2016 Outlander Experience Tour
Daily Itinerary
Day 1
You will be personally met at Edinburgh
Airport and whisked off in our deluxe mini
coach and head straightway to Linlithgow, a
short drive from the airport.
Here we check into Bo’mains 4 star
Guest House with sweeping views
down to the River Forth. We will have
time to relax in this beautiful location
after your journey taking in the vistas
which are refreshing for both the body
and the soul.
In the afternoon we tour Linlithgow Palace once
a favored residence of the Stuart Kings and
the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. This
location stands in for the prison entrance and
corridors where Jamie was imprisoned.
The Boness & Kinnel Railway station
was transformed to double as a wartime
London railway station where Claire and
Frank have this dramatic farewell scene.
We will enjoy a trip on this very same
Steam Train and experience the thrill of
a bygone era.
Dinner in Linlithgow & then return to Bo’mains Guest House for the night.
Day 2
This morning we go to Hopetoun
House, the largest stately house in
all of Scotland. This is the location
for the dueling scene with Jamie
against the Macdonalds.
We will take a guided tour of this
magnificent house.
Midhope House is the location for this
scene at the steps of Jamie and Claire’s
beloved Lallybroch. The castle is
actually a ruin and the inside scenes of
the castle were shot at the studio in
Cumbernauld. You will be able to get
photos of the outside.
.
Standing, looking out over the Firth
of Fouth near Edinburgh is the
impressive Blackness Castle. This
15th century fortress provides the
setting for the Fort William
headquarters of Black Jack Randall.
The castle is called “the ship that
never sailed” as It was built
in the shape of a ship. We will take a
guided tour of this historic castle.
Day 3
The stunning Doune Castle plays a leading role
in the show and substitutes for the fictional
Castle Leoch, home of the Clan MacKenzie.
In the tour of this castle we will find out how
grand banquets would have been prepared in the
kitchen and served in the Great Hall.
Not far from Doune Castle is the City of
Stirling which at one time was the Capital
of Scotland.
Here we visit the mighty Stirling Castle which
is steeped in a thousand years of history and
one of the most interesting castle tours in
Scotland.
Culross, a rustic town in Fife, (the
fictional Cranesmuir in the series).
It shows to some degree what such
a town in 17th & 18th century
Scotland would have looked like.
A stroll along it’s charming
cobbled pathways seems to put us
back in time. Behind the Palace is
where Claire worked in the herb
gardens of fictional Castle Leoch.
Day 4
Glencorse Old Kirk, near Edinburgh.
This setting is where the wedding of
Jamie and Claire takes place.
A lush parkland, with a lake, and a
beautiful garden, Glencorse is a
wonderful place and one of the most
romantic wedding venues
imaginable.
Preston Mill is one of the oldest
working water-driven mills in
Scotland. Jamie managed to stay
under water while the Redcoats
were looking for him. We will
see the mill operating and enjoy
the scenery surrounding the mill.
Edinburgh- Princes Street is one of
the most famous streets in Europe. We
give you some free time for shopping
and exploring on your own and
afterward meet up for dinner.
Day 5
The town of Falkland was substituted
for the 1940’s Inverness in one of the
series first scenes.
You can stand by the Bruce Fountain
where Frank witnesses the ghost of
Jamie looking up at Claire in the
window.
The Covenanters hotel is the location of Mrs.
Baird’s Guesthouse where Claire and Frank
started their honeymoon. Your heart will start
racing with excitement the instant you see it.
Just down the street you will see the shop
window where Claire bought her first vase.
Falkland Palace was the favourite retreat
of the Stuart monarches especially Mary
Queen of Scots who visited often. Mary
played tennis on one of the first tennis
courts built in 1541 and which has
survived to this day.
We finish our day with dinner at the
Waterfront Hotel overlooking the harbor
in Anstruther. This small fishing town
has the most picturesque harbor of the
many that are along the beautiful coast
of Fife.
Day 6
Glamis Castle, considered to be the
finest example of Baronial architecture
in all of Scotland, should never be missed
on any tour of Scotland Expert guides
conduct an incredible tour of the castle.
Princess Margaret, the present Queens’
sister, was born in the castle and there are
many mementos of visits of the Royal
Family over the years.
Loch Rannoch in Perthshire, right in the
heart of Scotland, is the location for the
standing stones of Craigh Na Dun. The
whole Outlander epic story swirls around
the stones when Claire is transported back
to 1734. Even now the location of the
stones is somewhat of a mystery but I will
guide you to the exact spot. The stones
were removed after filming but I wouldn’t
be surprised at all if they suddenly appear
again.

Day 7
After breakfast and a short distance
away to the north is the famous House
of Bruar, a wonderful emporium of
Scottish foods and wares, sometimes
known as ‘The Harrods of the North’.
Great for looking and shopping with
unusual Highland foods & items.
The Highland Folk Museum is where
you will see replicas of Highland crofts
(homes) and learn how people lived &
worked in the 18th century. This site
was used for several scenes including
the MacKenzie village, Dougal
collecting rent and Jamie and Claire
sheltering in the first episode.
Continuing on we visit the famous
Battlefield of Culloden, where Bonnie
Prince Charlies’ fateful campaign came
to an end. Their new impressive Visitor
Center is extremely well designed and
brings us back historically to the time of
the battle. Claire knew that this battle was
coming very soon and she warned Jamie
of the impending doom.
We stay the night at the beautiful
Invernairne Hotel in Nairn by the
shores of the Morey Firth. It affords
us a beautiful view over the water
and an excellent walk along the
promenade in the evening. In the
north of Scotland in the summer it
stays light until 11.00 PM. and
sometimes even later.
Day 8
Heading west from Nairn we are on the hunt for the Loch Ness Monster. We will visit the
Loch Ness Centre where we will see a video presentation of all the attempts made to find
the monster since the 1930’s.
After our visit to the Loch Ness Exibition
we board the Jacobite Warrior for a cruise
on Loch Ness. Our two hour cruise will
take us up the full length of the loch with
a stop at Urquhart Castle which occupies a
strategic spot overlooking the Loch. You
can climb the tower of the castle and get a
magnificent view of the loch and keep an
eye out for Nessie, the loch Ness Monster
The theater in the visitor center has a very
good video of the history of the Castle.
There is also a lovely tea room for a quick
and delicious refreshment break.
Day 9
Fort William was the headquarters of
Black Jack Randall and Jamie was
captured & imprisoned here in episode 5.
Along with other forts, Fort William was
built to pacify the highland clans. There is
very little left of the Fort and Blackness
Castle was used as a stand-in for the
series. The town is the second largest in
the highlands and a busy place. You will
have free time to see this lovely town and
enjoy the unique shops along the High
Street with their special Scottish products.
Journeying south we travel through the
famous Glencoe, one of the most
dramatic landscapes in Scotland. The
glen is a magnet for avid hill climbers
throughout the year. We will stop for a
lunch break at the Clachaig Inn deep in
the heart of Glencoe. Sitting outside on
their deck and being surrounded by
mountains is somewhat of a spiritual
experience.
Leaving Glencoe we drive across
Scotland from the west coast to the east
coast and arrive at the City of Perth. We
check into the Huntingtower Hotel. The
hotel is a Grand Edwardian building
where we can have dinner, relax and
enjoy the surrounding beauty of the
grounds of the Hotel.
Day 10
After a good night’s sleep and our full Scottish breakfast we transport
you to Edinburgh Airport for your flight home. It’s time to bid a fond
farewell to Bonnie Scotland and we hope that you have enjoyed every
moment and have had the experience of a lifetime. ‘Haste ye back’!
