1st stop

Blackness Castle

This morning we head for the formidable fortress of Blackness Castle which stood in for Fort William where poor Jamie was flogged in the courtyard in Outlander Series 1. In the past this 15th-century castle was never just a peaceful lordly residence – its enduring roles were as a garrison fortress and state prison. Situated in a stunning location on the southern shores of the Firth of Forth, it is dubbed the ‘ship that never sailed’

2nd stop

Linlithgow Palace

We now travel a short distance to visit Linlithgow Palace. These majestic ruins stand in for the prison entrance and corridors in the scene where Jamie was imprisoned. In the past, Linlithgow was once a favoured residence of the Stewart kings and queens with building work being commissioned by consecutive Scottish monarchs. James V and Mary Queen of Scots were both born here in the 16th century.

3rd stop

Doune Castle

After lunch we head for Doune Castle which stood in for fictional Castle Leoch. Once a royal residence, Doune is full of charm with its 100 ft. high gatehouse and stunningly preserved great hall. Outlander fans will instantly recognise Doune as Castle Leoch, home to Colum MacKenzie and his clan in the 18th century episodes. It also features in the 20th century episode where Claire and Frank visit the castle in ruins on a day trip

4th stop

Culross

Our return journey takes us through the charming village of Culross. This is about as close to stepping back in time to the 18th century as is possible - the rustic whitewashed buildings are well preserved, such as the Town House, where witches were tried and held while awaiting execution. The village was transformed into Cranesmuir, home of Geillis Duncan and her husband Arthur, and behind the impressive historic Culross Palace is where you can find the gorgeous herb garden that Claire works. It’s planted with lawns, herbs and vegetables of the period. We now travel back to Edinburgh.

5th stop

Return to Edinburgh

We return to Edinburgh via the famous Forth Rail Bridge.
