Edinburgh Tattoo & The Forth Road Bridges

Edinburgh Tattoo & The Forth Road Bridges





4 Days from £412


Scotland’s cultural & governmental capital, Edinburgh, has much to offer its visitors – The Royal Mile with its street entertainers and Arthur’s Seat are among its famous attractions, while Princes Street offers shopping of the highest standard. The Military Tattoo takes place at Edinburgh Castle and still continues to attract over 100 million viewers worldwide.

New for 2021 our tour will include a sightseeing cruise including Inchcolm Island and Scotland’s Forth Bridges. A wonder of the modern world, the bridges tower side by side over the Firth of Forth and represent the pinnacle of engineering from three centuries.

Our base for the tour is once again the very comfortable PITBAUCHLIE HOUSE HOTEL which lies in 3 acres of landscaped gardens just south of Dunfermline (an approximate 45 minute journey from Edinburgh). Features of the hotel include a restaurant, and 3 lounge/bars, one of which overlooks the gardens. All of the en suite bedrooms have tv, telephone, iron/ ironing board and hospitality tray. Please note the hotel does not have a lift; some ground floor rooms are available but these are on a request basis only.
