Outlander Day Tour Itinerary
- 8.45 Meet at 266 George Street in Glasgow where we aim to leave at 9 am sharp. We will then make our way to Dalmeny Train Station to pick up our Edinburgh guests for 10 am. Most of the Outlander sites are in this area so it will not impact our time in doing 2 pickups and we find it a more efficient way of allowing people to join a tour regardless of where they are staying.
- We will then make our way to Culross and plan to stay there for 30 minutes. (The scene of the black kirk and the gardens of Castle Leoch)
- Afterwards, we make our way for Falkland, the scene of Inverness, We stay here for 1 hour.
- We then make way for Doune Castle, the MacKenzie Castle. We stay here for 1 hour.
- It is now time for the piece de resistance as we visit Midhope Castle, otherwise known as Lallybroch. It is a private estate (and a ruin) and we will stay here for approximately 15 minutes.
- As per the books and the tv series, we then make way for Blackness Castle where we will stay for around 1 hour. It is a real delightful castle.
- We then make our way back to Glasgow and Edinburgh where we say our goodbye's and haste ye back to Scotland soon!
