We start our 4 Day Outlander tour in Scotland’s beautiful capital city, Edinburgh; where Jamie and Claire dramatically reunited after 20 years!
You and your driver-guide will explore the cobbled streets of the new and old towns of Edinburgh to get a feel for the city and why it was the perfect destination for Jamie and Claire’s reunion, before visiting some of the city’s iconic destinations with your driver-guide, such as Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace.
Next, you and your driver-guide head to Hopetoun House and explore it's wonderful gardens and estate. To bring your first day in our bonnie wee country to an end, your driver-guide will take you to The Balmoral Hotel (your accommodation for the night). The Balmoral is a beautiful and iconic victorian masterpiece in the center of Edinburgh, truly the ideal location for your group to explore the city’s vibrant nightlife, selection of restaurants and bars throughout the evening.
Day Two of this Outlander tour focuses on a couple of significant filming locations from the series.
In the morning, you and your driver-guide will leave Edinburgh and head to Midhope Castle - the filming location for ‘Lallybroch’, Jamie Fraser’s family home.
We’ll explore the castle and spend time learning about how the castle was used in the series before heading to our second destination and second castle of Day Two: Blackness Castle.
Blackness was used to represent the town of Fort William in the series - more recently being used in the Mary Queen of Scots blockbuster movie - and it’s dramatic position of the edge of Firth of Forth.
If you’re all ‘castle’d’ out, your driver-guide will take you from Blackness Castle, over the magnificent Queensferry bridge en route to the quaint village of Culross.
In Outlander, the village of Culross was used as the filming location of Cranesmuir and unlike many filming locations that transform when put on the big screen… Culross is almost exactly the same as seen in the series; turning this small village into one of the most incredible immersive experiences for any Outlander fan.
From Culross, we drive to Stirling where you’ll be dropped off at your accommodation for the night ahead of a big Day Three!
Day Three starts off with a visit to the nearby Stirling Castle (I know… it’s not strictly Outlander-based, but while we’re in the area) to learn about it’s fascinating royal and bloody history!
We continue our morning by paying a visit to Doune Castle (known by Outlander fans as Castle Leoch), a medieval fortress in Stirling used throughout the series. Indeed, Doune Castle is a popular filming destination for producers with both Game of Thrones and Monty Python and the Holy Grail using the castle’s distinct exterior to add that authentic medieval feel.
After a busy morning, it’s time to sit back and relax as your driver-guide escorts you across Central Scotland and up towards the West Coast.
As we’re approaching the coast you’ll be greeted by the stunning Glencoe Mountains (our final Outlander destination in Day Three). As you see this dramatic and beautiful mountain range, you’ll soon realize exactly why the producers gave it pride of place in the opening credits and featured the region numerous times throughout the series.
If you have time, you might want to take a quick Gondola trip up Ben Nevis (which can provide an unparalleled view of Scotland’s West Coast) before driving to Fort William where you’ll find your accommodation for the last night of our tour.
On our final day on this wonderful Outlander tour experience, we head to where it all began: Kinloch Rannoch.
Kinloch Rannoch was the famous location of the standing stones where Claire was first transported back in time and although the standing stones were just props created for the show, it is still well worth a visit thanks to its breathtaking natural scenery.
Following that, your driver-guide will take you to the village of Pitlochry which was used to represent North Carolina in the Outlander series. We’ll explore the village and possibly pay a visit to a local traditional eatery, whisky distillery, or bar before returning to Edinburgh where your tour will come to a close.
