Journey back to the 18th century Scotland on this private Outlander Tour that departs from Edinburgh. Based on The Outlander TV series which first aired in 2014 and was adapted from the seven historical multi-genre novels by Diana Gabaldon, the tour visits numerous iconic sites from all five series.
Although the literary locations are situated in the Scottish highlands, the filming locations that have been dramatized in the TV series are also located in Scotland and can be reached as part of a day long Outlander tour from the Scottish capital.
Visit Jamie and Claire’s homeland on the Outlander Tour and get the chance to see iconic sites from the first five Series from your very own expert.
Your local guide, fan of both the books & TV series, 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, a picturesque sixth century village on the Firth of Forth that is featured on screen as the home of Geillis Duncan and her husband, Arthur. In the same village, you will also be able to find the beautiful herb garden where Claire’s garden was filmed.
After this its on to the thirteenth century castle in central Scotland that was used for Castle Leoch, home to Colum MacKenzie and the central point for the whole of Clan MacKenzie. This beautiful film location was also damaged during the Jacobite Rebellion.
