Enjoy a fully-guided tour of iconic film locations in Edinburgh from the TV series "Outlander," made in Scotland. Locations include Castle Leoch, Captain Jack Randall’s Stronghold and Lallybroch.
What to Expect
The Outlander television series first aired in 2014 as an adaptation of the 7 historical multi-genre novels by Diana Gabaldon.
The literary locations are situated in the Scottish highlands, while the filming locations dramatized in the TV series can be reached as part of a day tour from either Edinburgh or Glasgow.
Visit Jamie and Claire's homeland on the Outlander Tour and get the chance to see iconic sites from the first series courtesy of your very own expert. As part of the Outlander Tour, guests will also hear readings from Outlander at certain locations.
Your local guide, a fan of both the books and TV series and a former member of the Scottish BAFTA, will discuss information from the Outlander TV series, show you how the books and reality differ and recall incredible tales of legend and local history that could come right out of the books.
Your first destination of the day will be the Highland village of Cranesmuir. In reality this is a picturesque 6th-century village on the Firth of Forth, featured on screen as the home of Geillis Duncan and her husband Arthur. In the same village, find the beautiful herb garden where Claire's garden was filmed.
From here, head to the 13th-century castle in central Scotland used for Castle Leoch, home to Colum MacKenzie and the central point for the whole of Clan MacKenzie. This beautiful location was damaged during the Jacobite Rebellion.
See the Railway Station, where Claire and Frank alighted from the train and Captain Jack Randall’s Stronghold.
Finally its off to the 15th-century castle featured on screen as Lallybroch — Jamie Fraser's childhood home. As this is a private property, this tour is a great way to access the beautiful location, which was also used for the scene where Jamie is arrested.
Your Outlander tour finishes back at your hotel/pick up point in Glasgow or Edinburgh in the early evening.
