Description

Scotland was the setting of the famed novel and TV series Outlander. Recall some exciting scenes of Jamie and Claire’s adventures, with vivid narrative from your local guide and visits to sites featured in the story, including The Canongate Kirk, site of the Tolbooth Jail, and old taverns.

Step back in time to the mid-18th century and bring Diana Gabaldon’s literature to life by discovering the real-life locations of the successful TV series. After meeting your fellow Outlander fans, let your guide lead the way as you explore Edinburgh’s Old Town. Pass iconic landmarks such as Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, that hold stories of Scotland’s rich history, and visit famous Outlander filming locations along the way.

Hear the plot of how Claire, an army nurse from the 20th century, travelled back in time and embarked on an escapade of love and adventure with James Fraser. Experience the Jacobite uprisings and the aftershock through the eyes of the paired lovers, as you visit sites highlighted in the series. Your tour takes you past Canongate Kirk, where the MacKenzie clan leader last saw the couple, Tolbooth Jail, where the Fraser men of Lallybroch were held captive, and the World’s End tavern, which was made famous by the TV series.
