This very special private guided tour is for all fans of the popular Outlander TV series. Picking you up at your Edinburgh hotel, we will travel back in time to 1743 and the land of Jamie Fraser during the infamous Jacobite Rebellions.
Heading out of Edinburgh we will cross over the beautiful Firth of Forth and to the ruins of Aberdour Castle. This 12th century castle doubled up in Outlander as the Monastery where Clare and Murtagh bring Jamie to recover from his awful ordeal in the prison. The castle sits with a splendid view of the coast though you might be most interested in the Kitchen and Long Gallery which were used for filming.
Continuing our tour we will visit the quaint village of Falkland which sits amongst the Lomond Hills. Falkland was transformed in Outlander to appear as Inverness in 1946 we can see Mrs Bairds Bed and Breakfast as The Covenanters Hotel situated in the heart of the historic village opposite the notable ‘Bruce fountain’ and Falkland Palace and all the picturesque Lomond Hills in the background.
The parish church on the village square became Dalneigh Parish Church for the tv show and just a little way along the street. Violin Shop Falkland was changed into H. Allingham’s Music Shop whereas Lomond Pharmacy was transformed into Campbell’s Cafe. In a case of life imitating art, as soon as the filming finished, a real life Campbells Coffee House opened up too!
Travelling west now, we Next head to the charming old village of Culross which we all know as being Cranesmuir. This beautiful village is well worth exploring to see where Geillis and Arthur Duncan live.
Next up we will head off to the exterior of Doune Castle which you might know better as Outlander’s fictional Castle Leoch. This is where fact meets fiction as the area is famous for some of the most bloodiest events in the uprisings and we’ll tell you all about the juicy bits!
Finally on our way back to Edinburgh we will visit the home of Jamie Fraser and Lallybroch which in the real world is known as Midhop Castle.
