Your Experience

This tour takes you back to the year 1745 when the Jacobite rebellion was in full swing in Edinburgh. This treacherous landscape provides the backdrop to Outlander, an internationally-loved TV series that uses the events of history to drive the stories of its characters. Trace historic events that inspired Diana Gabaldon’s acclaimed novels on this walking tour. An English-speaking guide will help capture the spirit of the Jacobite rebellion in Edinburgh replete with the Redcoats, the Highlanders and the smell of gunpowder in the air. Slip into the alleyways of the Old Town and recall the adventures of famous characters Claire and Jamie as you visit set locations like Canongate Kirkyard, where the leader of the MacKenzie clan last saw the couple, Tolbooth Jail, where the Fraser men of Lallybroch were held captive, and the World’s End Tavern. You will also visit sites that are reminiscent of the scenarios in the second and third books of the Outlander series - Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager.
