One of Scotland's most beautiful towns and an Outlander filming location.

After crossing over the Firth of Forth and its iconic bridges, we arrive at the village of Culross. The village is the best preserved example of a ‘burgh’ from the 17th and 18th century and is definitely a highlight of any visit to Scotland with its white harled houses and cobbled streets. Widely acknowledged as one of the most scenic villages in Scotland, it is perhaps unsurprising that it has featured on many film and TV shows, most notably Outlander, where scenes for both season 1 and 4 were shot.

We will spend around 90 minutes in Culross giving you ample time to explore the village and visit some of it’s highlights including Culross Palace (optional extra).
