"Yvonne was our tour guide for the Outlander tour and she was amazing! We had a great time; she not only made it fun, but was also very informative about Scottish history and its connection to the book and show. Highly recommend this tour! "

Itinerary


We leave the capital behind at 8.45am and make our first stop at Linlithgow Palace known as Wentworth Prison in the show. We then visit Doune Castle, one of Scotland’s best preserved medieval castles and used as the setting for Castle Leoch in Outlander. The castle is also featured as Winterfell in Game of Thrones and Monty Python’s Holy Grail.

Our journey takes us on to the Kingdom of Fife, an area of great historical importance and the ancestral home of Scottish monarchs. We make a stop at Culross, where Claire was accused of witchcraft in the village of ‘Cranesmuir’. This charming village is the most complete example of a 17th and 18th century burgh in Scotland today.

After lunch we will continue to the village of Falkland, used for filming 1940’s Inverness. With over 28 listed buildings it gives a good representation of this period. Our final stop is at Midhope Castle*, the real-life Lallybroch, arriving back in Edinburgh early evening.

*There are dates where Midhope Castle is closed for filming and Blackness Castle will be substituted.
