Outlander Film Locations Tour from Edinburgh Cruise Ship Port – Itinerary
The Outlander Film Locations Tour begins with a visit to Jamie’s home, Lallybroch. The film location for Fort William is next, and then Castle Leoch, home to the Mackenzies. Our final stop is the village of Cranesmuir, before returning to the ship.
Lallybroch (Midhope Castle)
Starz filmed Lallybroch at the 16th Century tower-house of Midhope Castle. They only filmed the exteriors here, and there is no access to the interior of the building. It’s a great place to have a wander, though, and take photographs on the steps of the house.
Fort William (Blackness Castle)
Fort William, and Jamie’s flogging, was filmed at the grim old castle-keep of Blackness Castle. George Crichton, a man later sentenced as a traitor, built this castle in the 1400’s. The government seized the castle when Crichton was sentenced.. They used it firstly as a state-prison, and later as a garrisoned ammunition-store so we can think of no better place to double as Fort William. The views from the walls and towers are amazing!
Wentworth Prison (Linlithgow Palace)
The Wentworth prison photostop is in the forecourt of Linlithgow Palace; the summer palace of the Stuart dynasty. We will not stop here for long because only a little of Wentworth was filmed at the palace. The production team chose to create the prison from scenes shot in several castles both in Scotland and in England. You will, however, enjoy the views from this impressive ruin on its hill above Linlithgow Loch.
Castle Leoch (Doune Castle)
Doune Castle is a perfect choice as Castle Leoch. It has provided the perfect setting for two important time periods. Filming of Frank and Claire’s twentieth century visit took place there, and it also starred as the home of Colum and Dougal Mackenzie in the 1700’s. Eager visitors also get the chance to listen to Sam Heughan (Jamie) on the audio guide.
Cranesmuir is our next stop. This is the village of Culross, in Fife. Probably one of Scotland’s most perfectly preserved towns dating from the 1500’s and 1600’s. You’ll see Geilis Duncan’s House, the Mercat Square and Claire’s Herb Garden from Castle Leoch (actually filmed here) along with many other film locations.
