Thank you for visiting Highlander Tours! Our kilted Highlander guides would be delighted to take you on a tour of their home country! Each of our guides served as Jamie Fraser's Highland men in the Starz hit series Outlander, which makes them uniquely qualified to guide Outlander tours. We also provide a variety of other bespoke services to cater to the Scottish experience you are looking for.
The Highlander Team
Andy was a self employed electrician, who had always dreamed of being an actor. He took the first step towards that dream when he joined Real People casting 3 years ago and managed to get some great featured parts. When the call for Outlander came along Andy jumped at the chance and spent about 60 days on seasons 2 and 3.
After Outlander Andy invested in kilts, swords, muskets, targes and full Jacobite outfit and started meeting Outlander fans from all over the world . Andy the Highlander was born - he started taking people on tours and loves every minute! Andy loves to learn and share Scottish history.
Grant is an ex-offshore geophysicist turned writer/actor who hails from Dundee and lives in Edinburgh. He began work as a supporting actor on Outlander in September 2015. He has worked on Seasons 1, 2, 3 and 4. It was on Season 2 that he met Andy. They endured many days and nights in freezing cold fields in the rain, sleet and snow but they wouldn’t change it for the world .
Having lived in Edinburgh for almost 16 years, Grant is a wealth of knowledge on the capital and knows some great spots for eating, drinking and obviously carousing! He very much likes whisky and good company and if there is haggis as well then the day is complete!
James is an experienced and knowledgeable tour guide who worked in tourism while living and travelling in New Zealand for 5 years. After 8 years travelling the world he returned home to Scotland to continue his excellent services in sightseeing, history and culture.
In addition to guiding tours, James is a professional photographer and loves to get outdoors to photograph our stunning Scottish landscapes. He loves to guide all over Scotland but his favourite tours are the ones that take him to Outlander sites (he filmed on Seasons 3 and 4!), the Isle of Skye, and the mountains of Glencoe.
