ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Midhope Castle, South Queensferry, Edinburgh, ScotlandMidhope Castle is one of the most iconic locations for any Outlander fan since it featured as Lallybroch in the TV show. We organise a "walk down" to the castle to allow you the opportunity to take in all the beautiful surroundings and other Outlander sites of interest. Please note that since Midhope Castle sits on a private working estate, and as such there may be times where access is denied out with our control and this is usually down to health and safety concerns if any dangerous activities are taking place on the estate. For respect to the local residents who reside next door the castle, the estate has denied access to the property between the months of December and April 2019. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused but the tours will carry on as planned and we will still visit the other wonderful locations.Duration: 20 minutesStop At: Blackness Castle, Linlithgow, West Lothian, ScotlandBlackness Castle featured as Fort William in the Outlander Series. On arrival, We will visit the inside of the castle where initially your guide will provide a short history and Outlander demonstration. You will then be allocated time to enjoy the rest of the castle at your leisure.Duration: 1 hourStop At: Falkland Community HallWe visit the picturesque village of Falkland which featured as Inverness in the filming of Outlander. We tend to have lunch whilst here and take the opportunity to explore the Village Square and quaint shops dotted around. We do not visit Falkland Palace while here however, during our lunch break, those who wish to visit it, can do so and meet back up with the group afterwards. We do not visit Falkland in the Winter months due to winter opening hours at some of the other properties we visit and shorter daylight hours. We substitute Linlithgow Palace in its place.Duration: 1 hourStop At: Doune Castle, Doune, Stirling, ScotlandDoune Castle featured as Castle Leoch which was the macKenzie Castle in Outlander, home to Collum and Dougal. We visit inside the castle where your guide will give you a brief history demonstration before allowing you to explore the castle on your own using the audio guides (included in your entrance ticket to the castle).Duration: 45 minutesStop At: Royal Burgh of Culross, Culross, Fife, ScotlandCulross was used for 3 seasons so far of Outlander and is rumered again for filming Season 5. It is most famous as being the location for Crainesmuir where Geillis Duncan lived. This is the last stop on our itinerary and we spend it walking through the old 17th century street towards the Mercat Cross and a quick visit to the Townhouse where you will receive a quick talk on Culross's past as well as having the chance to delight in the beautiful imagery by resident photograher Graham Harris Graham. Duration: 30 minutes
