We are delighted to return to Edinburgh once again for the famous Edinburgh Tattoo. Each year's Tattoo is very much a 'global gathering', showcasing the talents of musicians and performers from every corner of the globe. In addition to this, the Tattoo has been televised in more than 40 countries. An annual television audience of 100 million watches the coverage worldwide. This is not to be missed. We stay in the ‘Fair City’ of Perth on the banks of the River Tay – a super base with elegant Georgian townhouses, cobbled streets and medieval spires. EARLY BOOKING RECOMMENDED
