Indulge in an escorted excursion via motorcoach to Edinburgh Castle to see the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. As the sun sets, take your place in your reserved seats in the Esplanade seating area and join thousands of spectators gathered to experience Scotland's most popular attraction. Enjoy a breathtaking 1.5-hour performance that features military precision drills with massed bands, bagpipes, and drums, all representing various international Scottish Regiments. Marvel at traditional Scottish dancing, and enactments of historical events. Take in the wonder of guest performers from all over the world. Be awed by a finale that includes the most moving of all Scotland's performances - a lone piper, floodlit on the castle battlements, his haunting music reaching out across the historic setting and into your memory forever.
