Your week-long Outlander tour starts in the cobbled streets of our beautiful capital Edinburgh, where Claire and Jamie dramatically reunite after 20 years.
While you’re in Edinburgh, we recommend visiting the iconic Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace before your driver-guide takes you to your accommodation for the night: Balmoral Hotel, a victorian masterpiece situated in central Edinburgh, allowing you to browse the city’s incredible bars, restaurants, and shopping.
The second day of your Outlander tour starts by leaving the capital and heading to Midhope Castle, which is the setting for ‘Lallybroch’, Jamie Fraser’s family home.
From there, we’ll head to Blackness Castle, which represents the town Fort William in the Outlander series (also a prominent location in the latest Mary Queen of Scots movie before traveling to the charming town of Culross. The town was the setting for the village of Cranesmuir in the Outlander series and feels like you’ve been transported back to the 18th Century and is also where you will find Claire’s Herb Garden.
Finally, you and your driver-guide will travel to the town of Pitlochry, which was used to represent North Carolina in Outlander and is also the location of your accommodation for the night: Knockendarroch Hotel & Restaurant.
Today we’ll visit Dunkeld Cathedral before driving to Loch Tummel to the Queen’s View Point. Finally, we'll head to Kinloch Rannoch; the famous site of the standing stones where Claire was first transported back in time in the Outlander series.
If we have time, you might want to visit one of the nearby whiskey distilleries before returning to Pitlochry and the Knockendarroch Hotel & Restaurant for the night.
On day four, we leave Pitlochry and head north to the Scottish Highlands, stopping on route at the ruins of Ruthven Barracks, which was used by the Redcoats in Outlander before visiting the Highland Folk Museum, which fascinatingly showcases how the Highland people lived and worked from the 1700s until the 1950s. The open-air Museum was also rather fittingly used in the filming of Outlander.
You and your driver-guide will then continue your journey north, stopping on route at the Clava Cairns, a 4000-year-old brutal ground with standing stones before reaching Inverness: the capital of the Highlands.
Your accommodation for the night will be Loch Ness Lodge, on the banks of (you guessed it) Loch Ness.
Today, we’ll visit the famous Culloden Battlefield, where the Jacobite Rising of 1745 came to a tragic end before exploring Fort George, which was built following the battle in case the Jacobites ever rose again.
After stopping for a spot of lunch, we’ll continue our Scottish travels by visiting Cawdor Castle (Cawdor still features in Shakespeare’s renowned play ‘Macbeth’, before returning to Inverness and your accommodation for the night.
On our last night in Inverness, we’ll explore the iconic Loch Ness (where if you’re lucky, you might even get a glimpse of Nessie the Loch Ness Monster) before driving to Fort William and The West Highland Museum, which has an array of fascinating information on the Jacobites to provide real context to the Outlander series.
If we have time, you can take a gondola trip up the Nevis Mountain Range before spending the night in Fort William at the simply sublime Inverlochy Castle Hotel.
On the final day of our Outlander tour, we’ll travel through Glencoe, where (weather permitting) you may want to take a hike with your driver-guide to explore the beauty and incredible scenery on offer before driving to Loch Lomond (the largest freshwater lake in the UK).
Finally, we’ll travel to Glasgow (Scotland’s cultural hub and largest city) where you may have time to visit a selection of the city’s incredible tourist attractions before the end of your tour.

Perfect!!! The best tours we have ever experienced. It was the best experience we ever had; the guides were extremely knowledgeable and just fun to be with. They couldn’t do enough for us and were so reliable.
Our driver-guide was extraordinary with a wealth of knowledge and an easy-going, good-humored personality. Our guide knew all the secret spots to show you the real Scotland and it's glorious. I give my very highest rating and thanks for a tremendously enjoyable vacation.
