Scotland & Edinburgh’s Royal Military Tattoo Parade

Monday August 5th 2024

A country steeped in history and surrounded with stunning natural beauty; Scotland is always a top destination for visitors. As we take a cruise on lovely Loch Lomond and visit the majestic Kelpies, we will also explore the Trossachs National Park and marvel at the engineering of the Falkirk Wheel. We will also take a tour in Edinburgh City before taking in the annual Royal Military Tattoo Parade at Edinburgh Castle.
