Full description
Meet at 8:45 AM before making your way to the beautiful village of Culross where you will stay for 30 minutes. Culross was the filming location for the black kirk, Crainemuir and the gardens of Castle Leoch. 

Afterwards, make your way to the historic town of Falkland which was Inverness in the show. Stay here for 1.5 hours as this is also the lunch stop. Here, you have an excellent choice of cafes, takeaways and restaurants.

Then, make your way to the impressive Doune Castle, the MacKenzie Castle. On the journey, you will pass through the beautiful Perthshire countryside. On arrival at the castle, you will be given 1 hour to explore. 

It is now time for the piece de resistance as you embark on the trip towards Midhope Castle, otherwise known as Lallybroch in Outlander. Midhope Castle sits on the private Hopetoun Estate. It is a ruin and great care must be taken to enjoy your visit as not to disturb the residents and businesses. You will stay here for approximately 20 minutes and there is a donation box on the site. It is not always possible to visit due to the nature of activities on the estate but you will be informed of changes as soon as they are received. 

As per the books and TV series, you then make your way for Blackness Castle. It featured as Fort William in both Season 1 and 2. You will stay at this delightful castle for around 1 hour. 

You will then make your way back to Dalmeny, a short distance from the castle before heading back to Glasgow. You will arrive at around 6:30 PM - 7:00 PM depending on traffic.

It's a rally between some of the most significant places from the TV-show, but most places are just fantastic to visit and experience regardless of Outlander (maybe except from Jamie's/Sam's voice at Doune ;) ). This is an introduction and inspration to go visit these scenes even further, and what an introduction! The tour-guide - Barry! - was amazing with his wits, extraordinary knowledge and obvious experience with guiding us outlanders from place to place. The program was tight, but very well assembled. Also, the travel company meant a lot, and for me, I was so grateful that I was joined with this day's group. This tour will leave you with an awe and a smile, and a whole lot of impressions to digest.

Great Outlander Day

James Kennedy our guide was awesome and our driver Richard was nice and brought us to each place safely. ‘‘Twas raining during our tour, but there’s no way the weather could dampened our day. We started late due to unforeseen events but went to more places than the usual tour -thanks to the organizational wit and humour of James - we got more than what we paid for. Thanks!

Very enjoyable trip for Outlander fans. We covered a lot of ground.

Ross was great. He was a very entertaining and informative guide. We saw many of the sites used in Outlander and he was able to provide a lot of information, both historical and specific to the creation of Outlander. I would definitely recommend this tour.
