Itinerary

1 . Lallybroch – Midhope Castle

The first location on this tour is Lallybroch – Midhope Castle, ancestral home of Jamie Fraser . Outlander scenes were shot at Midhope Castle on the fringes of the Hopetoun Estate near South Queensferry.

Midhope was built in the 15th Century by John Martyne, laird of Medhope. It was rebuilt in the mid 1600s and remains much the same today.

The interior of Midhope is inaccessible .

Midhope Castle, a 16th-century tower house, is used as Lallybroch(also known as Broch Tuarach) in Outlander. Left to Jamie by his parents, Brian and Ellen, Lallybroch is also home to Jamie’s sister, Jenny, her husband Ian Murray and their children. Lallybroch is a crucial part of Jamie Fraser’s life in Outlander . In Outlander Jamie calls Claire Sassenach as a term of affection .

Jamie Fraser t-shirts and gifts are available online .

2 . Doune Castle

Doune Castle is Castle Leoch in Outlander and also Winterfell in Game of Thrones and featured in Monty Python’s Holy Grail. Visit Doune Castle on a unique private tour . Check availability by phoning us now on 07305-294773 or contact us online . Toll free number 1-866-233-2644

Our photo tours of Scotland set off from Edinburgh and feature visits to the top scenic locations in the Highlands of Scotland .

Doune is one of the best preserved medieval castles in Scotland. This private tour starts at 10 am and it includes pick up and drop off from Edinburgh , a driver/guide , a stay of about an hour at each castle plus a visit to Craigh na Dun . Your guide will give details of the history of each castle , information about the Outlander filming plus all the other films made at Doune Castle including Monty Python and the Holy Grail .

Behind the scenes access Visitors to the castle can get details about filming inside the Great Hall and courtyard of the castle . Insider access Take the audio tour of the castle narrated by Monty Python’s Terry Jones and Outlander’s Jamie Fraser ( Sam Heughan ) .  The castle was used as the set for Winterfell in the TV series Game of Thrones(2011–present), an adaptation of the A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels by George R. R. Martin. The castle was also used as “Castle Leoch” in the TV adaption of the Outlander series of novels. The Great Hall is 20 metres by 8 metres , and 12 metres high to its timber roof, again a 19th-century replacement. Large windows light the hall, and stairs lead down to the three cellars on ground level.

3 . Craigh na Dun

Finding the exact spot of Craigh na Dun is difficult but the site of filming is at Kinnloch Rannoch in Perthshire. On the south side of the Dunalastair Reservoir in Tay Forest Park under the gaze of the spectacular Schiehallion mountain, this is scenic Highlands at its best. You will recognise the mound from the roadside and it’s just a short walk out to the site. Kinnloch Rannoch was used in numerous other scenes , mainly because it’s one of the most remote and beautiful areas in the country.

The standing stones in the TV series are set up fro filming , but they are not there permanently . We visit the Clava Cairns , near Culloden , as an example of real standing stones .

The mystical and enchanting spot where Claire and Frank first come across the standing stones that soon after were to propel Claire back in time. They have been an ever present since, including in Season four . No standing stones actually exist here but I think they are based on a combination of Clava Cairns and Callanish , both of which are outstanding Scottish tourist sites. Even without the presence of the colossal pillars, this spot in Perthshire is a fantastic selection as Craigh na Dun with stunning views of the Perthshire countryside.

4. Culloden battlefield

Culloden battlefield is the scene of the the tragic battle where the Scottish army was decimated by a much larger English army .  The Clan Fraser grave is at Culloden in the scene where Claire talks to Jamie , believing that he was dead .

Jamie Fraser fought in this battle and ended up a prisoner.
