We are delighted to offer this new tour for 2018. Based in Scotland, the Glasgow Tattoo showcases some of the finest musicians and dancers from Scotland, Ulster, and across Europe, in this fine show. The show allows allow the bands and performers to showcase their talents for the first time on a large scale in an indoor Arena. The net has been cast far and wide to bring together bands and dancers of the highest standard. The Glasgow Tattoo will now be an annual event for the City of Glasgow.
Situated on the pretty village green in the conservation village of Drymen, the 3 star Winnock Hotel is just 14 miles from Glasgow and 4 miles from Loch Lomond. The hotel, although fully modernised in terms of facilities, has retained its 17th century charm with original log fires, beamed ceilings and a warm welcome. All bedrooms are en-suite with colour T.V., telephone and tea/coffee making facilities. There is no lift but the hotel is on two floors only, ground and first. The Winnock is the perfect base from which to explore the Trossachs, Central Scotland and its many attractions.
