Edinburgh Tattoo & The Kelpies

Edinburgh Tattoo & The Kelpies





4 DAYS FROM £379


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. The Kelpies are the world’s largest pair of equine structures. At 30 metres tall (100 feet) they stand majestically above all around them and pay homage to the working horses of Scotland which used to pull barges along Scotland’s canals and worked in the fields in the area where they now stand.


New for 2019, our base for the tour is the very comfortable PITBAUCHLIE HOUSE HOTEL which lies in three acres of landscaped gardens just south of Dunfermline (an approximate 45 minute journey from Edinburgh). Features of the hotel include a restaurant, and three 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.

Departing Newark early morning, we travel via the scenic Pennines and cross the border into Scotland at Gretna. We then bypass Glasgow and Falkirk so to our base in Dunfermline.

Saturday 24th August
A morning visit to The Kelpies and a 30-minute guided walking tour to discover the history and design behind these breath-taking sculptures. We return to our hotel for a mid afternoon dinner/high tea before departing for the highlight of the tour – the early evening (7.00pm) performance of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. We then return, arriving back at our hotel for late evening.

Sunday 25th August
After a leisurely breakfast our coach will transfer us back into central Edinburgh for shopping/sightseeing at your leisure – hop on a sightseeing bus, take a walking tour of the old town or perhaps visit the Queen’s Scottish residence –the Palace of Holyrood House; there is plenty to see and do in the Scottish capital.
