Virtual Tour of 1740's Scotland

Diane Nicholson will be hosting this live Virtual Tour of 1740’s Scotland, which will take you back in time to visit 17 historic 18th Century (and older) locations. For each location we will show you the historic map location from the 1740s, and then we’ll take you on a virtual tour of that location today. Using a combination of videos and photos, you’ll see how much, or in many cases, how little these places have actually changed over the last 270 years.

The tour lasts two hours and 10 minutes and is followed by a live Q&A. It includes: eight well known and gorgeous Outlander filming locations, seven fascinating Outlander book locations, a historic location involved in the 1745 Jacobite Uprising plus a further very special location for Outlander fans…

This live tour next takes place on Saturday 19th February, both at 4.00pm UK/SCOTTISH time.

We now also have a recorded 2 hour 10 minute version of this tour which is available on a 24 hour rental on our video-on-demand (VoD) channel.

Virtual Tour of 1740s Scotland

Have you ever wondered what the Outlander filming and book locations were like back in the 1740s? A couple of years ago, we invested in one very large historic map which documented the whole of Scotland in the 1740s – every town, every road, every property. It’s an incredible resource and we want to share some of its wonderful secrets with you.

Diane Nicholson will be hosting this live Virtual Tour of 1740’s Scotland, which will take you back in time to visit 17 locations. For each location, we will show you the historic map location from the 1740s, and then we’ll take you on a virtual tour of that location now, comparing one against the other. Using a combination of videos and photos, you’ll see how much, or in many cases, how little these places have actually changed over the last 270 years.

The Tour is packed with interesting information – historic and Outlander related.

The Virtual Tour includes a visit to:

  • Eight well-known Outlander filming locations based around Fife, near Edinburgh.
  • Seven Outlander book locations, based around Inverness and the Highlands.
  • One historic location, involved in the 1745 Jacobite Uprising.
  • One very special location for Outlander fans…
  • If you love historic maps, Scottish history and Outlander, then this tour is for you…

Andy the Jacobite at Lallybroch

Your tour guide for this tour is Diane Nicholson. Diane is passionate about Scotland, her history and the people who lived here, especially in the 18th century. Andy and Di are also passionate about Outlander and have running their Outlander-themed Tours since 2017.

Using many photographs taken by Andrew, plus other imagery and video and a very special 18th-century map, Diane takes you back to the time and places where the Mackenzies and Frasers were both in the Outlander storyline and in real history.  You also get to hear about the history behind some of the stunning Outlander filming locations, which is different to the history and timeline of Outlander.

Diane paints a picture of what Scotland was like back then compared to now; you get to see and feel both. Many people have commented that “it is like being there”.
