Outlander Tours from Inverness, Edinburgh & Glasgow

These are our small group Scottish Outlander Tours from Inverness (Also Edinburgh and Glasgow). You can build the tour to suit, because it can be one, two, three or four days in length and it can depart from whichever of these cities suits you best. You and your party will travel in one of our comfortable seven-passenger vehicles. These tours are tailored to your individual needs. As a result, if the books are what you love then we will happily tilt the tour in that way. Alternatively, if it is the TV show that floats your boat we can still deliver with our guided tours of Outlander filming locations.

Inverness Tours – Outlander Tours and Hugh Allison

Inverness Tours has offered Scottish Highland Tours since 2003, and Outlander Tours based on Diana Gabaldon’s novels since 2007. I met Diana while I managed Culloden Battlefield. I loved the books, and so created a tour based upon Outlander locations and places. Diana generously checked and endorsed the tour content and gave permission for this link to her blog – http://www.dianagabaldon.com/blog I took her on a private four-day tour of these sites in 2011, as a result refining our tour further. She said –

“Doug and I had the most wonderful time touring with Hugh! Wonderful company in himself, he has a vast fund of fascinating information, and was able to show us things we would never have found by ourselves. We’d go with him again in a heartbeat!”

In 2013 we started researching and visiting film locations. This was because the TV show was going to be good news for Inverness Tours. I had, therefore, been handpicking a team of expert guides all also committed to the Outlander story. That is why we can deliver what we truly believe are the best Outlander Tours in Scotland available today.

Outlander Inverness Locations

The Inverness Outlander One Day Tour is our signature tour. We visit Culloden Battlefield and Clava Cairns. In the afternoon we take you to an historic house because it exactly resembles Lallybroch as described in the Outlander books. There we will entertain you with a weapons demonstration while you enjoy tea and traybakes. We end the day in Beauly with a look at the ruined Priory and a visit with some hairy coos. It was, of course, hairy coos that Claire used, to help rescue Jamie from Wentworth Prison. Our other day out from Inverness takes us west, past world famous Loch Ness to the Atlantic coast. You will see Urquhart Castle, Dundreggan, some brochs and St Kilda’s Churchyard. As a result of our route through the stunning western Highlands we can also make landfall on the Isle of Skye.

Filming Location Tours

Our Edinburgh / Glasgow Outlander Day Tour and Two Day Tour include the best loved Outlander filming locations regardless of your start city. Outlander Tours from Inverness also visit these same sites but generally on day three and day four. Therefore the order in which you will enjoy these sites will alter depending on starting location. The full list of sites can be found on the tour itinerary pages. In summary, however, one day are places within easy reach of Glasgow and Edinburgh (like Lallybroch and Castle Leoch). The other day visits filming locations along the highway between Inverness and the south (like Falkland and Craig na Dun)

Clanlands

Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish have written a new book – Clanlands. Why not combine an Outlander Tour with a visit to your own ancestral clanlands for the best kind of emotional journey. One that you will therefore never forget. Your clan tour can often include a look at the castle which was the original seat for the Clan Chief. Because we know some modern day Clan Chiefs it is sometimes possible for you to meet your own chief. We also visit other places of significance, like towns, battle grounds or even hereditary burial grounds. We knew that an international event called “Homecoming Scotland 2009” would create a need for Scottish clan tours from Inverness. As a result we created a whole suite of them. And the Clanlands book – well, we carry a copy of it with us on these tours now, just in case anyone wants to discuss it.

Custom Outlander Tours in Scotland

We are often asked for Custom Outlander Tours and love crafting longer journeys. You can add more Outlander, some islands or perhaps even your own Clanlands. A variety of additional Outlander sites can be visited out of Edinburgh (like Glencorse Kirk and Preston Mill). Others lie closer to Glasgow (like Pollock House, Dean Castle and Dunure).
