Full description

Learn about Scotland’s fascinating 18th-century history on a walking tour of Edinburgh. See the locations where the TV show Outlander were filmed in Edinburgh, including the iconic Bakehouse Close where Jamie and Claire finally reunited after 20 years apart.

Set off along the iconic and historic Royal Mile to dive into Edinburgh and Scotland's rich history. Listen to your guide tell stories about the Jacobites and learn some Gaelic along your route, understanding in more depth some of the expressions that Jamie frequently uses in Outlander. Learn about Celtic magic and mythology, from the standing stones to the legendary selkies — Scotland is riddled with magical and mystical folklore. It is not hard to imagine you have fallen through the stones yourself when you embark on this walk through Edinburgh’s historic Old Town.

Finish your tour at Edinburgh’s Royal Residence, Holyrood Palace – where Jamie and Claire would have stayed as guests of Bonnie Prince Charlie during the Jacobite uprisings.
