With its rugged landscape and stunning scenery Scotland was the natural location and plays a starring role in the TV adaptation of the novels. The Outlander series tells the story of 20th century married combat nurse Claire Randall who,in 1945 Scotland, mysteriously travels back in time to 18th century Scotland and finds adventure and romance with Jamie Fraser, a young Jacobean warrior.
So there you have it. A epic fantasy drama with a mixture of historical fiction, romance, drama and science fiction. Something for everyone. Although many of the locations in the books are in the Highlands of Scotland the TV producers found more than suitable alternative places to shoot in the Central Belt, which is within easy reach of both Edinburgh and Glasgow. We can offer you day trip Outlander tours from the Central Belt to the filming locations or three day tours to the book locations further north.
