Step back in time and have a fun packed day visiting some of the amazing film locations used in the popular Outlander TV series. Enjoy a visit to the historic village of Culross which doubled as the fictional village of Cranesmuir where Claire and Geillis are marched through the streets when suspected of witchcraft and the young boy had his ear nailed to a post. Explore the cobbled streets and see the historic 17th century Palace where Claire's Herb garden at Castle Leoch is located. See also the old The Town House, built in 1626, once the administrative centre of the village which also includes the former tollbooth and witches' prison. 
    Fast forward to Series 2 and we visit a fine whisky distillery which doubled as the wine warehouse of Jamie's cousin on the docks of Le Harve in France. We then visit the amazing Castle Leoch - home of Calum MacKenzie (otherwise known as Doune Castle which also featured prominently in the filming of the cult movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail). You'll have opportunity for a Pub lunch on route and then we'll try to capture your imagination on the final leg of the tour with a visit to the impressive ruins of Linlithgow Palace (aka Wentworth Prison where Jamie was imprisoned) and finally a visit to Hopetoun House, Scotland's Finest Stately Home which doubled as the home of the insincere Duke of Sandringham in the first series. Altogether a fun day packed full of extremely interesting attractions.
