Sample Itinerary:

DAY 1 | ARRIVE EDINBURGH

On arrival at Edinburgh airport you will be met by your chauffeur and transferred to your city center hotel. The balance of your day is at leisure.

Overnight: The Roxburghe

 

DAY 2 | EDINBURGH CITY SIGHTSEEING

This morning meet your local guide and enjoy a guided walking tour of the Royal Mile, including World's End and White Horse Close. Discover the narrow Closes and Wynds from Holyrood Palace to Edinburgh Castle. The afternoon is at leisure; perhaps visit Edinburgh Castle, perched high above the city. (B)

Overnight: The Roxburghe


DAY 3 | EDINBURGH / FORT WILLIAM / INVERNESS

Leaving behind Edinburgh this morning your first stop is at Doune Castle, the film location for Castle Leoch in the TV programme. Doune Castle is a magnificent late 14th century courtyard castle. It's most striking feature is the 100ft high gatehouse which includes the splendid Lord's Hall with its musicians gallery, double fireplace and carved oak screen. Continue through the magnificent Glencoe and on to Fort William and search for the place where Jamie was held captive by Captain Randall. Travel along the banks of Loch Ness and see if you can catch a glimpse of the famous monster Nessie! Visit the ruins of Urquhart Castle. Urquhart Castle was once one of Scotland's largest castles and its remains include a tower house that commands wonderful views of the famous loch and Great Glen. (B)

Overnight: Kingsmill Hotel

 

DAY 4 | GLEN AFFRIC / CASTLE LEOD / BEULY

Start the day with a visit to the stunning area of Glen Affric, just past the village of Cannich. A walk through this glen will take you into the remains of the Great Caledonian Pine Forest where Jamie and Claire wandered after their wedding. Then on to Castle Leod which is the home of the Chief of the Clan MacKenzie and seat of the Clan MacKenzie. Castle Leod is one of the most beautiful, romantic and unspoilt castles in the Highlands and it has been lived in by the same family for over 500 years. The last stop today is at Beauly Priory, burying place of the Lovats. It was founded around 1230 by monks of the Valliscaulian order and their successors lived here for the next 300 years until the Protestant Reformation of 1560 brought their cloistered and contemplative life to an abrupt end. Today their legacy lives on, in their pretty, tree fringed abbey church, roofless but otherwise largely intact. Return to Inverness where your evening is at leisure. (B)

Overnight: Kingsmill Hotel


DAY 5 | CULLODEN & CLAVA CAIRNS

Visit the battlefields of Culloden, where in 1746 the Jacobite cause, with Bonnie Prince Charlie's leadership, was crushed. Over 1,200 perished in just an hour in the brutal fight, and the award-winning visitor center presents the events leading up to the battle, as well as the battle itself and the aftermath.  This is also where Claire and Jamie said their goodbyes before the disastrous Battle of Culloden.  Go in search of the mysterious Craigh na Dun, a split stone of the stone circle that sent Claire back to Jacobite times. Although fictional this could have been inspired by the Clava Cairns, which dates back to the Bronze Age. (B)

Overnight: Kingsmill Hotel

 

DAY 6 | INVERNESS / FIFE / EDINBURGH

Bid farewell to Inverness and the Highlands and travel through Cairngorms National Park to the Kingdom of Fife. Visit the village of Falkland that used for Inverness in the Starz TV series "Outlander". Stop at the Covenanter Hotel, which was "Mrs Bairds B&B" in the series. Walk around the town and see the Falkland Parish Church, which was renamed Dalneigh Parish Church and wander around the area surrounding the Bruce Fountain. Next visit the Royal Burgh of Culross.  Culross is the location for the fictional village of Cranesmuir.  It is a fascinating example of a town that time has forgot. The National Trust for Scotland has worked tirelessly to preserve the 16th Century town center including the Town House that was built in 1626. In Culross you will find Claire's herb garden and many of the buildings that feature in the show. Continue to Edinburgh at your leisure (B)

Overnight: The Roxburghe Hotel
