Outlander Trail

We start the day in Edinburgh 8.45am and head to the famous Doune Castle past Linlithgow Palace. Doune Castle is not only one of the best-preserved medieval castles in Scotland; it’s also a movie star! Most recently it starred as Castle Leoch, the home of Clan MacKenzie in the hit series Outlander, but it wasn’t the castle’s first time on big screen.  It was used as a film set for Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Winterfell from Game of Thrones to name a few.

After exploring the castle on we go to Fife, one of the remaining ancient kingdoms of Scotland that is often referred to as ‘Scotland in miniature’, because of its stunning nature, turbulent history and unique culture. We make a stop in Culross, the town that was used as Cranesmuir where Claire and Geillis were accused of witchcraft and Claire barely managed to escape before being burned at the stake. It was a close call!

We’ll spend the afternoon in the village of Falkland that was used as 1940’s Inverness in Outlander. It packs a lot of listed buildings for a small village, but if you are not interested in pretty, old buildings you can always try to chase Jamie’s ghost around the square after you have got yourself some lunch.

On the way back to Edinburgh we’ll take in one more Outlander site, Aberdour Castle which was used as the monastery where Jamie recovered after his unfortunate encounter with Jonathan ‘Black Jack’ Randall at the end of season one.

This tour is a must for all Outlander fans!
