ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE DAY

The Outlander Tour of Edinburgh

Explore the famous Jacobite city that inspired the hit Outlander series. Follow the story of Claire & Jamie, while learning the real history behind Diana Gabaldon's fictitious novels.

This hit walking tour allows you to travel back in time and explore Jacobite Edinburgh, focusing on Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling book series Outlander and the streets that inspired her to write them. This tour will trace the Jacobite rebellion within the city, while also following Claire and Jamie’s journey. You can expect a knowledgeable historic tour with thrilling dramatic readings from the novels and visits to filming locations of the popular TV series.

You’ll begin your walking tour at The Mercat Cross located in Parliament Square. You’ll then head deep into Edinburgh’s old town. This tour will expertly combine history with the popular franchise, going behind the scenes of fact and fiction within the series, meaning you’ll learn how Claire and Jamie’s story relates to actual events of the period. Your expert guide will transport you into the Jacobite rebellion as you explore the locations across Edinburgh where history was first created and the ideas for the series were first formed. You’ll explore Tolbooth Jail, Canongate Kirkyard, the World’s End Tavern and other 18th century taverns still open today. You’ll hear stories of witchcraft, Royal Stuarts, curses and clans before visiting filming locations from the hit Outlander TV show.

Whether you’re interested in history or the love story of your favourite characters, this is an exciting experience gift for any Outlander fan.
