Full description

Enter the world of the 'Outlander' TV series on this day trip from Glasgow aboard a climate-controlled mini-coach. Stop at the town of Falkland and Culross. Step back in time as you take in views of the castles of Midhope, Stirling, and Blackness. 

Depart from your meeting point in Glasgow and journey past Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument to Doune Castle, or as it’s called in Outlander, Castle Leoch. This formidable building gives insight into the life of a Scottish earl in the 14th-century. 

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, its used as the 1940’s Inverness. See if you can recognize the familiar sights such as Mrs. Baird’s Guesthouses and the Bruce Fountain.

Drive to Midhope Castle where you can stop outside and get a picture of Jamie’s lovely Lallybroch home. Make your way to Blackness Castle, an impressive castle that’s known as the ‘ship that never sailed’ because it resembles a giant stone boat. 

Travel to the charming village of Culross - the 'Outlander' village that posed as the fictional village of Cranesmuir, and the home of Geillis and Arthur Duncan. Feel like you're travelling back in time as you explore the town's cobbled streets.

Look carefully to spot Claire’s herb garden behind the impressive, historic Culross Palace. From here listen to stories that inspired Outlander on the drive back to Glasgow where you'll arrive around 6:30 PM.

I had a fantastic day, loved getting to see where they filmed the show and learn about the history of it all. Was sad to know we couldn’t go to one of the stops but understood they are filming season 7 at that time. I would definitely do the tour again to see the sights again and might even do the four day tour that would be awesome.

Overall experience was exciting. Unfortunately, we were unable to see one of the castles , however we were informed in advance by the service provider. Being foreigners from a different culture, it was a bit difficult to understand the Scottish accent and were lost in some of the stories at times :-) even though our language skills are advanced. Thank you!

Our guide was Stuart and he was awesome! He looks exactly like Jamie from the outlander series and all the people kept saying so! His tour was excellent! The sights were great, plenty of time to see everything! You can tell how much Stuart loves his job and his country! Highly recommend!!! Best thing we’ve done since coming to Glasgow! Thanks again!
