ABOUT SCOTTISH OUTLANDER TOURS
Choose Nordic Visitor and our Edinburgh-based travel experts will use their local knowledge to create an unforgettable Outlander-themed adventure for you.
Simply pick the way of travelling that suits you from a range of Scottish self-drive tours and privately guided packages in Scotland. Read on to find out which will suit you best.
GO ON A SELF-DRIVE TOUR OF OUTLANDER SITES IN SCOTLAND
Opting for a self-drive tour will give you the freedom to see the attractions you want while going at your own pace. And although you may be travelling independently, it won’t feel that way because on a Nordic Visitor road trip you can expect:
A dedicated travel consultant who’ll arrange your trip
A hand-noted, personalised itinerary and route map
24/7 phone support during your adventure for peace of mind
Handpicked accommodation at your chosen price point
Plus, these tours are designed to be flexible so you can customise your trip with extra nights or additional attractions. For instance, you could add extra nights in Inverness and take a day tour to Loch Ness.
VENTURE BEHIND THE SCENES OF OUTLANDER WITH A LOCAL GUIDE
Alternatively, you can explore Scotland with a knowledgeable local on a privately guided tour package, that’s completely hassle-free. This is also the perfect way to travel if want to gain extra insight into the historical events portrayed in the series.
For instance, learn about the Jacobite Rising, which came to an end on Culloden Battlefield in the mid-18th century. You’ll also find out about the fascinating history of Bonnie Prince Charlie. And discover what life was like for Scottish clans like the Mackenzies, MacDonalds and of course, the Frasers.
You can tailor your privately guided tour package by adding extra nights in Edinburgh at the beginning or end of the guided portion of your trip.
Extending your stay here will give you more time for exploring Scotland’s cosmopolitan capital city. Beyond Edinburgh’s top attractions, you’ll find winding cobbled alleyways, lush parks, and endless fine dining options.
That said, if you have something specific in mind don’t hesitate to contact our local travel experts to discuss a bespoke Scotland itinerary.
MEET OTHER OUTLANDER FANS ON A GROUP TOUR
You could also opt for a Scotland guided small group trip. Although not solely focused on Outlander sites, you’ll still see locations from the show on many of these tours.
A guided group package is ideal if you want to visit a few of the show’s top filming locations with an expert driver-guide to answer your questions. Plus, sightseeing in a group of up to just 15 guests means you’ll enjoy a more personal experience than you’d get in a larger group.
SEE THE OUTLANDER FILM LOCATIONS IN PERSON
No matter how you choose to travel on one of these Scotland Outlander tour packages you’ll want to take in the best of the show’s sights.
You’ll find that Nordic Visitor’s Outlander themed tours of Scotland showcase many of the prime filming locations featured in the series. These include Edinburgh’s iconic Royal Mile and Fife’s quaint fishing villages. As well as imposing Doune Castle, which you might recognise as “Castle Leoch”.
The vastness of Rannoch Moor and the mysterious Clava Cairns are also favourites with fans of the show. The cairns are reminiscent of the fictional “Craigh na Dun” standing stones – Claire’s magical portal.
You’ll find more must-see filming locations in Edinburgh and the nearby Kingdom of Fife:
