She arrives at Castle Leoch and after being dressed properly by the housekeeper Mrs. Fitzgibbons meets the laird of the castle, Colum MacKenzie. He agrees to provide her with transportation to Inverness in a few days time but Claire's story of being on her way to France when attacked by brigands is suspect and she is thought to be a spy. When the time comes, Colum tells she'll not be leaving until they exactly who she is and what she's up to. Written by
