Discover the iconic locations and inspirations behind the hit show Outlander on this day tour from Edinburgh. Have lunch in the stunning Callendar House, explore the 15th-century Doune Castle, and pass Linlithgow Palace. Meet your driver in Edinburgh and head out into Scotland's beautiful countryside. Travel north over the iconic Forth Road Bridge and stop in the idyllic village of Culross for a photo stop and morning refreshment break (not included). After leaving Culross, head to the 15th-century Doune Castle, used for many indoor and outdoor scenes in Outlander as Castle Leoch, the fictional home of the Mackenzie Clan. Purchase an entry ticket and spend time exploring the inside and outside of the castle with an audio guide. Stop for lunch at the magnificent Callendar House's drawing-room restaurant. Once you've finished eating, continue your journey, passing Linlithgow Palace, which served as Wentworth Prison in Outlander and has several connections to the Jacobites. Finish your tour at Blackness Castle, known as “The Ship that Never Sailed,” because of its unique shape and coastal location. See where Outlander filmed all its Fort William scenes and explore on your own before returning to Edinburgh.
