  • 4-Day Outlander Trail From Edinburgh

    1. 4-Day Outlander Trail From Edinburgh

    Leave Edinburgh and begin following the trail of the best-known film locations featured in the Outlander TV Series. Your first stop is the charming village of Culross. You continue to the small town of Falkland to relive the first scenes of the show, where Falkland substitutes for 1940s Inverness. In the early afternoon you stop at the Newtonmore Highland Folk Museum, which houses replicas of 18th century turf-roofed Highland crofts. These were used as a setting in the first episode of the show. You then pass Aviemore, where you may recognise the stunning hilly and wooded area of Tulloch Ghru. You arrive in Inverness later that afternoon, which will be your base for the next two nights.  Day 2 starts by visiting Culloden, which plays an important role in Scottish history and the Outlander books. It’s at the Culloden Battlefield where Claire and Jamie said their tearful goodbyes, before ...

    Our 4-day tour with Mac (MacKenzie) was incredible! It is an “Outlander” tour, but the depth of Diana Gabaldon’s books came alive with Mac. His knowledge of Scottish history was exceptional. His interlacing of the books’ fictional aspects with actual events was remarkable. For Outlander fans, this was wonderful. But even more importantly, Mac’s history of Scotland, its people, trials, successes, defeats will all remain with us. Aye, we were transported to another time. Much like Claire was, only in our imaginations. Thank you so much Mac.

    Enjoy a day tour exploring the Port of Mallaig, Glencoe, Loch Lomond, and reach Glenfinnan Viaduct right on time to see the Jacobite Steam Train (also known as the Harry Potter Hogwarts Express) crossing the tall bridge.

Traveling onwards, reach Glencoe, known to many as the location for the Massacre of the MacDonald clan in 1692. Take photos of this beautiful area whilst you learn about its turbulent past. After Glencoe, travel further north to Fort William. Stop for refreshments and perhaps a bite to eat before journeying down the Road to the Isles. Learn about the history of the area as you approach Mallaig, where you will spend time enjoying lunch and its sea views. From Mallaig, travel eastwards to the main attraction, Glenfinnan. Arrive right on time to see the Jacobite Steam ...

    We had a great day with Andy who was very informative and funny. It was a long day but we saw so much of the west side of Scotland. The pace of the trip was perfect and we only had 6 other people in our group.

Couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide than Andrew, great company and really made the day with his personality and extensive knowledge of history and places. He went above and beyond for the group, made sure we didn’t miss anything and everyone got the most out of their trip. Fantastic guy, really hope he is well rewarded for his hard work. Harry Potter fans: don’t climb up the immediate view point path behind the gift shop/toilets from the car park, head through the car park towards the viaduct following the path right up to it and climb the banking for the best photos. You won’t be able to see the train properly from the first view point!

Callum had a great knowledge of the places he took us to. The trip itself, although quite a long day, gave us what we were looking for and the experience we had yesterday was first rate. I would not hesitate to reccomend this tour. Ps music choice was first rate. Moira Woodland
