You will travel back in time as your driver takes you over the Queensferry Crossing to Culross after you leave Edinburgh at 9:15 in the morning.

Taking on the appearance of the fictional town of Cranesmuir, this 16th-century village with a view of the sea has not changed much. While imagining what life must have been like 400 years ago, you have time to visit Claire's herb garden, the palace, or the ancient streets.

To Doune Castle*, also known as Castle Leoch in Outlander, you will travel past Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument. You can see how a Scottish earl lived in the 14th century through this impressive structure.

You can also listen to a great audio guide about how Monty Python and the Holy Grail was filmed at this castle.

Linlithgow Palace is your next destination. You can spend some time here taking in the stunning views of the Forth bridges, having a picnic by the loch, and exploring the birthplace ruins of Mary Queen of Scots. You can go to the location of the gruesome Outlander scene if you're feeling brave.

Blackness Castle can be reached in a short distance from here. Due to its resemblance to a massive stone boat, this impressive castle is also known as the "ship that never sailed." You have time to explore the fictional Jack Randall headquarters and walk the ramparts.

Your next destination should be Midhope Castle. Jamie's lovely Lallybroch home is still an essential photo opportunity for any show fan, despite the fact that visitors cannot enter the castle.

You will make one last stop in the vibrant South Queensferry harbor area before returning to Edinburgh, and you will be back there by about 5:45 p.m.

The tour was outstanding. My girlfriend and I are huge fans of “Outlander” series and Stefan, our guide was the best thing that we could ask for. He was extremely funny, informative, positive and most of all he made the tour a magical experience. I would definitely ,highly recommend Rabbies. They are a good company and have well chosen their staff. My girlfriend and I are definitely going to buy a tour from Rabbies again! 11/10

Our guide was energetic, informative about history and funny. He made sure we knew enough to get the most out of each stop, the scenery along the way, and to eat well while still keeping things on schedule. It was a highlight for our group of 5 to be able to just take it all in, at a reasonable pace, and to see first-hand why Outlander wisely made use of so many incredible venues and scenery in Scotland. I'd do a Rabbie's tour again anytime, and use Getmyguide on my jaunts around the world. F...

I might be willing to give a 5-star review if our tour guide Barbara hadn’t started out the tour by loudly complaining about how much she hated Outlander, the main characters, or the lead actor himself. Completely unnecessary, rude, and downright insulting considering the fact all of us had paid a large sum for a magical Outlander specific tour. Incredibly unprofessional and downright insulting to the fans of the show and book. Would consider another Rabbie tour because of the small size, but...

Our tour guide Robbie was very informative, he even told us about how Scotland formed geographically millions of years ago, and how that affected its climate and landscape. I was amazed to hear the highlands of Scotland formed from a piece of land once connected to North America, and that's why you can find granite rock there, while the lowlands of Scotland formed from a different geological "event" and therefore has a different landscape. You can read more about it at Wikipedia--fascinating ...

Exciting and beautiful bus tour…. Also great for non Outlander fan..... Lallybroch was ok..... Not much to see. Blackness Castle is absolutely great... Culross is super small but nice - beautiful for a walk... Doune Castle with an audio guide is interesting. linlitgowth-Castler unfortunately closed, but still nice to look at from the outside. Tour highly recommended. Our tour guide Jan was very friendly and told interesting stories... Everything was perfect

Absolutely lovely day! Andy was a great guy, very kind, a good sense of humour & pleasant company! Thank you so much Andy! What a beautiful day around key places of the Outlander show. The pace was perfect with lots of time to see. Never felt rushed, a good balance between being guided & having free time! Highly recommended even if you are not an Outlander nerd, those places are stunning & worth being seen!

We had a wonderful day touring a lot of the sites where the series Outlander was filmed. The van we were on was very comfortable we felt very safe throughout the day. Our driver Dougie he was very informative and a great source of information about Scotland in general. We would highly recommend to other fans of the series Outlander of those that just want to see part of the Scottish countryside.

I fully recommend this Outlander tour to any avid fan!! It was amazing! But I should point out that 2 of the places on our tour you had to pay to get in they are not included in the price you pay. Those were Midhope castle and Blackness castle. Otherwise it’s definitely worth the money! And our tour guide/bus driver Eric really made it more interesting…and entertaining! I honestly can’t recommend this tour enough, I’m a HUGE Outlander fan so this was like going to Disney land for me!

A great day despite one castle not bejng accessible on the day. Eric was an amazing guide; personable, funny and very knowledgeable about Scottish history. Would recommend the trip to all Outlander fans and also those interested in castles in general. As a note the tea-room in Culross needs a mention. At the end of a cold day this unpretentious little place offered the best cheese scones and coffee we've tasted in the UK by far. Thanks for a grand day!
