If you want to see where Claire and Jamie tied the knot, Glencorse House and the Old Kirk chapel offer a unique experience for the ultimate Outlander fan.

Sitting in the grounds of Glencorse House, the Old Kirk dates back to the 17th century, initially earning its reputation as the beloved place of worship for Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson.

Today, the Old Kirk has been made famous for its unforgetable role in Outlander. As the setting for the nuptials in Season 1, Episode 7, it provides the backdrop to the most watched episode in the show's history.

Guests are warmly welcomed to experience first hand the most romantic and idyllic setting for a wedding. When you visit you'll understand why it was chosen as the perfect backdrop for this iconic scene. Visits can be arranged on a individual basis or as part of a tour group, and guests are invited to explore the estate, Kirk and graveyard. In addition you'll be given fascinating insights into what took place behind the scenes during filming.

Appointments can be made by mailing Sarah: [email protected].

Glencorse Old Kirk is open all year round but visitors are asked to make a prior appointment as the chapel is also a wedding venue. Entry is £10 per person and this includes a guided tour.
