A great day despite one castle not bejng accessible on the day. Eric was an amazing guide; personable, funny and very knowledgeable about Scottish history. Would recommend the trip to all Outlander fans and also those interested in castles in general. As a note the tea-room in Culross needs a mention. At the end of a cold day this unpretentious little place offered the best cheese scones and coffee we've tasted in the UK by far. Thanks for a grand day!

Had a great day but would recommend going during the summer as Hopetoun House and Midhope Castle were closed so we missed those stops. Our guide Neal was fantastic though and very patient with answering a lot of historical questions. My boyfriend got a lot out of the tour despite having never seen Outlander. Neal happily took the back way to Doune Castle so that we could stop at the Stirling Memorial for my boyfriend who’s interested in the SAS.

Bobby was an excellent guide. He knew so much about the areas we visited and told us information in an entertaining way. He was also excellent with any questions asked. The timings for each site visit was great, enough time to explore, visit shops if needed and enjoy the surroundings.

We had a small group who got on well. Andrew, our tour driver was extremely knowledgeable and enjoyable to spend the day with. Good duration and enough to see. Definitely recommend this tour.

Unfortunately due to Covid some places were closed. The driver was very good and did his best to provide photo opportunities. He was very knowledgeable and has some interesting anecdotes.
