Scotland - The Edinburgh Tattoo

Scotland - The Edinburgh Tattoo

Sun 12 Aug 2018: Escorted Holiday to The Edinburgh Tattoo with Johnsons Coaches 5 Day

Book Now

The Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a spectacle of music, light and precision movement performed by the massed pipes and drums of the Scottish Regiments and military units from all over the world. Steep rocks form a dramatic backdrop to the Tattoo’s Castle setting and, when subtle lighting picks out the lone piper playing a lament from the ramparts, few in the audience fail to be moved by the atmosphere.
