We visited Midhope castle, Blackness castle, Linlithgow Palace, Doune castle, and the beautiful towns of Falkland and Culross. Despite the shorter hours of daylight in the winter time we managed to fit all these places in pretty quickly and met some wonderful people along the way. There was ample opportunity to stop and take photos, check out the souvenir stores and ask any questions we had about both Outlander and Scotland in general. The ease of being picked up/dropped off really helped, particularly as our hotel wasn't very close to the central train station. Overall, would highly recommend this tour to any Outlander fan."..."
