● About the Tour

This is an exciting journey to the beautiful West Coast to visit 3 romantic and historic Scottish Castles {ENTRY INCLUDED to all 3 castles} filmed in Outlander and to enjoy some of the most stunning Scottish coastal scenery and walks at Irish Sea and Galloway. Our main destination is the charming, picturesque Portpatrick town and Dunskey Castle. Portpatrick is situated on the far Western coast of the Rhinns of Galloway, you will be breath taken by the views and a line of pastel-coloured houses, stretched along the small bay with cliffs forming the backdrop. Outlander Tour also includes visiting the historic Dunure Castle, located on a rocky promontory, overlooking Dunure beach and harbour. Dunure harbour was transformed into the port where Jamie and Claire once again meet Jared, and board the Artemis for their journey to Jamaica. The same harbour also served as the port where Bree and Roger started their journeys to the colonies. We will also visit Dean Castle, scenically set in a wooded glen in Kilmarnock. It was once the stronghold of the Boyd family. The castle and surrounding lands were given to Sir Robert Boyd by Robert the Bruce in 1316 to thank him for his support at the Battle of Bannockburn. In Outlander Jamie and Claire visit Dean Castle to persuade Jamie’s grandfather, Lord Lovat ‘The Old Fox,’ to send his men to aid Charles Stuart.

This is truly a fun-filled Day Trip to appreciate dramatic coastal walks on the South West Coast historic castles and movie locaitons.
