Description

Visit four Outlander locations in this unique Highlands tour – Culloden , Midhope Castle, Blackness Castle and Doune Castle.

1 Midhope Castle

Visit Jamie Fraser’s ancestral home – Lallybroch .

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. With Lallybroch being an important part of the Outlander story, much use is made of Midhope Castle. Phone (+44) 0131-549-9785 for details and bookings

2 Blackness Castle

Blackness Castle was built in 1440 by Sir George Crichton . At this time, Blackness was the main port serving the Royal Burgh of Linlithgow, one of the main residences of the Scottish monarch.In 1453 King James II annexed the castle due to a dispute with Crichton, and the castle has been crown property ever since.

In 1650 Oliver Cromwell took the castle when he invaded Scotland .

The castle was used as a state prison, holding Cardinal Beaton and the 6th Earl of Angus

Blackness Castle has three claims to movie fame –

  • Outlander – Blackness Castle was Fort William  , where Jamie was whipped by Black Jack Randall
  • Outlaw King
  • Mary Queen of Scots

3 Doune Castle

Listen to Jamie as he guides you around Castle Leoch ( Doune Castle ) on our tour

Originally dating to the 13th Century, Doune Castle near Stirling was a favourite place for Mary Queen of Scots .

Doune Castle has five claims to movie fame –

  • Outlander – Doune was Castle Leoch , and it also features in the 20th century episode when Claire and Frank Randall visit the castle on a day trip.
  • Game of Thrones . Doune represented the castle Winterfell in Game of Thrones.
  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail
  • Outlaw King
  • Mary Queen of Scots

Once a Royal residence, Doune Castle was rebuilt by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany in the late 14th Century.

4 Culloden  – Clan Fraser grave

The Clan Fraser grave is on the site of the Culloden battlefield. It is a poignant scene in Outlander when Claire talks to Jamie , believing he was dead .
