Sam Heughan has delighted fans with his recent update on social media. The Outlander star shared a snippet into enjoying some time away from his busy schedule to soak up Scotland's outdoors.

The Scottish actor, 44, is famed for his role as Highland warrior Jamie Fraser in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander franchise, which was adapted for the small screen by production company Starz. Fans soon fell in love with his portrayal of the role, and his personal life.

Sam shared some photos and clips from his trip kayaking at the beach. "Scotland… ya BEAUTY!," he simply captioned the snaps on his Instagram page to his 4.3 million followers. He was sailing through the icy depths of the cold blue waters, as he panned the camera around to take in the idyllic scenery.

The acting star stopped to pose for a selfie whilst out at sea, as he sported a black cap, red waterproof jacket and of course not without safety first, he also wore a light blue life jacket. He looked reflective at the camera, as he held the paddle in his other hand.

Another snap showed three kayaks lined up on the shorefront, suggesting he took the trip out to sea with some pals. The gorgeous landscape showed Scotland in its true beauty - surrounded by golden sands, turqouise waters and rockery.

Meanwhile, he also added onto his post from his trip a shot from the rock pools, as white fluffy clouds soared above. Fans soon rushed to the comments section, delighted with the update as they gushed over how beautiful Scotland is.

One person wrote: "To see Scotland one day is on my bucket list.. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful view of it!," as someone else echoed: "Looks amazing!!! Thank you for sharing this with us! One day I will visit there."

A third added: "Gloriously tranquil. Nothing better than a wander in nature." A fourth quipped: "I’m kayaking later this week! Can’t wait! Of, course it won’t be as gorgeous as Scotland… but some day, maybe!"

Elsewhere, rumours have been swirling after Heughan was spotted with a 'mystery brunette' in London recently. The pair were snapped holding hands.

Sam was sporting dark clothing and wearing sunglasses as he walked alongside the unknown woman, who was wearing a black woollen mini-dress with a long leather coat. The actor, who hails from the small village of Balmaclellan in Dumfries and Galloway, was striding the streets in a pair of black trainers while his fashionable companion wore her own pair in white.

Heughan and the mystery lady were walking on Dean Street in Soho passing the trendy outside restaurants of Doppo and Burger & Lobster when they were spotted.

The Outlander star's most recent love interest was Australian model Monika Clarke back in 2022 but the Scot later pronounced himself as single the following year.
