Outlander Private Experience from Edinburgh
Outlander is a worldwide hit TV series which tells the story of Claire who travels through a standing stone from the 1940’s to the 1740’s right into the middle of the Jacobite Rebellion.
Claire meets her husband to be Jamie and the sparks fly from the start. On this tour we will visit some of the filming locations for the series.
We will start the day in South Queensferry to visit 2 locations, Hopetoun House and Midhope Castle residence for the Duke of Sandringham and Jamie’s home Lallybroch then on to Blackness Castle, just outside Bo’ness. You will see how this castle was depicted in the TV series, but we will also discuss the real history of the castle. From there we will move to Linlithgow Palace where Jamie is imprisoned in the TV series. Linlithgow Palace was the residence of many royals including Mary Queen of Scots.
From Linlithgow, we will drive into Falkirk and visit Callander House where the Duke of Sandringham met his demise. From Falkirk, we will head into Stirlingshire to visit Doune Castle (Castle Leoch). Doune castle was not only used for Outlander but was also used for filming Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Game of Thrones.
From Doune, we will head back East towards the Kingdom of Fife. Here we will visit the village of Culross. This beautiful village is trapped in time with its old cobbled streets and colourful buildings.
If you want to get in about the castles etc this will probably be all we will have time for, but if you just want to get a quick feel for them and move on then we can add other filming locations to this tour. We can adapt the tour on the day as requested.
