Your Tour Itinerary – Outlander One Day Tour from Inverness:
We will collect you from your accommodation in Inverness at 8.45am and return you there by 6.00pm.
The Morning: Learn about Clan Fraser and MacKenzie. Explore the land they walked, the homes they lived in, the towns they frequented and the places they were buried…
Wardlaw Mausoleum – reputed to be the final resting place of Simon ‘The Fox’ Fraser, the 11th Lord Lovat who is Jamie Fraser’s grandfather in Outlander. We will visit the underground crypt that was said to contain his headless body, smuggled here after his execution at the Tower of London. The Mausoleum was built as a burial place and shrine to the Frasers of Lovat.
Beauly Priory, where Claire met Maisri, the Lovat’s Seer, and where she used to spend time wandering alone.
The real Lallybroch (not the filming location), this Jacobite mansion was built in 1637 and belonged to the youngest Son of the Chief of the Clan Mackenzie in the 17th/18th Century. If Lallybroch existed, this beautiful mansion would be it.
Castle Leod, Seat of the Clan Mackenzie – this beautiful castle is steeped in history and has been home to the Chief of the Clan Mackenzie and his family for the last 500 years. This is the real Castle Leoch (not the filming location).
The Afternoon: Walk the sacred ground in Culloden on the path of the Jacobites on that fateful day…
Culloden House – Bonnie Prince Charlie used Culloden House as his lodging and HQ prior to the fateful battle on Culloden Moor. As such, Culloden House featured heavily in Outlander towards the end of series and book two.
Jacobite Weapons Demonstration: See how the weapons were used in battle and handle them yourself – the Targe, Lochaber Axe, Basket Hilt Broadsword, Flintlock Musket, Flintlock Pistol, Powder Horn, Dirk and the Sgian Dubh.
The Standing Stones and prehistoric burial cairns were built 4000 years ago and include the famous ‘split stone’. It’s these stones near Culloden Battlefield, where the sounds of battle would have been heard on that fateful day when Jamie and Claire said goodbye.
Culloden Battlefield – where the last pitched battle was fought on British soil. See the gravestone for the Frasers who tragically fell on 16 April 1746 along with many other Clansmen.
Why are our tours so different?
Your Tour Guide wears the full Jacobite Kilt: Called a féileadh-mór, this is the style of kilt worn by the Jacobites during the 1745 uprising, and by Jamie in Outlander.
Professional Photographs of your Tour: Throughout the tour we will take professional quality photographs of the group in each location (only with your permission of course), and we will e-mail you a complete photographic record of your Outlander experience within two weeks. Here is a link to photos of recent Outlander clients on a private tour for two who have kindly given us permission to share them.
Two very passionate Tour Guides: We are Andrew and Diane Nicholson, husband and wife team, and we are passionate about this beautiful country, its remarkable history, and sharing it with you. We have a very personal story to share about why we love Scotland so much, why we chose to include the option of Past Life Regression on our tours, and why Outlander affected us both so deeply. You can read our past life story here… Note: sorry, past life regression is not available as part this one day tour, but can be booked separately for another day).
Just six guests per tour: You’ll be touring in our new air-conditioned Mercedes Vito Tourer Minibus, which will seat us in the front and up to six tour guests very comfortably. A small group with two tour guides ensures that everyone’s needs are met throughout the day. We will take very good care of you.
