Jamie and Claire Tours, General Description

We think the Jamie and Claire Outlander Tour of Scotland is as close as you can get in a week on a Diana Gabaldon tour inspired adventure of our heroes. Some of our highlights may include an exclusive visit to a Private "Lallybroch" Estate or search for Nessie on a Loch Ness Boat Trip or try your skills at Pony/Horse Trekking. We'll experience the paths and hills of the Scottish Highlands. We will witness parts of the battle and pay our respects to the fallen at Culloden Battlefield. We'll look for the elusive Stone of craigh na dun that brought Claire into Jamie Fraser's life. We'll admire the surrounding countryside of Lallybroch on foot, and stay in some traditional accommodations of the Highlands. We'll visit the romantic wee chapel like the one Claire and James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser were joined in a traditional Scottish Handfasting marriage. There will be time for traditonal celtic music, Gàidhlig words and phrases and Storytelling of the 18th century with a Highland Storyteller as one of your guides. We are devoted Jamie and Claire fans and have created experiences that best reflect the atmosphere of their adventures and life in the 1700s.
We've chosen the locations and experiences closest to the first 3 books in the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. However, these are places that will appeal to everyone interested in the magnificance of Scotland. Walking is essential to this tour, as we leave the vehicle at each destination and put on our walking shoes and enjoy the beauty around us.

Who are the tours for?

(Prior tours and gallery ~ click here to see for yourself!)

This adventure is for Outlandish Spirits; both guys and gals, readers and their non-reader partners. People who want to explore the real Highlands of Scotland. Someone brave enough to leave the city and shopping behind and go walking through a woodland or straight up a wee hill, clamber around in the heather, enjoy gorgeous mountains and lochs, explore ancient ruins and castles, meet real Highland folk, try new foods, partake in a bit of Usige Beatha, breathe, be quirky, and be open to new experiences. Anyone can be an Outlandish Spirit - many people are and just don't know it until they get away from their 'normal' environments and have an adventure in the Highlands.
Note: All tours are non-smoking from the moment you join us until the completion of the tour.
