'Outlander' Locations Private Tour from Edinburgh or Glasgow

Your private Outlander adventure begins with morning pickup from your central Edinburgh hotel. Meet your expert guide and set off to explore Scotland’s wild Highlands and the filming locations for the popular Starz fantasy series. Along the way, delve into the details of the show, adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s series about a World War II nurse who hops back in time to 1740s Scotland during the Jacobite rising.   Your first stop is the charming village of Falkland nestled in the Lomond Hills. Stroll through the town that served as the setting of 1947 Inverness to see the church that represented Danleigh Parish Church and stop for a photo outside of Campbells Café. Following the guided tour, take some time to independently explore the town – where the young Mary Queen of Scots spent her happiest childhood days! – and grab some lunch (own expense).  After lunch, continue to the medieval Doune Castle – Outlander’s fictional Castle Leoch. Hear about the area's gruesome 18th-century battles that took place during the Jacobite rising, both fictional renditions and real-life warfare. Snap some photos of the castle from the outside or take an optional interior tour (own expense).    Next head to Culross (aka Cranesmuir), where characters Geillis and Arthur Duncan live, and on to Jamie Fraser’s home in Lallybroch. Bonus! Your private tour grants exclusive access to the closed filming location in Lallybroch.  As you travel, enjoy little-known stories about the show’s production. Test yourself with entertaining trivia about clans, warfare, Scottish history and signature Outlander characters!  Your 9-hour tour concludes with an early evening return to your Edinburgh hotel.

We will collect you from you hotel or accommodation at 10am. We will then make our way for our first attraction visit passing by the Outlander Studios in Cumbernauld enroute. We can only see the studios from the outside but it is a wee bit of fun and gives a fantastic insight into how enormous the show has been for the Scottish film industry.The first attraction visit is at Doune Castle which features as Castle Leoch in the filming. The castle has an awesome history that is bound to interest both the Outlander and non-Outlander fans in the group. The castle's other claims to fame are in Mounty Python and the Holy Grail as well as Winterfell in the pilot episode of Game of Thrones. We will stay no longer than 1 hour here.Our next stop is lunch at the Deanston Distillery which also features as the warehouses where Jamie works in Le Havre (cannot see the warehouses) .

The Bothy Café (distillery café) provide a good choice of tasty, fresh and affordable options. After lunch, we will make our way to Blackness Castle which was used as Fort William in the show.
