The Scottish Highlands

Outlander


Scotland’s history and scenic beauty were the inspiration for American author Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series of novels.

The resulting TV series now features many of the Scottish locations mentioned in the books.

Others double for their fictional versions. Follow in Claire and Jamie’s time-travelling footsteps on our Outlander tours.

Things to See...

Outlander - Culross (Cranesmuir)

Cranesmuir (Culross)

The historic Fife village of Culross doubles as the fictional Cranesmuir in Outlander. Culross is one of Scotland’s most picturesque villages, looking much today as it did in the 16th century.

Castle Leoch (Doune Castle)

Outlander Doune Castle
Doune Castle is a 14th-century courtyard castle which poses as Castle Leoch in Outlander. You may also recognise Doune from its role in Monty Python and the Holy Grail and the pilot for Game of Thrones.
