    Outlander and Jacobite Explorer Tour- map
    This tour is perfect for those die-hard fans looking for the ultimate Outlander experience. Visiting the locations used in 'Cross-stitch' the smash hit book by Diane Cabaldon and subsequently Outlander, the TV programme that followed. Your Guide will take you on a journey to some of the most iconic film sites as well and tell you stories of the famous Jacobite rebellion and other key historic battles. Outlander and Jacobite Explorer Tour- Culloden Battlefield This trip unites the history and legends of each location in its own right as well as exploring much of the Scottish Highlands such as Glencoe, Loch Ness and some of the film's most famous sights such as Doune Castle and Culloden Battlefield.

    DAY ONE We leave Edinburgh, past stunning views of the Forth Bridge and enter the Highlands through Perthshire, a land of forests, rivers and mountains. Our first stop is Falkland, 1940's Inverness in the show. Outlander and Jacobite Explorer Tour- Highlands We then make a visit to Tibbermore Church, scene of the witch trial from The Devil's Mark Outlander episode. We pass two of the most significant Jacobite battle sites, Killiecrankie and Dunkeld and hear all about their importance. Heading further North into the Cairngorms National Park, we stop at the Highland Folk Museum for lunch (The Mackenzie village) and learn more about the Jacobite's and the Redcoats. We spend the night in the capital of The Highlands.

    Outlander Explorer Day Tour from Edinburgh - Castle Leoch DAY TWO First stop is Clava Cairns where Diana Gabaldon found inspiration for Craig Na Dun; the standing stones where Claire was transported back to 1743. We visit the famous Culloden Battlefield where Bonnie Prince Charlie led his Jacobite army to their helpless defeat. We lunch in the heart of Fraser country in the small town of Beauly. After a visit to Wardlaw Mausoleum, burial place of the real life Red Fox (Jamie Fraser's grandfather in the books) and Clootie Well, site of ancient Celtic Pilgrimage which Diane Gabaldon mentions in Drums of Autumn. We will spend the second night back in Inverness.

    Outlander and Jacobite Explorer Tour- Clava Cairns DAY THREE A trip into the Highlands wouldn't be complete without a search for Scotland's infamous monster, Nessie. We stop for a quick photo at Urquhart Castle on the banks of Loch Ness. From here we take the stunning drive down the Great Glen with a stop at the Highland town of Fort William for lunch.

    Outlander and Jacobite Explorer Tour- Glencoe We travel south and take in the breathtaking scenery of Glencoe and Rannoch Moor where we hear about the Massacre of Glencoe and pass through the real life Outlander sets. Our journey takes us through Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park before our final stop, Doune Castle aka Castle Leoch in the series, regarded as one of Scotland's best preserved Medieval Castles. We arrive back in Edinburgh approximately 5.30pm.
