Outlander Tour – the full details

Outlander Tour inspired by the wonderful books by Author, Diana Gabaldon and the smash-hit TV series Outlander, we will take you on the trip of a lifetime. This tour comprises of 5 nights (accommodation is included in the price with a full Scottish breakfast) and 5 full days visiting and photographing some of the most iconic locations used in the Outlander television series. You will spend 4 nights at The Golden Lion Hotel in Stirling, “The heart of Scotland” and then the final night at a hotel in Inverness.

The tours are led and conducted by professional photographer (and Scottish history fanatic) James Christie, a 40-year veteran of his industry. We will pick you up from Edinburgh International Airport, Waverley Train Station or any central Edinburgh location and return you to the same or convenient location on the final day of the tour.

James spent several years researching and putting this tour together, to offer you a truly once in a lifetime Outlander experience. James can provide photographic equipment for you to use while on the tour (at no extra cost) if necessary.

Entry to all locations is included in the price. Appropriate lunch breaks and bio-breaks are included each day; however, lunch and dinner are not included in the price.
