A morning at leisure before an early lunch of soup and sandwiches before we head into Edinburgh. Our first stop will be to the Former Royal Yacht Britannia, after which we head to the centre of Edinburgh where there is free time for shopping and sightseeing. We then take our reserved seats for the highlight of our holiday, the 9.00pm performance of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. We return to our hotel after the tattoo. (Dinner is not provided tonight). Please note: The Tattoo is located at the castle, a historic site in which the seating is outdoors and only accessible by many steps, therefore it is not suitable for people with walking difficulties.

We have included a guided tour which allows you to go inside a Kelpie and marvel at the complexity of engineering that created these incredible works of art.
