Are you a fan of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander books and the subsequent hit Starz TV show of the same name? Do you want to enjoy the landscape that inspired the books and stand where Jamie Fraser (played by the gorgeous Sam Heughan) and his beloved Claire Randall (played by the equally beautiful Caitriona Balfe) stood? Thankfully the scenery and history needed not be made up, Scotland really is that breathtaking and our history is that complex and harsh. Many of the locations filmed are real places (with different names) that you can visit.

 

We are offering specialised Outlander Tours which provide the history of Scotland, views of the scenic highlands and the opportunity to visit some of the fantastic locations filmed. Visit Castle Leoch (Doune Castle), Falkland (the filming location for Inverness), Culross the site of the gardens and the Black Kirk, The stunning glens of Scotland including Glencoe and Rannoch Moor where much of Craig Na Dun was filmed, Loch Ness and a final stop on the island of Arran where you can see very real standing stones (maybe you will pass through time and meet your own Jamie).

 

Whisky plays a huge part in the Outlander series and Claire often uses it as a tool to escape some of her situation. It is also used to celebrate many happy event and you can enjoy joining us at Slainte Scotland (Gaelic for cheers) to toast each wonderful location with a dram of Scotch in your hand, complimentary of course. If alcohol is not your thing, we can provide soft drinks instead, but the tradition saying of Slainte (pronounced Slanj) is compulsory…..and I am not kidding. Also included with us is bottled water, snacks and light refreshments on the bus, we may be experiencing outlander, but that doesn’t extend to 18th century cuisine or having your ear nailed to a pole if you step out of line...you hope.

 

In all seriousness though, we would love to welcome you on an Outlander tour of Scotland with us and you will be sure to have a trip of a lifetime and leave a piece of Scotland with you forever.

 

As well as whisky, there is the native language of Scot’s Gaelic which is used to perfection throughout. Although we are not native Gaelic speakers, we have learned much of the language and will be happy to teach you a couple of key phrases to take back home with you. We can also assist with you learning about the Gaelic culture and what makes it so special...to us anyway.

 

Please note that we can help advise every element of your itinerary including accommodation (we can recommend a few and organise bookings), airport transfers and extra activities such as a boating tour on Loch Ness etc.

Outlander Tours are now a very popular tour product in Scotland. It is ideal for all Scottish Tourists because it also shows off a variety of Scottish castles, abbeys and scenery. The Outlander Tours are based around the filming location but they also go through the Scottish Highlands, Lowlands and many other historic Scottish sites. The Outlander Tours are definitely a great way to experience Scotland, seeing the filming location or possibly stumbling onto live filming is a bonus that has happened before.
