Discovering the land that inspired Outlander in and around Loch Lomond and the Trossachs

Have you been caught up in the mystical and spell-binding Outlander series, wishing to be swept away to Claire and Jamie’s world? Come and experience the Outlander filming locations that inspired the novel and TV series in and around Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.

Loch Katrine
Loch Katrine was the inspiration and setting for Sir Walter Scott’s poem The Lady of the Lake and is set within quintessential Trossachs landscape. Soak up the peace and tranquility of the area, and discover the roads travelled by Roger and Brianna when they first got to know each other after meeting in Inverness. Why not take an Outlander themed trip along Loch Katrine aboard the SS Sir Walter Scott Steamship?

Deanston Distillery
Located at the gateway to Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park and housed in a former cotton mill, Deanston Distillery provided the setting for Jamie’s cousin’s wine warehouse on the docks of Le Havre. Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the distillery to discover the centuries-old tradition of whisky distilling.

Drummond Castle Gardens
Standing in for the ornate park and orchard of the Palace of Versailles in France, Drummond Castle Gardens near Crieff are one of Europe’s finest examples of a formal garden. Designed in the Italian parterre style, the gardens are approached by a mile-long driveway of beech trees that leads to the imposing walls of Drummond Castle. Look out for the peacocks which lend an aristocratic air to the garden’s scenery! Note: the castle is not open to the public.

UPDATE 30/04/2020
 
Unfortunately due to the extension of lock down the hotel will remain closed – we had hoped to be back as a team for the 30th April however that has not been possible. Our understanding is the Government will be announcing new guidelines from 7th May that will outline any changes to the current situation and a way forward for the future. We have a few of our team coming back into the business from 4th May who will be working on getting in touch with all customers who had a booking during the lock down period to resolve any outstanding matters (23rd March to 16th May as an interim start) – if you were due to stay during this time and if you haven’t already done so you can reach out via email to res@loch-lomond.co.uk and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible. We would ask for patience during this time as we have quite a backlog to get through however rest assured once we have dealt with the current period we will then move onto the next in a date ordered process. Stay safe and well!
