Full description
Day 1 Your first visit will be Blackness Castle overlooking the Firth of Forth. The castle was used as the backdrop for Fort William and then Wentworth Prison (or as it in known, Linlithgow Palace). Onwards to Doune Castle, better known as Castle Leoch, home to Colum Mackenzie. The castle has also made appearances in the Monty Python and the Holy Grail film. Stop for lunch and a taste of whisky at the charming little distillery of Deanston. Next, into the Highlands and through Glen Coe with a quick stop at Loch Ness before arriving at your overnight in Inverness. Day 2 Step back in time 4000 years ago at Clava Cairns, the inspiration for Craigh na Dun. Then, continue to Culloden Battlefield, the scene of the last battle fought on British soil. Discover a living history at the Highland Folk Museum and its various time period scenes. Relive one of the first scenes when Jamie's ghost looks up in Claire's room at Outlander's Inverness: Falkland Village. Finally, explore the outside of Lallybroch at Midhope Castle. There will be a quick photo stop before arriving back in Edinburgh.

My daughter and I had a great time on the 2 day Outlander trip. Our guide Jamie was knowledgeable and a great host driver. He was accommodating and entertained our group with pertinent information and history as well as interspersed music that fit the topic of his conversation. We got to see everything promised and our overnight stay in Inverness was nice. I totally enjoyed it. The vehicle was nice but the company should fix the USB charging ports so guests can keep their phones charged. We don’t want to risk missing any of the spectacular photo opportunities.

This tour was absolutely brilliant, not only did we visit so many beautiful Outlander locations, but our guide was also full of interesting Scottish tales, and took us to plenty of other amazing places. Jamie definitely made the tour more fun. Outlander fan or not, I would recommend this tour to anyone :)

We had the beet two days on our Outlander tour, we can't really decide which was the best bit! We expected to see areas where Outlander was filmed and we absolutely did but so much more as well. We totally recommend the trip if you love Outlander and thee opportunity to see more of Scotland. Thank you so much it was all incredible. Thank you so much for everything including the post cards that was such a nice surprise and so very thoughtful! Thank you so much! I only have one comment that could help I'm prove the trip, please outline all of the costs upfront and maybe send a reminder about the trip a couple of days before with details of weather forecast and what Venuses are open etc. We didn't get to see Doune castle for example, it was a bit disappointing but everything made up for it.
