Join Us On The Outlander Trail

Join us on a Scotland-wide #ScotsMagOutlander tour this weekend!


Our March issue was an Outlander special, and it was also the first to get its own limited-edition US cover, sold exclusively in Barnes & Noble stores across the US.

To celebrate this historic moment, we thought we’d take you with us on a weekend-long journey on the Outlander trail…

History expert David Weinczok and I will be heading all over Scotland this weekend, to give you a virtual tour of filming locations. From Culloden Battlefield to Edinburgh’s Old Town, we’ll investigate the sites’ roles in Outlander, as well as their real-life historical significance.

On Saturday, April 7, we’ll be up north, touring the filming locations around Inverness. We’ll stop off at the Clava Cairns, Culloden Battlefield, and the Craig Dunain standing stones – posting live video tours, pics and info along the way.

On Sunday, April 8, we have concocted a slightly ambitious plan for our journey back to Edinburgh. On our to-do list are Linlithgow Palace, Midhope Castle, Blackness Castle and Culross in Fife! Can we do it? There’s only one way to find out…

Follow along live with the hashtag #ScotsMagOutlander on Periscope, Twitter and Facebook. We’ll embed the videos here next week, too, so don’t worry if you miss us on the day!
