Nothing says Scotland like the sound of bagpipes. The sound is sheer adrenaline for your ears, designed to carry on the wind from village to croft and mountain to glen. You probably wouldn’t want them in the house, but to see them played by a lone, kilted Highlander high on the Edinburgh battlements at sunset is an evocative poem that conjures up all the terrible power and pity of Scottish military history. But then bring them together in a massed squadron, with the storm of a hundred pipes and drums, and the experience is nothing less than electrifying. With lights, marching bands, daredevil displays of skill and military showmanship featuring hundreds of performers gathered from all corners of the UK and across the world, the Edinburgh Tattoo sweeps you irresistibly into its crests and swells. You’ll clap, you’ll laugh, you’ll gasp - you’ll love it!
