Itinerary

As soon as you board your vehicle in central Edinburgh, the stories begin: tales of the series, the stars, and the settings. First up is 16th-century Midhope Castle, aka Lallybroch, and then Blackness Castle, the fortress that doubles as Black Jack’s headquarters.

Next, stop in Linlithgow with its ruined palace where Mary Queen of Scots was born—and Jamie was imprisoned in Wentworth Prison. If you’d like, you can choose to explore Callendar House, where the Duke of Sandringham lost his head.

No Outlander location tour would be complete without visiting Culross, or Cranesmuir, a perfect example of how villages must have looked in 18th-century Scotland. Admire towering Mercat Cross, Culross Palace gardens, home to Claire’s herb garden, and, if time permits, the ancient Tuilyies Standing Stones.

Your last stop before you return to Edinburgh is 17th-century Hopetoun House, the residence of the Duke of Sandringham on the show.

We met our guide, STUART at the top of the Royal Mile in the rain. After boarding our bus, we had difficulty seeing any scenery due to the good Scottish mist. However, STUART knew his history, told us tales of the Jacobites, Claire & Jamie,...More

Perfect day full of history and sights!

This single-day coach tour is pretty much as perfect as a tour like this can be. You'll visit a range of historic sights, from nearly-empty, fortress-like castles on cliffs to the most ornate of palaces. You'll see tiny medieval towns and the beautiful Scottish countryside....More

I think it depends on the time of year and what is open. In March, we had about 10 minutes to take photos of Blackness castle because it wasn’t open, it we had an hour and a half to explore Linlithgow palace. I think every... More
