig and cow, and over the course of conversation he forces her into submission so she knows she could not have fought off Bonnett. It’s the perfect character breakdown for Jamie Fraser.

  31. Emja says:
