The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is the most spectacular show in the world, enjoyed by an international television audience of 100 million.
Monday We travel to Cumbernauld.
Tuesday Morning at leisure with an afternoon visit to Edinburgh with included tickets to the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. This afternoon will be free for you to explore the Capital of Scotland at your own leisure. You will also have time to have your evening meal at a place of your choice, before the coach collects you and transfers you to the Military Tattoo this evening.
Please note it will be a late return to the hotel and some passengers may find the walk to the castle difficult. There is a short but steeply inclined walk up Castlehill, the old cobbled approach to the Esplanade. There is then a further 60-metre walk on average, followed by steps up to the spectator stands where generally, the seating is quite steeply tiered.
Wednesday Today we enjoy a visit to The Kelpies, the largest pair of equine sculptures in the world. Towering above the Forth & Clyde Canal, The Kelpies are a feat of engineering, each made with 300 tonnes of structural steel, and are a monumental tribute to the horse power heritage that was vital to the early industries of central Scotland. We will enjoy a 45-minute guided walking tour, before making our way to Stirling, home to the historic Stirling Castle.
Thursday We depart after breakfast and return home.
