The most famous alleyway from Edinburgh used in the TV Series Outlander

Edinburgh Self-Guided Walking Tour

Welcome to Jule’s self-guided Outlander tour of Edinburgh. See the Outlander filming locations for yourself and learn more about the history and folklore behind the hit TV series.

This tour will focus on the history of the Jacobite uprisings and illustrate the long-lasting effects these had on Scotland as a country. You will also be introduced to some Scottish mythology that plays a central role in Outlander as well.

Your guide will be Jule. Originally from Germany, Jule moved to Edinburgh in 2017 to study a Masters’ degree in English Literature. (Choosing this city may have slightly been influenced by watching Outlander one too many times.) After finishing, she decided to stay and has been working as a full-time tour guide around the city since 2019. She has a degree in Celtic Studies as well as English Literature and feels passionately about Edinburgh’s and Scotland’s history. She is available for history tours, Harry Potter tours, dark history tours, Outlander tours and Edinburgh Castle tours.

This walk will take you through Edinburgh’s historic Old Town and along the Royal Mile. You will get to see all filming locations in the city centre, with plenty of opportunities to take your own pictures in places you’ll recognise from the popular TV series. The tour will end at Holyrood Palace, the ancient seat of kings and queens of Scotland.

By the end of the tour, you’ll also be an expert on Jacobite history.

At the end of the tour, a list of recommendations awaits for more Outlander-themed activities to do in and around the city, as well as places to eat great Scottish food and sample the best Scottish whisky!
