Outlander Season 2 Tour from Glasgow Itinerary

The Outlander Season 2 Day Tour from Glasgow departs promptly at 9.15 am from 266 George Street outside the “Parish Halls” Buildings. Please see the map for the exact location and direction assistance at the bottom of this page.

We will begin by making our way to South Queensferry where we collect our Edinburgh guests and continue on the short journey to Hopetoun House which features as the Duke of Sandringham’s Residence and many of the Paris scenes in Outlander. In addition to Outlander, Hopetoun House is a stunning example of late 17th and 18th-century architecture and is the home of the Earl of Hopetoun and his family. The grounds are also spectacular and form a number of trails through gardens and along the Forth shoreline. You will have the opportunity to explore the House and Gardens after a short historical and Outlander demonstration by your tour guide. (Entrance to Hopetoun House is not included in the tour).

We will then make our way to Linlithgow Palace which was a favourite of the Stewart Kings of Scotland because it was arguably the most impressive palace in the whole of Scotland. It was also the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots as well as her father. It has been a ruin since the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745/1746 and the reasons for this, you will discover on tour. Concerning the Outlander filming, Linlithgow Palace portrays Wentworth Prison, and after an explanation from your tour guide, you will be given around 1 hour to explore the labyrinths at the palace and if there is time, visit the St Michaels Church next door. (Entrance to Linlithgow is not included in the tour).

We will then continue our way towards Callendar House in Falkirk.

Once we arrive at Callendar House where you will find the kitchens which portray where the Duke of Sandringham has his head chopped off in Outlander, you will enjoy a short demonstration of an 18th-century kitchen by the Callendar House guide. (Entrance is free at Callendar House however, they do accept donations). You will then have the opportunity to enjoy lunch at the Callendar House Tearoom or bring a packed lunch and enjoy it in the park that surrounds the House.

Finally, we will make our way for the awe-inspiring Drummond Castle Gardens which became the Gardens of Versailles in Outlander Season 2. You will feel like you are an aristocrat in the French Court as you walk in the footsteps of your favourite characters in the show. The visit around the gardens is self-guided however you will receive a short introduction from your tour guide as they point out the filming sites and a brief history of the area. (Entrance to Drummond Castle Gardens is not included in the tour).

After our visit to Drummond Castle Gardens, we will make the journey back to South Queensferry to drop off our Edinburgh guests before continuing back to 266 George Street in Glasgow, where we aim to reach for 6 – 7 pm (traffic depending).
