Edinburgh Outlander Tour
“Follow in the footsteps of Claire and Jamie, exploring the beauty of Scotland while visiting some the “Outlander” filming locations.”
Pick up from Edinburgh at a destination of your choice in one of our Executive vehicles by one of our Tour Highlands Guides.
First stop is Doune Castle, a fantastic medieval castle which was used as ‘Castle Leoch’, home of the Clan Mackenzie in Outlander. Doune Castle was also used in the filming of Game of Thrones and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
We then travel to the ancient Kingdom of Fife to visit Culross, this is the town that was used as Cransmuir where Claire and Gellis were tried for witchcraft.
Next stop is Falkland, a quaint village that was used as Inverness in the first episode. See if you can recognise any of the buildings; stand by the fountain you might even see the ghost of Jamie!
Highland Folk Museum
We will continue North, stopping at the Newtonmore to visit the Highland Folk Museum; a number of the houses here were used in the first series. Go back in time to the 18th Century and visit replica turf roofed cottages and crofts.
We continue further North, passing Aviemore at the foot of the glorious Cairngorm Mountains, and onwards to Tulloch Ghru. This is where the Highlanders take Claire from Craigh na Dun to Castle Leoch and is used in the opening sequence of Outlander.
We start to head West now to Castle Leod, home of the MacKenzie Clan, where you can enjoy a walk through the beautiful grounds of the Castle.
A short distance from Castle Leod is the Wardlaw Mausoleum, built in 1634 as the burial place for the Lovat Frasers. Visit the old Church and, you never know, you might even get a look in the Crypt. Here you will learn the mystery of the burial place of Simon “Old Fox” Fraser.
Next we will drive through Inverness, the Capital of the Highlands, towards Culloden Battlefield, where the Jacobites had their last stand in 1746. Immerse yourself in the history, courage, and tragedy of the Jacobite Rebellion while visiting the numerous clan graves.
Finally, we visit Clava Cairns, an ancient burial site dating back almost 4000 years. Touch the split stone, but be careful when touching them, we want to keep you in this century!
