What You'll Do
  • Explore the Jacobite Edinburgh of the Outlander novels, with your expert guide
  • See Canongate Kirk, the Tolbooth Jail, World’s End Tavern and the 18th century taverns still open today
  • Hear stories of witchcraft, the Jacobites, Royal Stuarts, curses, clans and how Claire and Jamie’s story relates to the real history of Edinburgh
Bring Diana Gabaldon's Outlander books to life in 18th-century Edinburgh where Claire and Jamie are in the midst of the Jacobite uprising. Visit their Old Town haunts, from St Giles Cathedral to the palace and the closes that lie between.
What to Expect
Edinburgh, 1745. The Jacobite rising has reached the city gates, and Bonnie Prince Charlie is met by a cheering crowd, 20,000 strong. Amid the chaos of rebellion we find Claire and Jamie, two characters entwined in a story that spans centuries. 

Tracing the real events that inspired Diana Gabaldon’s acclaimed novels, this tour captures the spirit of the Jacobite rebellion in Edinburgh – the Redcoats, the Highlanders and the smell of gunpowder in the air. 

Behind the scenes of fact and fiction

Your expert guide will take you deep into the Old Town, to the places where history was made: Tolbooth Jail, Canongate Kirkyard and the World’s End Tavern. If Edinburgh is the set for second Outlander novel, you’re going behind the scenes.
