Full description
Day 1 Your first visit will be Blackness Castle overlooking the Firth of Forth. The castle was used as the backdrop for Fort William and then Wentworth Prison (or as it in known, Linlithgow Palace).

Next, into the Highlands and through Glen Coe with a quick stop at Loch Ness before arriving at your overnight in Inverness. Day 2 Step back in time 4000 years ago at Clava Cairns, the inspiration for Craigh na Dun. Then, continue to Culloden Battlefield, the scene of the last battle fought on British soil. Discover a living history at the Highland Folk Museum and its various time period scenes. Relive one of the first scenes when Jamie's ghost looks up in Claire's room at Outlander's Inverness: Falkland Village. Finally, explore the outside of Lallybroch at Midhope Castle.

We had the beet two days on our Outlander tour, we can't really decide which was the best bit! We expected to see areas where Outlander was filmed and we absolutely did but so much more as well. We totally recommend the trip if you love Outlander and thee opportunity to see more of Scotland. Thank you so much it was all incredible. Thank you so much for everything including the post cards that was such a nice surprise and so very thoughtful! Thank you so much! I only have one comment that could help I'm prove the trip, please outline all of the costs upfront and maybe send a reminder about the trip a couple of days before with details of weather forecast and what Venuses are open etc. We didn't get to see Doune castle for example, it was a bit disappointing but everything made up for it.

very nice vacation on vacation :-)

we put this experience into our 9-day Edinburgh stay and as Outlander TV series fans we were completely satisfied. of course you can watch more and more and also wish more time, but we saw everything important, the stay was well coordinated, only the lunch stop on Friday was a bit amAdW for almost everyone but OKeee. To be highlighted is the B&B in Inverness, really only a few minutes walk from the "City" - we had a fantastic room with bathroom en suite (despite that we had booked a shared bathroom - so as a tip: just let it get there). Culloden is impressive and in Falkland we can recommend the small cafe on the street side of the Covernant Hotel, where there is a delicious cafe as well as beautiful handicrafts - including drawings by Claire and the ghost scene at the fountain by a local artist - for little money. are actually cards 20x20cm, but we are now framing them ..

We were a very small group in the bus, but maybe that's why we got an extra good group feeling. We ate together, and still chat with each other daily for weeks after the trip, sharing photos, etc. Our guide Brian was wonderful, funny and helpful. We were also lucky with the weather - sun and warm. Wonderful nature experiences and of course very exciting to see the filming locations from the TV series.
