Day One - Edinburgh's Treasures

Edinburgh Half-Day Tour
Outlander sites which include: Signet Library + Tweeddale Court + Bakehouse Close


Transport:
Executive Mercedes E-Class or Similar
Accommodation – Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh (Executive View Room)

At last, you have finally made it to what will be your most memorable holiday to date! When you arrive at the airport, you will be greeted by your chauffeur and escorted to The Balmoral Hotel, where can drop your luggage off and allow the excitement of your holiday to sink in. When you are ready, you will make your way to the entrance of the hotel where you will meet your Edinburgh tour guide of the day, who will be eager to share the city’s world-famous wonders.

Seeing that you have interested in Outlander, your guide will ensure that you get to visit some of the filming locations.  The exquisite Signet Library that was filmed in Season 3 is located near the city centre in Edinburgh’s Old Town and is the home of the Society of Writers to Her Majesty’s Signet. First formed in 1594, this is a private society of Scottish solicitors that supports lawyers and legal business through an array of activities.

You will also relive the moment where Claire was reunited with Fergus in season 3, by visiting Tweeddale Court. Located on the historic Royal Mile, this is an opportunity for you to experience the real joy of Edinburgh’s Old Town by taking a step back into the centuries and losing yourself in the labyrinth of closes and wynds.

Next on the list is a visit to the famous Bakehouse Close that is the home of Alexander Malcolm’s print shop. In Outlander, it is where Claire eventually reunited with Jamie after spending many years apart.

You will also visit St Giles Cathedral and Edinburgh Castle.

For dinner, our recommendations would be to pop in to Wedgwood Restaurant in city’s Cannongate area.
After a long day of exploring Edinburgh’s treasures, you will return to the Balmoral Hotel.

 

Day Two - Rich Scottish History & Castle Leoch Await

Blackness Castle, Doune Castle, Stirling Castle, Bannockburn

Transport: Executive Mercedes E-Class or Similar
Accommodation: Cromlix Hotel, Perthshire

Your driver will pick you up soon after breakfast to begin your exciting historical journey. You will be escorted through the Lothians until you reach one of Scotland’s most legendary fortresses, Blackness Castle. This impressive stronghold dates back to the 15th century and was once regarded as one of the strongest artillery fortifications of its time in Scotland. In recent years it has frequently found its way into the film industry, being used as Black Jack Randall’s headquarters in Outlander.

The journey continues north across the central belt until you reach Doune Castle. Built in the 14th century, the castle has a set of unique characteristics such as its 100f- high gatehouse as well as one of Scotland’s best preserved great halls.  The Outlander series took advantage of this by featuring it as Castle Leoch (fictional seat of Clan MacKenzie). Not camera-shy, Doune Castle has also been used in Game of Thrones and Monty Python.

Up next is a visit to the historic town of Stirling. Being at the heart of Scotland, Stirling certainly punches well above its weight with regards to historical substance. Scotland’s bloodiest battles have been fought here, including the Battle of Stirling Bridge and The Battle of Bannockburn where historic legends William Wallace and Robert the Bruce fought for the freedom of Scotland against the invading English army.

At the top of one of Scotland’s most important sites, Stirling Castle provides a panoramic view of the wondrous hilly landscape that surrounds the city.  Here you will be taken back to the 16th century, with the help of costume characters that will act as court officials, bodyguards, maids of honour and servants.

Shortly afterwards, you will then be taken to one of Scotland’s most defining historical moments, ‘The Battle of Bannockburn.’ With impressive 3D technology, the visitor centre vividly tells the full story behind this gruelling battle against King Edward I of England’s army. Witness the medieval combat like never before and discover more about one of the most famous events in the Wars of Independence.

You will be taken to the beautiful Cromix Hotel where you can wind down in comfort and take advantage of their great facilities.

Day Three - 'Gardens of Versailles' to The Isle of Skye

Drummond Castle, Glencoe, Ferry from Mallaig to Armadale, Talisker Distillery tour

Accommodation: Kinloch Lodge (Sea View Double)
Transport: Executive Mercedes E-Class or Similar

Once you have awakened, arisen and assuaged your hunger with a relaxing breakfast, your private driver will be ready to continue your journey up north.  Your first stop of the day will be Drummond Castle and Gardens, which made its appearance in the second series of Outlander as the ‘Gardens of Versailles’.

The journey will continue northwards through Scotland’s wondrous landscape until you arrive at Glencoe. This area was once a super volcano and erosion has left us with a dramatic landscape which, together with its bloody history – it was the scene of the infamous massacre of 1692 – attracts visitors from all around the world.  Take a deep breath, soak in the scenery and have your camera at the ready for some inspiring photos.

Glenfinnan Viaduct is your next stop.  Most famous for its inclusion in the second and third Harry Potter films, Glenfinnan Viaduct is the epic setting which the Hogwarts Express passed through to the school. Get your cameras out, take pictures and relive some of Harry’s magical moments.

The next stop is Mallaig, where you will get on the ferry to Armadale in the Isle of Skye. From Armadale, you will travel to the renowned Talisker Distillery for an exciting tour of their facilities, where you will learn about Talisker’s rich history and be treated to a few drams at the end. You will then be chauffeured to the quaint town of Portree. Originally created as a for the fishing industry at the beginning of the 19th century, this endearing village enjoys being surrounded by a picturesque landscape where people appreciate its tranquillity.

The day will end at Kinloch Lodge, a truly charming, family-run hotel with stunning views.
Relax in comfort with world-class food at renowned Chef Marcello Tully’s in house restaurant.

Day Four - Magical Skye

Day Tour Of Skye: Fairy Pools, Dunvegan Castle, Totternish, Old Man of Storr

Accommodation – Kinloch Lodge (Sea View Double)
Transport: Executive Mercedes E-Class or Similar

After you have appeased your appetite with a relaxing breakfast, your driver will be ready to take you on a day tour of the Isle of Skye. The first stop of the day will be at the Fairy Pools. Filled with glistening water from the Cuillin Hills, these sculpted rock pools attract thousands of visitors every year due its round-topped grassy hills with ponds cutely tucked in-between them, giving the landscape an otherworldly feel.

The next stop will be Dunvegan Castle. Dunvegan Castle is perfectly placed on a rock that is set against an unrivalled backdrop of sky, mountains and sea. The castle has been home to the Chiefs of Clan MacLeod for 800 years which you will find more about during the grand tour of the castle.   Once you have completed your tour of Dunvegan Castle, you will venture northwards to the Totternish Peninsula to visit the Old Man of Storr. Its surrounding scenery is its most defining feature and this attracts hikers and photographers.

. Once you have taken in all of the scenery, you will be taken back to Kinloch Lodge Hotel to put up your feet, enjoy some fine dining and reminisce about the day’s adventure.

Day Five - A Journey Through the Highlands

Eilean Donan Castle, Glen Ord Distillery, Private Loch Ness Boat Tour

Transport: Executive Mercedes E-Class or Similar
Accommodation: Ness Walk, Inverness

In the morning, you will leave the Isle of Skye by travelling over the Skye Bridge towards your first stop of the day, Eilean Donan Castle. This iconic Highland castle is one of the most recognised in the world. Situated on a tidal island on the edge of Loch Duich, the castle was first built in the 13th century, destroyed by the Royal Navy during the Jacobite Rising of 1745 and restored in the early 20th century.

Your journey will continue eastwards to Loch Ness, the deepest inland lake in the British Isles. Here you will go on a Private Cruise on its crystal-clear waters and who knows, you might even see the elusive loch ness monster!

Soon afterwards, your driver will escort you north to Glen Ord Distillery, the last remaining single malt scotch whisky distillery on the Black Isle. You will experience a fully-guided tour that uncovers all of the processes required to create the golden Glen Ord single malt.

After enjoying these exquisite single malts, it will be time to get some dinner and relax after an exhilarating day of touring. You will be escorted to Ness Walk Hotel. Nestled on the leafy banks of the River Ness this 5-star hotel is surrounded by a dramatic canopy of impressive trees, spoiling guests with stunning views over the River Ness.

 

Day Six - Culloden, 'Craigh na Dun' & Cawdor

Transport: Executive Mercedes E-Class or similar.
Accommodation: Ness Walk, Inverness

The sixth day will see you embark on an astonishing tour of the region, taking in the most significant of Outlander sites.

You will begin with a visit to the historic Bronze Age circular chamber tomb, Clava Cairns. Fast becoming a bucket list site to visit for many, as the site that inspired Outlander’s fictitious stone circle, Craigh na Dun. Regarded as one of Scotland’s most well-preserved historic sites, the ruins will give you an ancient historic experience in beautifully tranquil surroundings.

You will then continue to the last site of the Jacobite Rising, Culloden Battlefield, where a bloody and harrowing battle was fought against the redcoats. A visit to Culloden is a poignant experience due to the bloody nature of the Jacobite’s massacre. The deaths of these clansmen are represented through scattered headstones along with a six-metre-high memorial cairn.

Your last activity of the day will be Cawdor Castle. Built in the 15th century, Cawdor Castle was originally the property of Clan Cawdor before changing its ownership to the Campbells in the 16th century. This historic building is also famous for its literary connection with Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Here you can explore its historic foundations, grand interior design, its famous Drawing Room and Old Kitchen, whose 19th century design has remained intact.

After Cawdor Castle, it will be time to get some dinner and relax from a long hard day of touring. You will be escorted to Ness Walk Hotel. This 5-star hotel spoils guests with its lavish rooms, sumptuous furnishings and picturesque surroundings.
