The next stop, Hopetoun House, has the honour of featuring as two different locations throughout the TV series. The building’s exterior represents the home of the Duke of Sandringham. While some of the interiors were used for scenes set in Paris.

Finishing off the day are stops at Culross, home of the fictional village Cranesmuir, and Linlithgow Palace. A building of great historical significance, it appears as Wentworth Prison on screen.

This day ends exploring locations that the Outlander production crew have made to look like other parts of the world. The first is Falkland village, which features as Inverness city. The last stop of the day is Dysart, a town that represents Le Havre in Normandy.

The final day of the tour starts with a visit to Craigmillar Castle.

The building featured as the fictional Ardsmuir Prison, where Jamie Fraser and Duncan Innes were inmates. Another location you’ll visit on this day will be Glencorse Old Kirk. Eagle-eyed viewers will recognise this as the church where Jamie and Clare get married.

From one of the TV series’ most romantic scenes, you will visit one of its most brutal. Travelling from Glencorse you will arrive at Prestonpans.

2. Doune Castle / Castle Leoch

Doune Castle / Castle Leoch - Outlander

Doune Castle was built in the 14th century to seat Scotland’s uncrowned King Regent Albany, and the medieval courtyards of the castle showcase the king’s rich tastes. The castle has one of Scotland’s best-preserved great halls and has a stunning 100ft gatehouse.

The striking Doune Castle is the filming location of the fictional Castle Leoch from the Outlander series, featuring in every episode of the show. In the 18th century episodes, Castle Leoch is the home of Calum Mackenzie and his clan. In the 20th century episodes, Claire and Frank pay a visit to Castle Leoch on a day trip, only to discover the castle is in ruins. The scene where Claire, Jamie and Dougal’s party approach the castle courtyard was also captured a Doune Castle.

Doune Castle was the filming location of Winterfell in the Game of Thrones TV series and was also featured in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

3. Blackness Castle / Fort William

Blackness Castle / Fort William

Blackness Castle is a 15th century-old fortress built by the Crichton family. It has been used as a royal residence, a prison and a weapons store. Due to its unusual shape, it is often referred to as ‘the ship that never sailed’. Blackness Castle is the filming location known for representing the fictional Fort William in the Outlander TV series.

As depicted in the Outlander TV adaptation, Fort William is the stronghold where Jamie received lashes from Jack Randall. This is also where Jamie’s father passed away after watching his son facing punishment. During the mid-season finale of series one, Blackness Castle was used as the filming location where Claire was held captive by Black Jack before Jamie breaks into Fort William to rescue her.

Blackness Castle is also known as being a location where scenes from 1990’s Hamlet and 2019’s Mary Queen of Scots was filmed.
