DAY 1:

We leave Edinburgh at 08:45am with stunning views of the Forth Bridge and enter the Highlands through Perthshire, a land of forests, rivers and mountains. Our first stop is Falkland, 1940’s Inverness in the show. We then make a visit to Tibbermore Church, scene of the witch trial from ‘The Devil’s Mark’ Outlander episode. We pass two of the most significant Jacobite battle sites, Killiecrankie and Dunkeld and hear all about their importance. Heading further North into the Cairngorms National Park, we stop at the Highland Folk Museum for lunch (the Mackenzie village) and learn more about the Jacobites and the Redcoats. We spend the night in the capital of the Highlands.


DAY 2:

First stop is Clava Cairns where Diana Gabaldon found inspiration for 'Craig Na Dun'; the standing stones where Claire was transported back to 1743. We visit the famous Culloden Battlefield where Bonnie Prince Charlie led his Jacobite army to their defeat. We lunch in the heart of Fraser country in the small town of Beauly. After a visit to Wardlaw Mausoleum, burial place of the real life ‘Red Fox’ (Jamie Fraser’s grandfather in the books), we head to ‘Clootie Well’, site of ancient Celtic Pilgrimage which Diana Gabaldon mentions in ‘Drums of Autumn’. We will spend the second night back in Inverness.


DAY 3:

A trip into the Highlands wouldn't be complete without a search for Scotland's infamous monster, Nessie. We stop for a quick photo at Urquhart Castle on the banks of Loch Ness. From here we take the stunning drive down the Great Glen with a stop at the Highland town of Fort William for lunch.

Our journey south takes in the breathtaking scenery of Glencoe and Rannoch Moor where we hear about the Massacre of Glencoe and pass through the real life Outlander sets. Our journey takes us through Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park before our final stop, Doune Castle ‘Castle Leoch’ in the series, regarded as one of Scotland’s best preserved Medieval Castles.  We arrive back in Edinburgh early evening.
