Edinburgh Tattoo - 2 day

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!

You’ll have some free time to look around and find a nice place for dinner before making your way to the castle for the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo performance. After the performance, we will take you back to your hotel for your overnight stay.

Day 2 After breakfast, we check out of the hotel and board the coach for the journey home.

Please note: We advise you to be prepared with waterproofs etc in case of inclement weather during the Tattoo. It will go ahead whatever the weather – no performance has ever been cancelled.
