About the tour: Edinburgh Military Tattoo, Stirling & the Trossachs

On this spectacular coach tour, we combine one of the greatest shows on earth, the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, with an exploration of the wonderful sights of Scotland. Take a scenic drive around the beautiful Trossachs on route to the city of Stirling, before heading to the stunning capital of Edinburgh, where you can take some free time before you enjoy the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. The Tattoo is a 90-minute spectacle of innovative production, heart-stopping sound and fantastic fireworks. On this tour, we also spend time on the ‘bonnie banks’ of Loch Lomond, where pretty villages stand along its shores.

    IMPORTANT NOTE

    Edinburgh Military Tattoo

    Castlehill, the old-cobbled approach to the Esplanade, is a short walk of some 80 metres, though on a steep incline, and consequently, may prove difficult for some. In addition, there is on average, a further 60 metres followed by a dozen or so steps to be negotiated to reach the front rows of all spectator stands in the arena where generally the seating is quite steeply tiered.

    Travel Insurance from £27.00 (5 days) (includes insurance premium tax, prices per person). Single Room Supplement from £109.00 (5 days).

    We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
