What to expect
Make your way to the meeting point on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile to meet your guide. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned coach, head west into the Scottish countryside to discover the dramatic scenery that served as the backdrop to the Outlander TV series. Stop to enjoy views of Linlithgow Palace en-route to the first destination—Doune Castle, which doubles up as Castle Leoch on-screen. Then, continue to the county of Fife to see the village of Culross, better known as ‘Cranesmuir’, the village where Claire was accused of witchcraft. After lunch (own expense), spend time exploring Falkland, where the show’s Inverness scenes were shot, before continuing to other key Outlander sites, including Aberdour. After an Outlander-inspired day, return to Edinburgh, where your tour ends back on the Royal Mile.

Outlander Day Out
Sep 2020 • Couples
Had an enjoyable day out visiting sites where Outlander was filmed. Unfortunately we are still with Covid about we were unable to access one of castles . We had Caitlin as our tour guide. Caitlin is so enthusiastic with her story telling and history of the Jacobites. The highlight of the day was Lallybroch. But had a good time walking around Falkland and the cottage craft shop. The owner showed us photos of the cast and the work that was done to the outside of his shop.

It was grand! And so was Fiona!
Nov 2019
We had already been in Scotland for 2 months, driving the whole time. Decided it would be great to pick up three more castles and let someone else do the driving. Fiona did a great job and gave us good history updates. She also had a really great soundtrack keyed to the places we went. Her advice on where to go for the sunset was spot-on! The tour was well paced and it was great to have seen three castles and two great communities in one day, with such a short November day! Worth every penny!

Awesome, not only for Outlander fans!
Oct 2019
This was a great overview of Scotland outscapes, old towns and historic buildings. Being the filming locations of Outlander and a bit of Game of Thrones is a plus obviously, but it is an incredible tour by itself. Yvonne, our driver and local tour guide was awesome, really made it fun and definitely more enjoyable.

We had a great day with our tour guide Callum! You get to visit many iconic Outlander locations including Doune castle and Midhope Castle the real-life Lallybroch! Our guide Callum was really nice and you have enough time at each stop to enjoy the locations.
