Full description
First, stop at the world-famous Loch Ness, after which you carry on to Wardlaw Mausoleum, which was built in 1634 as the burial place for the Frasers of Lovat before later being used by the clan until the early 19th century. You’ll even venture into the crypt where you’ll learn of the mystery surrounding the double lead-lined coffin which was said to contain the headless body of the 11th Lord Lovat (Jamie’s grandfather in Outlander). Next, visit the attractive ruins of Beauly Priory, dating back to 1230, the burial site for the Frasers of Lovat and MacKenzies as far back as 1479. It was there at Beauly Priory that Claire came across the Lovat Seer, Maisri, when she and Jamie were visiting his grandfather prior to the Jacobite Rising of 1745. Carry onto Culloden Battlefield, where Jamie survived the brutal and bloody end to the Jacobite Rising of 1745. Your guide will walk you around the battlefield and past the Fraser Stone, which commemorates the Fraser clansmen who fought there that day. Your next stop is Clava Cairns, three well-preserved Bronze Age burial chambers each surrounded by a circle of standing stones. The site boasts its own "split stone", similar to the one in the first Outlander book when Claire was transported back in time to 1743.

Ian Anderson was our tour guide and he was AMAZING! He was very knowledgeable about places we visited and made sure we hit all the famous spots. He also had great dinner suggestions. He and my spouse had a great time discussing history. I would recommend asking for him as a tour guide

This tour was fantastic! Our guide, Roger, is truly an expert and we learned so much from him! His vast knowledge of each site as well as the history of Scotland was more than we could have ever asked for! We traveled all day in a very comfortable van and he made sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommend this tour!!
