The Castle on the rock provides a spectacular
backdrop for the world-famous Edinburgh Royal Military Tattoo,
held in August each year.
The action packed programme includes a variety of
international performers and of course the traditional
favourites; the massed bands of the Royal Marines, the Band of
the Royal Regiment of Scotland, Highland Dancing and the
poignant sound of the Lone Piper, high on the Castle ramparts
playing a haunting lament.
Weekend Tattoo tours are based in the four star Hilton
Strathclyde, about an hour's drive from Edinburgh. We spend the
day in the city with tickets for the Tattoo in the evening. An
evening meal is not included on Saturday.
