About
Our private tour visits four unique ancient Scottish castles.   This tour visits Drummond Castle & Gardens ,  Stirling Castle  , Doune Castle  and Linlithgow Palace.    Drummond Castle Gardens doubles as the French royal Palace of Versailles in TV drama Outlander. Doune Castle plays Castle Leoch, home to Colum MacKenzie and his clan in Outlander TV series. Stirling Castle is one of Scotland’s most impressive castles due to its imposing position and impressive architecture. Linlithgow Palace is the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots and it was the backdrop for some of the most harrowing scenes of the TV show Outlander

Had this tour booked months in advance and the tour operator contacted us and said they were overbooked and cancelled. Not a good way to introduce a new tour on TripAdvisor or Viator.
