An Outlander plot twist ?? Stand in this exact spot where Frank confronts the Highland stranger!!

Castle Leoch – Doune Castle 

A marvellous Castle and having never changed from when first built by the Duke of Albany in the 1300s is a great visit for all Outlander fans. As well as being instantly recognisable as Castle Leoch from Outlander Season 1-Eps 2.

Outlander Tours from Edinburgh
Doune Castle is Castle Leoch. A unique 13th century Castle near Stirling and a great stop on our private tour.

Castle Leoch Kitchen and Grounds Season 1

Doune Castle was also all the castles in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Suppose that was not enough of a claim to fame! Doune Castle is also Winterfell in Game of Thrones!  Therefore, this wee castle nestled in the woods near Stirling has become a top-rated visitor attraction for Outlander Tours of Scotland and a must-see on our Scottish Highlands Outlander Tour.

Private Tours from Edinburgh

Outlander Scotland Tour 

We leave Pitlochry relaxed and ready to travel deeper into the Scottish Highlands. This is a Jacobite country and the Highland Clans’ land, so where better to experience it than the Highland Folk Museum. The best Scottish Highlands Outlander Tour

Outlander Tours to Scotland
The Highland Folk Museum is a great stop and a genuine step back in time.

 

Highland Folk Museum 

In 2014 the 1700s, Highland Township was used as a filming location for  ‘Outlander’ Series One. Little did we know the huge success it was going to be. The Highland Folk Museum brings to life the domestic and working conditions of earlier Highland peoples. Delve into the past and discover the real, living Highland Folk Museum.

Outlander Highland Folk Museum
Seasons one and two of Outlander were filmed extensively and the Highland Folk Museum.

 

Culloden Battlefield and Visitor Centre

Outlander is based around the Jacobite uprising of 1745 and the subsequent fortunes of many Scottish Highlanders. The battle of Culloden was the culmination of the Jacobites struggle to reinstate the exiled King James.

Culloden Moor

Claire’s knowledge of the future is crucial to the plot of Season 1 & 2. The aftermath of Culloden and the brutality experienced by the Highland families change Scotland forever. Culloden Visitor Centre is a poignant, emotive and superb visitor experience.

Clava Cairns

The neolithic burial chambers and standing stones of Clava Cairns are truly wonderful end to the day. Clava Cairns or the Prehistoric Burial Cairns of Bulnuaran of Clava are three Bronze Age cairns. A hugely significant and exceptionally well preserved prehistoric site, Clava Cairns is a fantastic example of the distant history of Highland Scotland, dating back about 4,000 years, and Diana Gabaldon’s influence on the stone at Craigh na Dun.

Isle of Skye private tour
The Standing Stones of Clava Cairns are as magical as they are mysterious and are said to be the influence for Craig na Dun.

 

Craigh na Dun 

Excavations had found evidence for farming on the site before any of these monuments were built. The cairns directly replaced the settlement, and it even seems possible that some of the material used to build them had been taken from demolished houses. The stones here pre-date Stone Henge and are a truly wonderful experience.

Time Travel is optional!!

You Won't Regret a Tour with Niall! In the spring of 2018, our party of 3 adults visited Scotland for the first time. We arranged a day-long private tour outside of Edinburgh with Niall McOwen. Before arrival, we exchanged emails about our expectations. Some attractions the three of us asked to see were probably the usual tourist fair for first time visitors, but Niall also took us to places we didn't even know to ask about! Mr. McOwen was considerate, interesting, knowledgeable and truly concerned about the desires of our group. Around mid-day, the restaurant he chose provided us with good food, a bit of shopping and some time for us to get to know each other better. Getting to see this beautiful country through his eyes helped me to understand more of Scotland, its history and its citizens. If we are ever blessed to visit Scotland again, Niall will absolutely be included as part of our trip.

An Epic Day to Remember! Scottish Guided Tours offers some preplanned itineraries, but their specialty is in working with you to customize a single or multi-day tour to fit your specific needs. We’d been to Scotland in the fall of 2017 and started planning our second trip as soon as we got back. We wanted to go to places a bit off the beaten track this time, so contacted Niall McOwan of Scottish Guided Tours. Niall built on our “must see” request, and suggested some other sites that worked well with our schedule. He picked us up from our hotel, and gave us an absolutely epic day to remember! One highlight was visiting an Old Kirk that is the final resting place of the famous Highlander Rob Roy MacGregor. Just behind the Kirk, we hiked up a trail that took us to a rallying point overlooking Loch Voil. A stone cairn at marked the place where Clan MacLaren would have lit a fiery cross to summon their men to battle. The view from this spot was just breathtaking! Throughout the day, Niall filled us in on the significance, history, and lore related to our stops. In addition to taking us to absolutely stunning viewpoints and ruins, he knew the best places to stop for lunch, coffee, and restrooms. 🙂 Our entire experience with Scottish Guided Tours from planning to the drop off back at our hotel was smooth, professional, friendly, knowledgeable and fun! I can without any hesitation recommend this service to anyone looking for a custom tour in and around Scotland.

Best of Scotland & Edradour Distillery Day Tour We spent a really entertaining and informative day with our guide, Niall ( Neal in Gaelic). He took us north to see the three bridges from different eras that span the Firth of Forth. It was fun to see a train go over the old one. Then we were off to Dunkeld, the river Tay, a wee hike in the woods to find a salmon ladder (alas,, no salmon running at that moment), coffee at a charming shop in Dunkeld, a tour at Edradour Distillery, the only remaining hand made single malt whiskey in Scotland, and the smallest to boot. We had a quick look at the village of Pitlocry, and ended the day at Loch Tummel to see The Queen's View. One more coffee stop, and it was back to Edinburg. But the best part of this fine day was the time we spent with Niall, who was a font of information, jovial and witty. As one does, we compared cultures, talked about everything under the sun, and laughed together much of the time. If you are looking for a tour guide with a warm demeanor and a kind and helpful personality, Niall is the best.

Excellent 3 Day Scottish Highlands and the Isle of Skye tour!! I had friends visiting from America and rather than drive them around myself , I decided to book a tour with Scottish Guided Tours! Wow! Our guide Niall was incredible!! Polite, funny, punctual, organised and so friendly. We were picked up from our Hotel, Niall had organised water for us, helped us source lovely B&B’s on Skye and the vehicle we travelled in was new, comfortable and spacious. I am Scottish but I can’t believe the information I learnt and my friends were blown away by the sites we visited and the brilliant stories Niall told us. Not to mention “Skye“ which my friends are now crazy about. If you’re visiting Scotland you must use Scottish Guided Tours & Niall!

Extraordinary and outstanding! With all the great tour guides I have hired, Niall stood out. He was with our family from Nov. 21-25. He picked us up at the Edinburgh airport and we started touring immediately. seeing the Kelpies, South Queensferry and the Forth Bridges all in the first afternoon. After that, we spent four more days together while he regaled us with history, legends and fairy stories. He listened and did not interrupt. Niall seemed to know how much to talk and how much to listen. He played the most beautiful Scottish music as we drove. We felt immersed in Scottish history and culture. He even wore his kilt for two of the five days. He went out of his way to accommodate our dietary needs. (It really helped that he is vegan himself.) We traveled through ancient woodlands, burial sites, battlefields, castles, fairy pools and fairy glens, mountain ranges, Outlander, Harry Potter and other film sites. We ended up enjoying him so much that we considered him part of the family and wanted him for the rest of our stay. Finally, we all noticed how kind Niall was with not only us, but with everyone including other drivers, restaurant staff and hotel staff. I only hope that he will be available when we return. We thought that Scotland was magical and that magic was mainly because of him. We would never tour with anyone else. Niall is the very best.
