It was during a visit to Scotland that Diana Gabaldon first came up with the idea for her historical romance novels. Immersing herself in the stunning natural scenery and the ancient surroundings, she formed the initial ideas for her renowned book series.
Now, as her words are brought to life on-screen, the Scottish landscape has again become a vital part of the drama. Its verdant glens and imposing castles offer more than just a backdrop but help to propel the characters’ journeys.
The 8-day Lake District and Outlander Journey from Manchester also takes in the best of England’s natural beauty.
Before making the trip up north, you’ll first get to experience the lush surroundings of England’s Lake District National Park in Cumbria. You’ll spend a few days here, taking in the spectacular natural settings. Gaze upon Ullswater lake, among others, and visit the ancient Castlerigg Stone Circle. Then, take a stroll through the woods in Whinlatter Forest Park, and see the views from up high on the Honister Mountain Pass.
From the countryside you’ll travel to the city, getting the opportunity to experience the wonderful streetscapes of Edinburgh. Here you’ll be able to wander about at your own leisure. You can take in all the main tourist attractions, or just relax in a quaint coffee shop and watch the day go by.
Then it’s time to explore the sites of Outlander’s most famous scenes!
The 8-day Lake District and Outlander Journey from Manchester makes sure to bring you to the most recognisable locations from the TV series. You’ll get to see the real-life settings that became Cranesmuir and 1940s Inverness. As well as the Newtonmore Highland Folk Museum, where the replica 18th-century village came in handy for shooting period scenes. You’ll also see memorials to the Jacobite Risings, like the Culloden battlefield, and the Glenfinnan Monument.
And of course, no Outlander tour would be complete without visiting some castles. On this 8-day trip, you’ll stop at Castle Leod, Duone Castle, and Blackness Castle. All of which either feature in the TV series or inspired locations from the story.
