It is here, in the very first episode, that Claire visits the stone circle and is projected into the past, in 1743. Note that in reality there is no stone circle on this site, which does not detract from its beauty). Then the Highland Folk Museum (the reproduction of the Highland farms when Claire joined Dougal to receive the rents from the clan tenants). And finally the famous battlefield of Culloden. Arrive in Inverness in the afternoon and check into your accommodation for the night.
