We start the day in Edinburgh at 8.45am and head to Linlithgow Palace (Wentworth Prison). We then visit the famous Doune Castle (Castle Leoch), one of the best-preserved medieval castles in Scotland; it’s also a movie star. Most recently it starred as Castle Leoch, the home of Clan MacKenzie in the hit series Outlander, but it wasn’t the castle’s first time on big screen. It was used as a film set for Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Winterfell from Game of Thrones to name a few. After exploring the castle, we head to Fife, one of the remaining ancient kingdoms of Scotland. Often referred to as ‘Scotland in miniature’, because of its stunning nature, turbulent history and unique culture. We make a stop in Culross, the town that was used as Cranesmuir where Claire and Geillis were accused of witchcraft and Claire barely managed to escape before being burned alive. It was a close call! We’ll spend the afternoon in the village of Falkland that was used as 1940’s Inverness in Outlander. It packs a lot of listed buildings for a small village, but if you are not interested in old, pretty buildings you can always try to chase Jamie’s ghost around the square. Our final stop is at Midhope Castle*. Get ready for the tears of joy and a lot of excitement when we hang around Jamie’s peaceful home, the real-life Lallybroch before arriving back in Edinburgh. This tour is a must for all Outlander fans! *Please note Midhope Castle will be closed will be at various points throughout the year for filming activity.
In 2011 HAGGiS Adventures teamed up with 'Trees for Life', a Scottish charity specifically dedicated to restoring 1,000 square miles of self-sustaining, wild, Caledonian Forest with the aim of helping Scotland 'Stay Wild'. We have pioneered an Eco Scheme where you can make an optional £2 donation when booking any tour. We will match every pound you donate, with proceeds going to the Trees for Life.
