Departure Time

9:00 AM
Your private Outlander adventure begins with morning pickup from your central Edinburgh hotel. Meet your expert guide and set off to explore Scotland’s wild Highlands and the filming locations for the popular Starz fantasy series. Along the way, delve into the details of the show, adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s series about a World War II nurse who hops back in time to 1740s Scotland during the Jacobite rising.  

 

Your first stop is the charming village of Falkland nestled in the Lomond Hills. Stroll through the town that served as the setting of 1947 Inverness to see the church that represented Danleigh Parish Church and stop for a photo outside of Campbells Café. Following the guided tour, take some time to independently explore the town – where the young Mary Queen of Scots spent her happiest childhood days! – and grab some lunch (own expense). 

 

After lunch, continue to the medieval Doune Castle – Outlander’s fictional Castle Leoch. Hear about the area's gruesome 18th-century battles that took place during the Jacobite rising, both fictional renditions and real-life warfare. Snap some photos of the castle from the outside or take an optional interior tour (own expense).   

 

Next head to Culross (aka Cranesmuir), where characters Geillis and Arthur Duncan live, and on to Jamie Fraser’s home in Lallybroch. Bonus! Your private tour grants exclusive access to the closed filming location in Lallybroch. 

 

As you travel, enjoy little-known stories about the show’s production. Test yourself with entertaining trivia about clans, warfare, Scottish history and signature Outlander characters! 

 

Your 9-hour tour concludes with an early evening return to your Edinburgh hotel.

Anyone and Everyone who loves Outlander needs to do this with Gerry. He is not only extremely knowledgeable about the show and the books, every site you see he also knows the actual history of. He is highly entertaining and has inside information that most Outlander tour guides don't know. This is a must must must do.

My guide was Gerry and he personally made this experience unforgettable. He was dressed in his kilt and was immediately wanting to know where we wanted to go and see and guided our trip to our interests. He was so knowledgable about the books as well as the tv series. He gave us so many stories and facts that our day was filled to the brim .I can not imagine this tour without Gerry.

Tony was amazing. He was very knowledgeable on all things Outlander and took us to several of the most iconic sights. He was fun to hangout with. Never a dull moment.

This was a fabulous day trip we took August 18. The kilt-wearing Tony gave us a well-informed experience. He is truly a Scotsman that loves his country and it shows in his knowledge of the 'Outlander' series and the facts he presented about the show and the locations where it is filmed. It was a glorious day! Tony exposed us to the real jewels of Scotland - and we will never be the same! You won't be disappointed taking a tour with Tony. Thanks again for a wonderful, fun, and informative experience. Cheers! Sissy, Ronda and Carlos

The tour was outstanding. Gerry our tour guide was so knowledgeable about the show and exactly what happened at each site, producing pictures and pointing out exactly where everything happened. But more importantly, the beautiful places we saw in the Scottish countryside could not be equaled and Gerry gave us the history and character of these great little towns. This is a day that cannot be missed.
