Featuring over 80 meticulously researched film locations, Scotland an Outlander Tour includes three self-drive itineraries between Edinburgh, Inverness, Skye and Glasgow, plus 'Detour’ suggestions for those with extra time.
So versatile is Scotland, that it also stands in for Paris and North Carolina. So if you’re after the Palace of Versailles from S2, Aunt Jocasta’s River Run plantation in S4 or Fraser’s Ridge of S5, this is the guide for you. On-screen they might be thousands of miles apart, but on set they can be visited in a day!
Fans thirsty for behind-the-scenes gossip will enjoy the bonus chapter featuring interviews with the location managers who found themselves on set with the stars!
Chapter 1 includes background on Diana Gabaldon, her books and the hit TV series Outlander. It talks about the show’s plot, and what we can expect in season 6.
Chapter 2 outlines the practicalities of the driving tour – the three different routes, some things to bear in mind (such as travel during the Edinburgh Festivals) and how saver passes can cut down on costs. Especially valuable to the reader is the map and 'Scene Spotter’, which is a table of film locations detailing where they were used on-screen.
Chapter 3 is the tour itself, and the main section of the book. Starting in Edinburgh, and travelling anti-clockwise to finish near Glasgow, this describes what to see each day – whether a castle, a walk or a village – and how the locations link to Outlander. The real Scottish history is included too, so the book will still be attractive to non-fans. A 'Detour’ section suggests additional locations for extended tours.
Chapter 4 is a collection of 'behind-the-scenes’ interviews with location managers, describing their experience of hosting the Outlander cast and crew. It also includes a first-hand account of the author’s own Outlander tour with three young children.
