Continuing our journey north, we arrive at our hotel on the outskirts of Stirling before dinner.
Royal Yacht Britannia & Edinburgh Military Tattoo
We have a morning at leisure and enjoy an early lunch of soup and sandwiches, before heading into Edinburgh. Our first stop is the Former Royal Yacht Britannia, the Queen's former floating palace. Marvel at her interior and stealth, having travelled over a million nautical miles. Next, 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.
Falkirk Wheel & The Kelpies
We have a late start today, as we head out to Falkirk, where we enjoy a 50-minute boat journey. Experience the might of the huge Falkirk Wheel, an engineering masterpiece which lifts boats up to join the Union Canal, 35m above. Next, we travel to see the world's largest equine sculptures 'The Kelpies'. We enjoy a guided tour, which allows us to go inside a Kelpie, and marvel at the complexity of engineering that created these incredible works of art.
We continue south back to the local area and home.
