Day 2 - Glasgow: Let's follow in the footsteps of Jamie and Claire!

We will meet after breakfast and begin our first day of visiting the filming sites of the Outlander TV series. These historical sites are not only a part of the series, doubling as the fictional land of Claire and Jamie, but an integral part of the heritage of Scotland.

We will begin at Glasgow Cathedral from Season 2, which is the hospital setting where Claire does her volunteer work. Then we're off to Stirling Castle, then Doune Castle, home of Colum MacKenzie (Season 1) and a former royal residence. After a stop for a quick lunch and a wee dram, we will head to Tibbermore Church, the scene of the infamous with trial with Geillis. (Season 1). Then we meander onto Falkland (Seasons 1 and 2) and ending our day with the famous Kelpies!

Day 3 - Coming into Sight of Inverness

This morning, we will meet after breakfast and make our way by train to Inverness for our next two nights. After a lovely sunset walk and exploring, we will enjoy an evening with Scottish musicians at a favorite local pub.


Day 4 - Inverness: Sing me a song of a lass that is gone

After an early morning breakfast, we will travel to the iconic Isle of Skye, famous for its dramatic mountain scenery, picturesque seascapes and prehistoric past.

We will travel along the shores of Loch Ness, past the Five Sisters mountain range until we reach the Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland’s most magical sights. After touring the castle, we’ll cross “over the sea to Skye” by way of the road bridge.

As we travel through the island, you will be in awe of the jugged ridges dropping to the gentle beaches. We will pass by the many inlets, bays and islands which create a complex pattern with the sea and views that go on forever. After some free time in Isle of Skye’s capital, Portree, we will continue to tour the island, stopping to enjoy dramatic views and the atmospheric little villages before we return to Inverness.

(This day may be substituted with the Jacobite Steam Train roundtrip excursion. Subject to weather conditions.)
