An Inspiring Journey North...
Join us on our brand new small-group Outlander Experience and explore the locations where the series was filmed and inspired from.
Our first stop of the tour is the imposing Blackness Castle*. A perfect viewpoint for the Firth of Forth and often referred to as 'the ship that never sailed', this 15th-century castle stood in for Fort William in the show, as you explore this castle at your own pace you may be reminded of Jamie's heart-wrenching incarceration.
Next stop is Wentworth Prison or Linlithgow Palace; the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, you'll have time to wander the grounds of this impressive building and admire its ornate architecture.
We continue on to Doune Castle*, which plays a starring role in the show; Castle Leoch home of Colum MacKenzie and his clan. You might also remember it from as Castle Anthrax from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Listen to Jamie as he guides you through his uncle's home.
We travel north into the Highlands and visit Glen Coe, which features in Outlander's opening credits. One of the most impressive places in Scotland, you'll be in awe as you stand in this striking glen.
We'll have a quick stop at Loch Ness as we continue north to our final resting stop for the day.
Explore the famous battlefield of Culloden*...
Our second day begins with a visit to Clava Cairns, approximately 4,000 years old, these are one of Scotland's more impressive sights as you can get up close to the standing stones and burial chambers.
We then continue on to Culloden*, a
sombre place to visit as you can walk the battlefield of the quick and bloody 1746 battle.
We will journey south to the Highland Folk Museum for lunch and to get a
flavour of how Highland people lived and worked from the 1700s up until the 1960s. It was an ideal choice for various period scenes in Outlander.
As we head further south to Fife we will visit the village of Falkland. Here you can relive one of the first scenes of the TV series, in which Jamie's ghost looks up at Claire's room. You'll recognise this village as 1940s & 1960s Inverness.
Our final stop is Midhope Castle
, the external location for Lallybroch, the family home of Jamie Fraser. This 15th-century castle is largely intact outside, but sadly derelict within - so we will have a quick photo stop here before returning to Edinburgh
