This spectacular evening includes performances from pipers, drummers, singers and dancers. Enjoy an excursion to the famous Royal Yacht Britannia, where you can follow the footsteps of many royal and influential people that have also previously boarded the ship. Not forgetting visits to the lovely towns of Peebles and Moffat.
DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – We make our way up to the Scottish border, making a short stop in Peebles before arriving at our hotel. For many years this market town has been cherished by locals and visitors alike and highly valued for its picturesque and unspoilt character.
Day 2 – This morning we enjoy a couple of hours at leisure in nearby Moffat before heading for Afternoon Tea. There is no evening meal tonight; instead, after some time to relax, we take you into Edinburgh where you can enjoy dinner in one of the many pubs or restaurants. Then this evening we enjoy the highlight of this tour – the incredible Edinburgh Military Tattoo performance, taking place on the esplanade of Edinburgh’s iconic castle, expect an unforgettable evening of music, ceremony, theatre and dance that is like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
Day 3 – Today is a free day to spend as you wish.
Day 4 – After breakfast, we follow the footsteps of many famous and royal individuals as we travel to the Royal Yacht Britannia which was home to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family for over 40 years. Having sailed an impressive 1,000,000+ miles around the world, this famous ship which is now berthed in Edinburgh has been voted as ‘Scotland’s Best Attraction’ for eleven years running and it’s no surprise why.
