Falkland / Inverness
Falkland / Inverness

The first stop on the Outlander Adventure 1-Day Tour from Glasgow is Doune Castle.

This impressive structure should be recognisable to Outlander fans as Castle Leoch, home of Clan Mackenzie. As it is a quintessential example of a 14th-century castle, it is no wonder that Outlander isn’t Doune Castle’s only on-screen appearance. It also shows up in the comedy classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Next, you’ll visit Falkland. This small town transforms for the TV series and represents the much larger city of Inverness. Something similar also happened to Culross. This small village is virtually unchanged since its humble beginnings back in the 16th century. Because of this, the Outlander production considered it to be the perfect location for Cranesmuir. This small fictional village has appeared numerous times throughout the life of the TV series. As you walk through the streets you are sure to recognise some of its buildings. You’ll even get to see the herb garden where Claire worked.

From here, the tour brings you to Midhope Castle. Instantly recognisable as Lallybroch, it is the ideal place to get the perfect holiday snap!

The next stop is Blackness Castle. This formidable structure plays the part of Fort William, headquarters of ‘Black’ Jack Randall. To help take your mind off of the horrible deeds that took place here, why not treat yourself to some beautiful views from the castle walls.

Maintaining the theme of depressing locations, the Outlander Adventure 1-Day Tour from Glasgow brings you to Linlithgow Palace. This building plays a very important role in the history of Scotland. Born within the palace’s walls was one of the country’s most iconic heroes: Mary Queen of Scots. However, the Outlander TV series uses the palace for a much less high-class. Instead of housing monarchs, it features as Wentworth Prison, where Jamie was an inmate.

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.

6. 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.
