We are meeting on the High Street of Inverness, just below the Market Brae Steps from where we make our way through Inverness, stopping at sights that are relevant in the Outlander novels (be aware that we will not be visiting any filming locations on this tour).

We are following Claire's footsteps along the High Street, make our way up to the castle where I will tell you about Flora MacDonald. Along the shores of the River Ness I will give you insight into why so many Scots emigrated to the Americas and Eastern Canada after the Jacobite Rebellion failed. We will explore the stories behind various myths told throughout the Outlander novels, feel like a wounded Jacobite soldier after the Battle of Culloden and try to immerse ourselves as much as possible in the world of Jamie and Claire.

Throughout the tour I will refer to the novels, either telling you about specific bits or reading an extract that refers to the exact spot we are at the moment. I am a literary historian which enables me to give you both, the story of Claire and Jamie and the stories behind it, actual historical facts. After this tour you will know more about the novels, the history of Inverness and will have truly experienced Scotland.

I am a literary historian, a German lass that lost her heart to and in the Highlands. I love Scotland and have set roots here. Currently I am working on my phd, researching literary tourism and Outlander.

I will share my enthusiasm for anything Outlander related with you and make you fall in love with Scotland, just like I did. Culture, literature and history are my passion. By offering AirBnB Experiences I am able to connect visitors to the place I lost my heart to.

This is a walking tour of the city centre of Inverness. We are visiting historic sites that are relevant to Outlander, therefore, you might not be able to find them in your travel guides. We are outside the whole time, walking at a pace that suits everybody. The walk is about 3 km (c. 1.8 miles) with only a little uphill walking to get to Inverness Castle. Some steps might be along the way.

What an amazing tour! Alex and her boyfriend Brodie were really punctual, personable and knowledgeable. I loved getting to know more about the outlander series and books, and also both shared personal anecdotes that made the tour come alive. My husband hadn’t watched the series at all and could keep up too. Highly recommend!

Alexander (and her boyfriend Brodie) shared a charmingly passionate and effervescent tour, showcasing the best bits of Inverness, wrapping it all up in a fascinating history lesson intertwined with the Outlander series. We loved every minute of it (including the gory bits!).

I loved it. Alexandra is very knowledgeable. I truly recommend any of her tours. This is a must do if you are coming to Inverness and want to lead a wee bit more about outlander and the history of the city in general.

We booked this trip after a visit to culloden and it complimented the day wonderfully. Alex is extremely knowledgeable about the Outlander series as well as Scottish history and culture. Having currently only reached the end of series two Alex was able to tailor the tour to fit our needs without any spoilers. This was superbly done with a nice mix of 18th century Scottish history and more. We had lots of questions and Alex helped us understand historical fact from fiction. Some of the sites were beautiful and others haunting and sobering. I highly recommend this to anyone who has an interest in Outlander series (it doesn't matter if you have finished it!) or the jacobite rebellion in general. Alex is a superb host and really puts you at ease. Very nice person and to top it all off she's an expert!

We had an amazing time with Alexandra (Alex). She was super informative and engaging when talking about Outlander, Inverness and/or Scotland. It was evident that she was extremely passionate about the subject on her tour. This made her very interesting to listen to and kept our attention for the entirety of the tour. This tour was scheduled to last 2 hours only however, Alex was kind enough stretch this this timing to well over the time limit, allowing us to chat more about how Diana Gabaldon took inspiration from Scotland's rich history and traditions to write her mind blowing novels. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is a massive Outlander fan or even anyone looking to simply walk around Invevrness listening to amazing old stories about its past. Definitely worth it!

Alexandra really knows her stuff! I was amazed at all the fascinating stories that Alexandra had to share and truly learnt so much on the tour, not only about Outlander but about Scotland too! I've watched the entire outlander series but have not yet finished the books but Alexandra's passion has motivated me to read the books as there were information she hinted is not on the show. (I've even ordered the books since getting back home haha) She was really understanding and considerate when we were slightly late travelling from Edinburgh. Her hospitality was superb as she even extended her time to ensure she completed the tour and was well prepared for any questions we had on Inverness and Outlander. I definitely recommend Alexandra if you are a fan of Outlander and want to know more about it because chances are she will know! Thank you for a great tour Alexandra, you were amazing!
