Outlander Adventure 4-Day Tour from Edinburgh
Follow your favourite characters’ journeys on the Outlander Adventure 4-Day Tour from Edinburgh. Recreate all of the iconic scenes on this comprehensive journey through Scotland.
The Scottish landscape has a lot to offer the visitors that travel through it. Along with the picturesque glens and stunning architecture, there is a deep well of history associated with the country. I was these factors that inspired the globally-beloved TV series Outlander. The real-life stories of Scotland helped to shape the on-screen characters and propel their storylines.
Now you have the chance to retrace their footsteps!
The Outlander Adventure 4-Day Tour from Edinburgh gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of the TV series. Throughout the 4-day adventure, you will visit famous filming locations, and learn how true events helped to mould this historical romance.
Day 1 eases you into the Outlander action.
This is when you’ll explore some of the more humble and tranquil settings from the TV series. First, you will visit the quaint village of Culross. During the Outlander production, this area became Cranesmuir. Strolling through it you will see some recognisable buildings from the TV series.
Next, it’s on to Falkland, which represented 1940s Inverness, before heading to Newtonmore Highland Folk Museum. Among many historical treasures, this museum boasts replicas of 18th-century turf-roofed Highland crofts. These appear in the very first episode of Outlander.
The day ends with a visit to Tulloch Ghru, a beautiful wooded area that features in the TV series. Afterwards, you travel on to the real Inverness, where you will spend the night.
Day 2 delves into the rebellious side of Scottish history.
After a quick stop in the majestic Glen Affric, you will travel to the Culloden Battlefield. This is the site of a huge battle during the Jacobite Risings.
Then it’s on to the Clava Cairns. These ancient standing stones are shrouded in mystical history. It makes sense then why they inspired the Craigh na Dun, where Claire travels back in time.
But, no Outlander tour would be complete without some castles!
Thankfully, the Outlander Adventure 4-Day Tour from Edinburgh has you covered! But first, Day 3 begins with a quick trip to Beauly Priory. This is the area where the real-life Lovat Frasers are buried, said to be the descendants of Jamie Fraser.
Then, it’s on to Castle Leod, the real-life seat of Clan Mackenzie. While this building doesn’t feature in the show, it was a source of inspiration for the fictional Castle Leoch.
Day 3 ends with a tour and tasting at a local whisky distillery, and a trip along the shores of Loch Ness.
And the Outlander Adventure 4-Day Tour from Edinburgh leaves the best until last!
Day 4 begins with a visit to Glenfinnan. Here you will find a stunning monument to the Jacobite Risings, surrounded by a spectacular landscape.
Next, it’s on to Doune Castle. While Castle Leod may have been the inspiration, Doune Castle actually features as Castle Leoch on Outlander. This is a great place to get the perfect holiday snap!
Finally, the last stop on this tour is Blackness Castle. Featuring as Fort William, this is another place where you can get some fantastic photographs. From the walls of the castle, you can experience breathtaking views of the Firth of Forth.
This tour will stay two nights in Inverness and one night in Fort William. Unfortunately we can’t provide a list of accommodations as they vary depending on availability and our accommodations department can only start looking for accommodation once a booking has been made.
