Castles, Kilts, Drums and Drams – Edinburgh Military Tattoo
This tour explores all things royal in the Scottish Capital with visits to the official royal residence in Scotland, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, and the magnificently imposing Edinburgh Castle. Heading out of the city we visit Stirling Castle, which before the union with England was one of the most used of the Scottish royal residences with many Kings and Queens having been born, been crowned or died here. We also visit Scone Palace which, during its history has been the seat of parliaments and another crowning place of the Kings of Scots. Our delve into Scottish traditions would not be complete without a little education on the national tipple, Scotch Whisky, which we rectify with a visit to the Scotch Whisky Experience. The pinnacle of this tour must be our evening spent at the spectacle that is the world-famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo. We enjoy an evening of energetic performances, dazzling displays and fantastical fireworks all set against the backdrop of Edinburgh’s imposing castle. The tattoo celebrates musicians and performers from around the world and has a yearly theme, which in the past have included Scotland’s homecoming, creativity and nature.
