Together, we explore the incredible historical sites used as filming locations in the hit TV show, offering a superb door-to-door service and Scotland’s best private tours.

Lallybroch Castle

Outlander tours depart from your hotel or specified pick-up point, which means ultimate convenience when booking.

Tours start with a visit to Lallybroch. Only a short drive from Edinburgh and as we wind our way down the country lanes, Midhope Castle appears.

As a result, an iconic photo opportunity and one that is instantly recognisable awaits.

Blackness Castle

Blackness Castle is our fantastic next stop—an incredible fortress by the Firth of Forth and an excellent visitor experience.

Explore this magnificent Castle which doubles as the Fort William HQ of Black Jack Randall.

The “Firth of Forth” is an estuary or bay where one of Scotland’s main rivers meets the North Sea.

Outlander Tour Scotland

This particular Outlander filming location was built in the 15th century to defend Scotland from attack, and as you walk the ramparts, you can feel the history here.

In Outlander, Blackness Castle becomes the Fort William HQ of Black Jack Randall. Iconic scenes from Outlander Season one were filmed at Blackness.

On our guided tour of Scotland, you will enjoy exploring Blackness Castle, and from the ramparts, we look across the river to our next stop.

Blackness Castle has defended Scotland for centuries. Various Outlander scenes have been filmed in this outstanding Scottish Castle.

Culross – 16th Century Village

We cross the River Forth, and the village of Culross awaits.

Culross is a 16th-century village used extensively in Outlander, and as such, the village is a must-see on any Outlander Day Tour.

                    The village of Culross is a genuine opportunity to travel back in time. A 16th-century Scottish trading port and fishing village has been beautifully preserved.

As we wander the cobbled, winding streets, you will recognise many different filming locations from the Outlander TV series.

Geillis Duncan’s parlour and house, Jacobite encampments and many more locations on or Outlander Tour Scotland

Time Travel at Culross

At the rear of Culross Palace is the “Castle Leoch” herb garden, where Claire is often found in Seasons 1 & 2.

Many of Culross Palace’s interiors have featured in Outlander, and you will feel very much a part of centuries past as you wander through this magnificent building.

16th century Culross is a beautiful lunch stop with quaint shops, cafes, and a great local pub.

Doune Castle

As it was known, Castle Leoch or Doune Castle sits on the fringes of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and is our first stop after lunch.

Doune Castle will be very familiar indeed.

This 14th century Scottish Castle is Castle Leoch and, as such, a must-see.

Doune Castle is Castle Leoch. A unique 13th century Castle near Stirling and a great stop on our private tour of Scotland.

Outlander Tour Scotland

A marvellous Castle and having never changed from when first built by the Duke of Albany in the 1300s is a great visit.

As well as Castle Leoch in Outlander, Doune Castle was all the castles in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Suppose that was not enough of a claim to fame! Doune Castle is also Winterfell in Game of Thrones!

Therefore, this wee castle nestled in the woods near Stirling has become a top-rated visitor attraction.

Private Tours of Scotland

Above all, our Outlander Location Day Tours from Edinburgh are not only an opportunity to visit the locations used in the filming of the hit TV series but most importantly, to build a bigger picture of Scottish history.
