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, the smell of gunpowder in the air and 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.
