Full description
Head north from Glasgow on this full-day coach tour, stopping first at Doune Castle, the home of Outlander's Clan MacKenzie. Explore the castle and its grounds before continuing on to Deanston Distillery.

Visit the Royal Burgh of Culross, the site of Claire's herb garden. With its tiny cobbled streets and ancient buildings it is the quintessential example of 17th century Scotland.

See Callendar House, the setting for the Duke of Sandringham's kitchen. Travel on to Linlithgow Palace, used as Outlander's Wentworth Prison. Explore the palace or alternatively, visit the small town of Linlithgow.

A good ride, it just wasn't specified which places we would pay to enter. For the email I received was only 2, but we had to pay in 4 places what I was not expecting. And the guide should be more specific, his strong accent disturbed a little, because at lunch he did not make it very clear that we were to have lunch in such a place and I was without lunch, had to buy some hurry and he kindly let me eat In the van.

The Outlander day tour was amazing. Our driver/guide Andrew was very kind, informative and helpful! We visited all the main attractions of the TV show, such as the Castle Leoch, the prisons, Jack Randall's HQ, the kitchen where Jamie killed Sandringham and Claire's secret garden. I fully recommend this trip!
