Overview
Getting to Outlander's filming locations on your own can be tricky. On this tour, forget about tackling public transportation or the hassle and expense of renting a car (and driving on the left). With a guide—and perhaps an extra from the show—see key locations like Castle Leoch and Lallybroch come to life. Enjoy seamless travel between each location and a choice of either Glasgow or Edinburgh pickup and drop-off.

Highlights
  • Travel easily to Outlander filming locations
  • Hear insight about each sight from your guide
  • Live like a local by sampling some fine Scottish whisky
  • Convenient choice of Edinburgh or Glasgow pickup
What to Expect
After pickup in Glasgow or just outside Edinburgh (depending which option you select), your first stop is Doune Castle, the filming location for Castle Leoch (and also a star of Game of Thrones). Next, travel to Falkland, a small Fife town that stood in for Inverness, and then to Midhope Castle, which doubled as Lallybroch. If Midhope is closed for entry, you’ll instead visit Hopetoun House, the home of the show’s Duke of Sandringham. Along the way, see the magnificent Scottish landscape and learn about the nation's history and culture. Learn some Gaelic sayings from your guide, and enjoy "a wee dram" of Scotch whisky. With luck, an extra from the show will join to provide insider secrets about the show. Your final stop is Blackness Castle, the filming site for Fort William and some Wentworth scenes. The tour concludes back at your original departure point.

Although the tour was amazing, and the tour guide Johnny made my experience memorable and fun, I won’t book with them again. The experience I had with them at the start of the day due to misinformation and lack of communication from them, led to a lot of disappointment and there

Response from macaulay2287, General Manager at Outlander Day Tour from Glasgow or Edinburgh
Responded 16 Jan 2020
Good Afternoon, Thank you for your review. We are so sorry that your experience in Scotland was tarnished by us. Unfortunately 2019 was an eye opener in terms of trust and a number of our suppliers, namely buses, were sub-standard and the service became unreliable, one day leaving us and our guides stranded at Stirling Castle. We are absolutely devastated that this affected our standard and also communication was lacking due to this and other issues that arose all within the same timeframe, making it difficult for us to manage. We thank you for your patience and as, a result of this last year, we have reigned back our services and offerings back to . what we do best, small, niche, quality tours with experts on Scotland, Whisky, Outlander and the history. We hope to make it up to you in the future. Yours Aye Catriona Stevenson Owner

I chose to go on two consecutive Outlander Day Trips with Slainte at the end of June - the Outlander Tour Day Trip from Edinburgh (Season 1) on the first day and the Season 2 tour on the second day. I was staying in Edinburgh for a few days and wanted to do Outlander things but

Took the one tour from Edinburgh. We had great communication with Catriona as they ended up having to switch our day. It worked out fine for our schedule, and we enjoyed seeing all the sites with Helmut as our guide. My husband who is not that Outlander savvy even enjoyed the

We thought this day was going to go horribly wrong as we had been trying to contact Slainte tours for a couple of days via email and phone and had no luck, then we turned up to the meeting point and waited an hour and a half with no contact from Slainte as to why the bus hadn’t

Good Afternoon, Thank you so much for your amazing review. We hope to see you all on tour with us again in the future! Unfortunately 2019 was an eye opener in terms of trust and a number of our suppliers, namely buses, were sub-standard and the service became unreliable. We have worked hard over the 'quieter' winter season to ensure things are in place more to ensure we can control any issues, should they arise, easier and smoother. Our tours have went back to being small, niche tours with a more quality touch, like we had in the past. Safe Travels and Haste Ye Back. Kind Regards Catriona Stevenson Owner
