Description

We leave Glasgow and begin to follow the trail of the best-known film locations featured in the Outlander TV Series. The journey takes you past Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument to Doune Castle**, or as it’s called in Outlander, Castle Leoch. This formidable building gives you an insight into the living conditions of a Scottish earl in the 14th century. You can also 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, we stop for lunch at the small town of Falkland to relive the first scenes of the show, where Falkland represents 1940’s Inverness. See if you can recognise the familiar sights such as Mrs Baird’s Guesthouses and the Bruce Fountain. Midhope Castle* is your next highlight. The cosy interior of the house has been re-created in the film studios. In reality, visitors can’t explore the ruins of the castle, instead, you can sit on the iconic steps of Lallybroch and wait for Jamie or Claire to walk through the beautiful archway in the courtyard. We then travel the short distance to Blackness Castle. It’s an impressive castle that’s known as the ‘ship that never sailed’ because it resembles a giant stone boat. You have time to walk along the ramparts and explore the fictional headquarters of Jack Randall. Then, travel back in time once more as your driver-guide takes you to charming Culross. In Outlander, Culross posed as the fictional village of Cranesmuir and the home of Geillis Duncan and her ill-fated husband, Arthur. Look carefully while exploring the town's cobbled streets and you may find Claire’s herb garden behind the impressive historic Culross Palace. After a glimpse into landscapes and stories that inspired Outlander, we return to Glasgow in the early evening.
