The Royal Burgh acts as the fictional village of Cranesmuir, where Geillis Duncan lives with her husband, the procurator fiscal. Geillis and Claire share an interest in the healing qualities of plants and herbs, although Geillis's interests have a much darker side. Claire and Geillis are marched through the streets of Cranesmuir when suspected of witchcraft.
The Mercat Cross underwent a temporary colour change from white for filming, to match the surrounding buildings that were painted grey and brown. It features in the dramatic scene where a small boy has his ear pinned to the post, having been caught stealing; while Claire creates a distraction, Jamie sets him free.
Culross Palace's Withdrawing Room doubles as Geillis' parlour, where Jamie comes to meet Claire after her visit to Geillis. The palace garden features as the herb garden of Castle Leoch, where Claire collects plants for medicinal use.
