Inverness: Outlander Day Tour

1. Inverness: Outlander Day Tour

First, stop at the world-famous Loch Ness, after which you carry on to Wardlaw Mausoleum, which was built in 1634 as the burial place for the Frasers of Lovat before later being used by the clan until the early 19th century. You’ll even venture into the crypt where you’ll learn of the mystery surrounding the double lead-lined coffin which was said to contain the headless body of the 11th Lord Lovat (Jamie’s grandfather in Outlander). Next, visit the attractive ruins of Beauly Priory, dating back to 1230, the burial site for the Frasers of Lovat and MacKenzies as far back as 1479. It was there at Beauly Priory that Claire came across the Lovat Seer, Maisri, when she and Jamie were visiting his grandfather prior to the Jacobite Rising of 1745. Carry onto Culloden Battlefield, where Jamie survived the brutal and bloody end to the Jacobite Rising of 1745. Your guide will walk you around the battlefield and past the Fraser Stone, which commemorates the Fraser clansmen who fought there that day. Your next stop is Clava Cairns, three well-preserved Bronze Age burial chambers each surrounded by a circle of standing stones. The site boasts its own "split stone", similar to the one in the first Outlander book when Claire was transported back in time to 1743.

What people are saying about Inverness

Excelente tour. Debo destacar el trabajo de Ian, el guía, ha sido extraordinario su trabajo y dedicación para explicar cada parada que hemos realizado. Realmente se nota la pasión que tiene por su país y lo transmite. Lamentamos no haber tenido dinero efectivo para darle una propina, ya que era merecida. Ian ,well done.

Ian Anderson was our tour guide and he was AMAZING! He was very knowledgeable about places we visited and made sure we hit all the famous spots. He also had great dinner suggestions. He and my spouse had a great time discussing history. I would recommend asking for him as a tour guide

Ian is a fantastic guide, full of knowledge and passionate about Scottish history and culture. He included extras like a visit to a farm, Cawdor castle, plus a boat lift/lock in action on a canal. Highly recommended!

Our guide Ian was amazing. He took our interests into account and fitted some brilliant extras into our day. When asked what the highlight was-it was Ian. Thank you

Was a beautiful day, saw a lot and felt very alone.
