Overview
The crumbling castles and rolling highlands of Scotland provided a dramatic backdrop to scenes from hit TV show Outlander, but unless you know exactly where you’re going, they can be difficult to find. Travel between dispersed filming sites with ease on an Outlander location tour from Edinburgh, which lets you skip the stress of car hire and navigation.
