Full description
Depart Edinburgh and journey northwest to Midhope Castle (April 1 to September 24), site of Lallybroch Castle in the time travel TV series "Outlander." Next, stop in the Royal Burgh of Linlithgow and enjoy a photo stop at Linlithgow Palace (Wentworth Prison in "Outlander"), originally a royal retreat between Edinburgh and Stirling Castle. Continue to the 14th-century country pile of Callandar House, where ties to Rome's northern frontier in Europe at the Antonine Wall have been traced. Following in the footsteps of Claire and Jamie, visit Falkland, Outlander's Inverness. Many of the streets here were used as filming locations in Outlander, including when Claire sees Jamie's ghost. Move on to the Royal Burgh of Culross to discover a tiny village nestled on the coast of Fife. Arguably the best example of a 17th-century Scottish village, the gardens at Culross were featured in "Outlander" as Claire's herb garden, as was the mercat cross (market cross) from Cranesmuir Village. Saunter along the cobblestone streets and see the quaint Biscuit Café before stopping for photos at Tuilyies Standing Stones (time permitting). End the day at South Queensferry for beautiful views over the Forth and photos of the Forth Rail Bridges.

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.

Historically enlightening and so much fun!!!

Our guide Conner was absolutely amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed his company and were sad to end the day and have to say good-bye. The combination of his knowledge of facts/history and humour were delightful and added so much more to the experience then what we had expected for the day. I would recommend this tour and Conner as the host to everyone!
