Day two will take you to some of the fans favourite locations like Culross (Cranesmuir), Doune Castle ( Castle Leoch ), the magnificent Drummond Castle Gardens ( The gardens of Versailles) and then the ever impressive site where Craigh Na Dun was filmed near Loch Rannoch.
Day three we visit the historical Highland Folk Museum which was used for the scene in the episode ‘Rent’, in season 1 . Soon after we visit the enchanted Clava Cairns which was the inspiration for Craigh Na Dun in Outlander. These stones are believed to be over 4000 years old and was once used as an ancient burial ground. Walk through the forest and touch the stones. We then travel to the Culloden battlefield. This is a powerfully moving site of the final Jacobite Rising, the last and most harrowing pitched battle to be fought on British soil. Headstones mark the graves of hundreds of clansmen who gave their lives for the Jacobite cause, which there is no escaping the eerie emotions Culloden evokes. Explore the interactive visitor centre and battlefield, view fascinating artefacts from both sides of the confrontation, and experience the battle in the immersive surround sound cinema. The formidable Fort George is our final location for the day. The fort was erected in the wake of the Battle of Culloden (1746) as a secure base for King George II’s army. Fort George took 22 years to complete, by which time the Jacobite threat had subsided but it has served the British Army for almost 250 years since. Walk around the main ramparts and discover the barrack rooms where soldiers used to live. You can also explore the history of the highlander war museum, which is the largest regimental museum outside Edinburgh.
Day four will be start at the amazing Urquhart Castle which sits by the shores of Loch Ness. Discover more than 1000 years of history as the castle has been home to some of the most historical chapters of Scotland’s story. Urquhart castle was a government stronghold during the Jacobite risings and finally destroyed when Clan Grant decided to leave the castle for good, stopping the enemy from taking it for themselves. We then travel south through the Great Glen towards the Glenfinnan monument. The monument was built in 1815 to commemorate the clansmen who fought and died in the cause of Prince Charles Edward Stuart. The Princes standard was raised here on the 19th of August 1745 at the head of Loch Shiel, and was the last attempt to reinstate the exiled Stuarts on the throne of Great Britain and Ireland. We continue our drive south towards the magnificent Glencoe. Feel history come alive when we tell the tales of the massacre of the Macdonald clan, which took place in 1692 when British troops led by Captain Robert Campbell led their sinister assault and killed 38 men, woman and children. The Scottish highlands would never be the same again.
