      Step back in time and visit some of the amazing film locations used in the popular Outlander TV series. Enjoy a visit to the historic village of Falkland, one of the main scenes in first Episode. We search for Claire at nearby standing stones where you can try and feel the energy that transported Claire back into the 18th Century. We visit the harbour in the village of Dysart which doubled as the Port of Le Harve where Claire and Jamie first set foot in France.  We then visit the fictional village of Cranesmuir where the young boy had his ear nailed to a post as a punishment and Claire and Geillis are marched through the streets when suspected of witchcraft. Explore the cobbled streets and visit 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. Optional lunch stop on route or take a tour of the distillery. 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). On the final leg of the tour we head to one of Europe's finest formal gardens at Drummond Castle which doubled for the Palace of Versailles in France. Altogether a fun day packed full of extremely interesting attractions.
