This morning, motor a short distance to visit the Hopetoun House, which dates back to the 17th century. In Outlander, the Hopetoun House was used as the setting for the residence of the Duke of Sandringham in Season 1, Episode 10. Next, motor a short distance to visit the ruins of Midhope Castle, which original was used as one of the stand-ins for the Lallybroch Estate. Continue to the village of Blackness and visit Blackness Castle. The 15th-century castle was seen in Season 1, Episode 6 and 8; the heartbreaking scene, where Jaime gets whipped by the notorious Black Jack Randall was filmed here. Your final visit of the day will be to Culross Palace, which was built between the later part of the 16th century and into the 17th century by Sir George Bruce. Today, the National Trust maintains the property, which includes the magnificent garden in the back of the property. The garden was used as Claire Randall’s herb garden. Return to Edinburgh.
In the evening, head to Torphichen Inn to enjoy an Outlander inspired evening. The evening will include Scottish music and the reading of excerpts from the books. Also, enjoy an Outlander inspired meal with your fellow travellers. TBC
