Welcome to Scotland.
Arrive at Edinburgh airport, where we will meet and take you to your centrally located hotel. Early evening, meet your fellow travellers for a get together where you will also learn more of the Clan Fraser, told by a real member of the clan. Then enjoy a free evening in Scotland’s capital city. Overnight in Edinburgh.
Explore the cobbled streets of the Royal Mile and Edinburgh’s Old Town. Discover its narrow Closes and Wynds from Holyroodhouse Palace, via Canongate up to Edinburgh Castle. Learn the hidden secrets of these ancient streets on this half day guided walking tour. Your afternoon will be free to explore further at your own pace. Overnight in Edinburgh.
Glencoe and Inverness.
The adventure continues when you leave Edinburgh with your guide. You will visit Doune Castle which is standing in for Castle Leoch in the TV programme, before you continue through the magnificent Glencoe and on to Fort William, the beginning of the ‘Great Glen’ and the Caledonian Canal. In Fort William you have the opportunity to sample ‘The Water of Life’ with a whisky distillery tour and tasting. Then you will be travelling the entire length of Loch Ness, looking out for ‘Nessie’. Overnight in Inverness for the next three nights.
Culloden and Craigh na Dun.
You will start the day visiting the beautiful area of Glen Affric, surrounded on all sides by stunning Caledonian pine forest. In the afternoon, you will be visiting Culloden which is playing such an important role in Scottish history and the Outlander books. Later, you will take a short drive to the ancient standing stones at Clava Cairns, which would have given Diana the inspiration for Craigh na Dun.
Discover Frazer and Mackenzie Clans.
A short drive this morning will take you to Beauly, and the site of Beauly Priory and the tomb of Lord Lovat and Fraser Clan lands. Continue onto Castle Leod, seat of the Clan Mackenzie, for a private tour conducted by the Laird himself. In the afternoon, you visit the Clan Centre at Storehouse to hear what life was like in the area in 1790 and learn more about the clans system in Scotland. There might be time to look out for the Water- horse at Loch Garve!
Outlander film locations.
Today, we are close on the trail of film locations for the Outlander TV Series. You will make a stop at the Newtonmore Highland Folk Museum as well as visiting Culross and Falkland in the Kingdom of Fife.
