Outlander fans can now visit the hit TV series Scottish filming locations, with a free audio guide available on GeoTourist’s nifty mobile tour guide app.
GeoTourist’s new ‘VisitScotland with Outlander’ audio tour was created in association with Visit Scotland. It allows Outlander fans to do their own self-guided tour around Scotland’s 42 filming locations where seasons one to four are filmed.
Jenni Steele, Film and Creative Industries Manager at VisitScotland, commented to GeoTourist:
“The Outlander Scottish Filming Locations Tour is a fantastic way for viewers to immerse themselves in the TV show and fall in love with Scotland, just as they fell in love with the story of Claire and Jamie. What better way to spend Valentine’s Day than to create your own romantic adventure in these unique settings.
“The impact of film and TV goes far beyond the production spend. With research finding that one in five visitors are inspired to plan a trip to Scotland after seeing it on-screen, the opportunities for the tourism industry are immense.”

Dunkeld House Hotel’s guide on the app provides information about the hotel’s 280-acre estate. Along with snippets of information about Dunkeld’s other historical landmarks, such as Thomas Telford’s Bridge, Dunkeld Cathedral, and Dunkeld’s quaint little houses.
