Outlander tours depart from your hotel or specified pick up point which means, ultimate convenience when booking a tour with Scottish Guided Tours.
Tours start with a visit to Lallybroch. Only a short drive from Edinburgh and as we wind our way down the country lanes, Midhope Castle appears. As a result an iconic photo opportunity and one that is instantly recognisable awaits.
Blackness Castle is our fantastic next stop. An incredible fortress by the Firth of Forth and an incredible visitor experience.
The “Firth of Forth” is an estuary or bay where one of Scotlands main rivers meets the North Sea. This particular Outlander filming location was built in the 15th century to defend Scotland from attack and as you walk the ramparts, you can feel the history here. In the Outlander TV Series, Blackness Castle becomes the HQ of Black Jack Randall and iconic scenes from Outlander Season One were filmed here. On our guided tour of Scotland, you will enjoy exploring Blackness Castle and from the ramparts, we look across the river to our next stop.
Culross 16th Century Village
We cross the River Forth and the village of Culross awaits. Culross is a 16th-century village used extensively in Outlander and as such, the village is a must-see on any Outlander Day Tour.
Travel back in time
The village of Culross is a genuine opportunity to travel back in time. A 16th-century Scottish trading port and fishing village which has been beautifully preserved. As we wander the cobbled, winding streets you will recognise many different filming locations from the Outlander TV series. At the rear of Culross Palace is the “Castle Leoch” herb garden where Claire is often found in Season 1 & 2. Many of the interiors of Culross Palace have featured in Outlander and you will feel very much a part of centuries past as you wander through this magnificent building. 16th century Culross is a beautiful lunch stop with quaint shops, cafes and a great local pub.
Castle Leoch or Doune Castle as it was known, sits on the fringes of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and is our first stop after lunch. Doune Castle will be very familiar indeed. This 14th century Scottish Castle is Castle Leoch and as such, a must-see.
A marvellous Castle and having never changed from when first built by the Duke of Albany in the 1300s is a great visit. As well as Castle Leoch in Outlander, Doune Castle was all the castles in Monty Python and the Holy Grail and if that was not enough of a claim to fame! Doune Castle is also Winterfell in Game of Thrones! Therefore, this little Castle nestled in the woods near Stirling has become a very popular visitor attraction indeed.
