On the Outlander Trail

One day tour

Pick up in Edinburgh, Glasgow or Stirling and leave the city for our first stop at wonderful 15th century Linlithgow Palace (Wentworth Prison in Outlander).

Climb the tower where Mary Queen of Scots was born and enjoy the Loch and Royal Peel grounds.

Visit one of the best examples of Scottish architecture at the imposing Hopetoun House near South Queensferry.

(Outlander filmed here for the Duke of Sandringham’s home and also the apartments of Claire and Jamie in Paris).

Cross the recently opened Queensferry Crossing to the Kingdom of Fife to explore the 17th and 18th century village of Culross on the shore of the River Forth.

Transformed into the fictional village of Craigsmuir and also forms the backdrop to the makeshift hospital scenes in Outlander Series two.

If time allows visit Blackness Castle looking over the Firth of Forth.

This 15th century Fortress provided the setting for the Fort William headquarters of Black Jack Randall and of Jamie’s incarceration.

Overnight in the old town of Stirling and see the National Wallace Monument, the stunning views from Stirling Castle and enjoy the pubs and restaurants of nearby Bridge of Allan. Or return to Edinburgh/Glasgow.

Note – options such as Doune Castle, Drummond Castle Gardens and Falkland Palace can also be offered as a one-day tour.
