Outlander Palaces and Jacobites Tour from Edinburgh
US$54.34
Overview

If you’re addicted to the saga of Claire and Jamie, no trip to Edinburgh would be complete without an Outlander location tour. Covering at least seven locations, including Black Jack’s headquarters, Wentworth Prison, and Lallybroch, this tour gets you right to the heart of Outlander’s world—complete with insider gossip and trivia from your local guide.

What to Expect

As soon as you board your vehicle in central Edinburgh, the stories begin: tales of the series, the stars, and the settings. First up is 16th-century Midhope Castle, aka Lallybroch, and then Blackness Castle, the fortress that doubles as Black Jack’s headquarters.

Next, stop in Linlithgow with its ruined palace where Mary Queen of Scots was born—and Jamie was imprisoned in Wentworth Prison. If you’d like, you can choose to explore Callendar House, where the Duke of Sandringham lost his head.

No Outlander location tour would be complete without visiting Culross, or Cranesmuir, a perfect example of how villages must have looked in 18th-century Scotland. Admire towering Mercat Cross, Culross Palace gardens, home to Claire’s herb garden, and, if time permits, the ancient Tuilyies Standing Stones.

Your last stop before you return to Edinburgh is 17th-century Hopetoun House, the residence of the Duke of Sandringham on the show.

Perfect day full of history and sights!

This single-day coach tour is pretty much as perfect as a tour like this can be. You'll visit a range of historic sights, from nearly-empty, fortress-like castles on cliffs to the most ornate of palaces. You'll see tiny medieval towns and the beautiful Scottish countryside....More

Good sites but tour guide who did not add much

Being an outlander fan I was exited for this tour but unfortunately it did not meet my expectations as our guide for the day basically drove us places and left us to work it out ourselves. To start with the bus was late at the...More

Packed with sights: a very fun excursion!

I’m in Edinburgh early and have a few days before my event starts, so I signed up for this tour. It’s an all-day affair, and it’s well worth your time. Our guide, Stewart, was incredibly knowledgeable about Scottish history, and made every part of the...More

I think it depends on the time of year and what is open. In March, we had about 10 minutes to take photos of Blackness castle because it wasn’t open, it we had an hour and a half to explore Linlithgow palace. I think every... More
