Outlander Adventure Small Group Day Tour

Follow the trail of the best-known film locations featured in the Outlander TV Series.You journey past Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument to Doune Castle, or as it's called in Outlander, Castle Leoch. This formidable building gives you an insight into the living conditions of a Scottish earl in the 14th century. You can also listen to an excellent audio guide about how this castle was used as a filming location for Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Heading north, your next stop is the small town of Falkland to relive the first scenes of the show, where Falkland substitutes 1940's Inverness. See if you can recognize the familiar sights such as Mrs. Baird's Guesthouses and the Bruce Fountain.

Next is the charming village of Culross. In Outlander Culross posed as the fictional village of Cranesmuir and the home of Geillis Duncan and her ill-fated husband, Arthur. Exploring the town's cobbled streets is like taking a step back in time. Look carefully and you may even find Claire's herb garden behind the impressive, historic Culross Palace. Midhope Castle* is your next highlight. Unfortunately, visitors are unable to go inside the castle, but Jamie's lovely Lallybroch home is still an essential photo opportunity for any fan of the show.You then travel the short distance to Blackness Castle**. It's an impressive castle that's known as the ‘ship that never sailed' because it resembles a giant stone boat. You have time to walk along the ramparts and explore the fictional headquarters of Jack Randall.Your final stop of the day is Linlithgow Palace. Here you have time to enjoy beautiful views to the Forth bridges, walk by the loch, and explore the ruins of Mary Queen of Scots' birthplace. And if you're feeling brave, you can visit the spot where that gruesome Outlander scene took place. From here it's a short drive back to Glasgow.
