See the villages where Outlander is filmed with a massive fan of the show.

I've been taking people to villages in Fife for a few years and when two years ago people started to tell me they recognised them from a show called "Outlander" I thought I better watch this and instantly became hooked and I love to show fellow fans the places that were used for filming "Inverness" and "Cranesmuir" as well as some other places if you don't mind short visits.

The backdrop for Inverness is Falkland, a beautiful village with it's own palace which has the oldest tennis court in the world and some very magnificent rooms. We can have a drink in Campbells coffee shop featured in backdrop for filming.

Cranesmuir is the village of Culross, the best preserved 17th century village in Scotland, all they had to do was paint the village a drabber colour for filming.

If you want to see more and don't mind a bit less time in each place we can visit Lallybroach (Midhope House) and Castle Leoch (Doune Castle) and Wentowrth Prison (Linlithgow Palace).


We leave Edinburgh at 9am and we can take a route that depends on whether you want to see lots, or see some of the best places in depth. We will visit the villages used to film "Inverness" (Falkland) and Cranesmuir (Culross) which are the most beautful of all the places I would say, we can take in the sights, see where Outlander scenes are filmed and find out more about the history of these beautiful villages. These two villages done properly could take a whole day if you want to relax a bit, but if you want to see more and don't mind short visits to many places we could also visit some of the following:

* Lallybroch (Midhope House) which is a ruined building and due to safety precautions we can not venture inside. To visit here requires a £10 supplement paid directly to the estate on the day.
* Castle Leoch (Doune Castle) for an outside view.
* Fort William Prison (Blackness castle) where Jamie was whipped).

The schedule depends on what you want to get from this tour

A Recent Review of this tour

You have heard of saving the best for last?? Well we had 7 tours booked this trip and while every guide was wonderful in their own way we definitely got lucky with having the absolute best one in our last port. Will was super funny and very informative. It was truly like hanging out with a friend for the day. He kept the pace going perfectly all day and even added a little extra time at the end to help me find some open shops so I did not return home empty handed from Edinburgh. I highly recommend Will!!
