This vacation is now fully booked, but the good news is: we’ve already scheduled the next one for 28 June to 8 July 2020. Details will follow soon, so check back again 🙂

There’s only one thing that’s better than a tour of Outlander filming locations in Scotland…our Outlander Art Experience! Join us on this 10-day, first ever Outlander-themed art tour and really connect with the land where Jamie and Claire travelled through centuries and lived their love that knew no time nor borders.

With your sketchbook journal in hand, feel the creative flow as we visit Doune Castle (Castle Leoch), Culross (Cranesmuir), the Battlefield of Culloden, Jamie’s Printshop in Edinburgh and much, much more.

Drawing and painting facilitate contact with reality and create a strong bond with places – something that’s more difficult to experience during conventional travel. The stronger the emotion, the deeper it will be remembered in your mind. We work with watercolours, charcoal, graphite and other materials, and integrate treasures we find on our journey, such as oak leaves or feathers.

When you draw you see a lot of things you wouldn’t even notice at a simple glance or with a snapshot.

The tour includes a printmaking workshop at Highland Print Studio in Inverness and we’ve built in elements of creative writing which will help you turn your sketchbook into your own personal Outlander story. To enrich your creative time-travel experience further, you’ll also get the opportunity to learn about herbal remedies used by Claire and Geillis in a session with a Scottish herbalist. A truly authentic experience from which you will leave inspired and refreshed.
