Your Outlander Tour Itinerary:
Day One: The filming locations around Fife, in the Heart of Scotland…
Lallybroch, the filming location for Jamie’s home.
Jack Randall’s Fort William HQ, the heart-breaking scene of Jamie’s flogging.
The Railway Station where Claire and Frank said their goodbyes in wartime London.
The Home of the Duke of Sandringham, used both indoors and outdoors for several Outlander filming locations.
Day Two: More filming locations…
The French Port of Le Havre where Jamie and Claire’s ship docked when they escaped to France.
Cranesmuir Village and Square where Geillis lives and where the young lad’s ear was hammered to the post. You’ll walk through the gardens where Claire and Geillis gathered herbs and see Jamie and Claire’s bedroom.
Black Kirk, the secluded ruins where Jamie and Claire discover the reason for the young boy’s illness.
The Kelpies (a wee extra treat for you) – enjoy a wander around the largest equine structures in the world. They are magnificent! After all, you can’t come all this way and not see the Kelpies.
Day Three: Journey north to the Highlands, taking in more filming locations en-route…
The Chapel where Claire and Jamie hid from the Redcoats and operated on Rupert’s eye.
The Gardens at the Palace of Versailles, used for several scenes in series two including one with Claire’s red dress. This is also where Black Jack Randal bowed before King Louis XV.
Craigh na Dun, where you’ll stand on that very special hill and take in the breath-taking views and the tangible energy surrounding you…
Arrival in the Highlands.
Day Four: The Clan Lands and Loch Ness – the Outlander book locations…
Urquhart Castle, on the banks of Loch Ness – The last of the government troops garrisoned here during the Jacobite Risings and blew up the castle when they departed. Urquhart’s iconic ruins remain, offering glimpses into medieval times. Walk down to the shores of Loch Ness and look for the ‘Water Horse’ which entranced Claire.
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.
Glen Ord Distillery was founded by the Clan Mackenzie. You can enjoy a whisky tasting if you wish to (price not included in your tour), or just browse the shop and explore the exhibition. If you’ve come all the way to Scotland, why not enjoy a wee dram…
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).
Inverness, as it was in 1745 – step back in time as we take you on a historic walking tour through the streets of Inverness to visit the buildings that were standing during the mid-18th century. This includes an ancient church where Jacobite prisoners were executed after the battle. You’ll also see where the fountain (outside Mrs Bairds) stood in Inverness until 1953.
Dinner – Seven Course Traditional Scottish Food Experience with a wonderful Scottish couple, Jane and John. Enjoy a Scottish culinary dining feast created by Jane. You’ll be served Cullen skink, haggis, cranachan, oatcakes, crowdie and much more, along with some local beers. During the evening John will entertain you with tunes on the bagpipes (he has a special set of pipes that can be played indoors) and his Gaelic. As a Pipe Major, John has a vast knowledge of bagpipe music and its history which he will share with you. At the end of the evening you’ll enjoy a dram of whisky and some Scottish Tablet while you toast in the ancient Gaelic language. This fabulous three hour experience finishes at 9pm and is included in your tour.
Day Five: Culloden and the Standing Stones…
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.
Past Life Regression – this is included in your tour, and is also optional, so it’s at your discretion whether you’d like to experience it or not. There are many who feel a deep connection to particular places, yet are unable to explain why. They find that exploring their past lives answers many questions for them. For information on what Past Life Regression is click here. You are welcome to download our free Past Lives Clues Workbook, which may help you begin to join the dots.
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.
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.
Afternoon Tea at Culloden House, where you’ll enjoy an indulgent Afternoon Tea in the magnificent Adam Drawing Room; a feast of cakes, pudding, scones and sandwiches, all included in your tour.
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.
Day Six: Over the sea to Skye…
Prepare to journey through the wild, remote, breathtaking Highlands, where every mile is beautiful. Lochs, Heilan’ Coos, castles, mountains and glens…
Eilean Donan Castle – after several spectacular viewpoints we’ll stop for a break at this iconic castle which is one of the most famous in Scotland. It was used as a filming location for ‘Highlander’, ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’, ‘The Master of Ballantrae’, ‘The New Avengers’, ‘Loch Ness’ and ‘James Bond – The World is Not Enough’.
Then we’ll travel over the sea to Skye…
