Full description

Enter the world of the 'Outlander' TV series on this day trip from Glasgow aboard a climate-controlled mini-coach. Stop at the town of Falkland and Culross. Step back in time as you take in views of the castles of Midhope*, Stirling, and Blackness. 

Depart from your meeting point in Glasgow and journey past Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument to Doune Castle, or as it’s called in Outlander, Castle Leoch. This formidable building gives insight into the life of a Scottish earl in the 14th-century. 

Listen to an excellent audio guide about how this castle was used as a filming location for 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail.' Heading north, your next stop is the small town of Falkland to relive the first scenes of the show, its used as the 1940’s Inverness. See if you can recognize the familiar sights such as Mrs. Baird’s Guesthouses and the Bruce Fountain.

Drive to Midhope Castle* where you can stop outside and get a picture of Jamie’s lovely Lallybroch home. Make your way to Blackness Castle, an impressive castle that’s known as the ‘ship that never sailed’ because it resembles a giant stone boat. 

Travel to the charming village of Culross - the 'Outlander' village that posed as the fictional village of Cranesmuir, and the home of Geillis and Arthur Duncan. Feel like you're travelling back in time as you explore the town's cobbled streets.

Look carefully to spot Claire’s herb garden behind the impressive, historic Culross Palace. From here listen to stories that inspired Outlander on the drive back to Glasgow where you'll arrive around 6:30 PM.

Our first trip to Scotland. We didn't rent a vehicle. The mini bus tour was the way to go. We did three tours on this trip. The Outlander tour covered three castles and other filming sites. The tour was excellent. Our guide was awesome. He was very friendly and knowledgeable, had a wonderful personalty. Tour left on time and ended on time. This time of year it did get darker earlier but we were able to get everything in that was advertised. The mini-bus was comfortable and clean and drove well.

A fun trip exploring one of the most beautiful castles in Scotland. Whether a fan of the show or even watched it or not, the tour is still very fun and informational. Our tour guide Ben was lovely and had a light sense of humor, he even was part of the series in a few episodes. Happy to have chosen this as my first tour around Scotland as it was really a memorable one.

A most enjoyable and entertaining tour. I initially hesitated about booking as I am no longer an Outlander follower but the variety of castles and villages visited, not to mention the knowledge and wit of the driver, exceeded my expectations. The Outlander film sites have a history of their own and I particularly enjoyed the villages of Falkland and Culross. Thank you George for a great day.
