Take Me Home To Lallybroch!

, Jun 2022
Fantastic tour! The first stop was Midhope Castle (Lallybroch). It was so beautiful. Thankfully, it was partially open in between filming for the new series so we were able to get up to the front door and the scenes from the show just come flooding back. Next was Blackness Castle (Fort William in the show which posed as Black Jack Randall's headquarters). This castle is stunning, it sits on the edge of the water and is a must see. You're able to go inside and have a look around, well worth a visit. Linlithglow Palace which was used as Wentworth Prison is closed to the public as it goes under construction, but the exterior is beautiful and there is a trail around the Loch which you can walk around. The next stop is Culross, a perfectly preserved town from the 16th century which was used as Craignsmuir. And finally, the last stop is Doune Castle (Castle Leoch in the show). Recently open to the public and a brilliant tour around the castle. I highly recommend this tour for any fan of Outlander. Our tour guide Bruce M was fantastic! Thank you!

Our guide, Jim Scott was wonderful. His knowledge about the show and Scotland brought the entire day to life. He did an excellent job of making everyone feel welcome and part of the day. He also provided helpful information about must see local pubs and dining locations. It was a great day to be in Scotland!

This was a great trip! Even if you don’t know much about Outlander you visit great places. Ross was a great guide and gave us a lot of history and some great outlander stories as well. Even in the rain it was great!

The beautiful old castles and villages we went to. Also the landcape was really great to drive through. It was A pity though that the tourguide didn’t share al lot of information through out the trip. It wasn’t the typical Outlander tour we had hoped for.

Our guide (whose name I can't remember but had long hair and wore a kilt) was very friendly and funny. The van was nice and very clean. The locations were simply unforgettable. I loved that we had the freedom to walk around and explore each location independently, and didn't have to follow the guide. We took amazing photos. Loved this tour.
