    What to Expect
    Begin your Outlander-themed tour with convenient pickup from your Edinburgh accommodation. Spend your 9-hour day exploring filming locations for the popular series, which was entirely filmed on location in Scotland.

    Arrive at the impressive Doune Castle, located in Stirling, which plays the role of the fictional Castle Leoch, where Colum MacKenzie and his clan live during the episodes set in the 18th century. Continue to the Lothians, wher eyou'll see Blackness Castle, perched on the banks of the river Forth, the setting of Black Jack Randall's headquarters at the show's Fort William. See where Frank and Claire parted ways in the 1940s train station episode, in actuality the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway. Then, visit the fictional Duke of Sandringham's stately home, Hopetoun House in South Queensferry. 

    Journey on to the coastal town of Culross, which was transformed into the village of Cranesmuir, where Gillis and Arthur Duncan made their home. Walk down the 18th century cobblestone alleyways to the verdant herb garden where Claire worked, located behind the historic Culross Palace. During your tour, your guide will fill you in on fun facts about the filming and production of the show, as well as historical information about the real-life locations.

    I'm certainly not an expert on tours and tour guides, but this trip with Alan absolutely could not have been better, unless it had been more than a day that is!!! If you are going to take a tour in Scotland, you MUST have a native Scotlander as your guide and Alan fits the bill
