Edinburgh - Tattoo & Royal Yacht         6 - 11 August

plus Falkirk Wheel & Palace of Holyrood House

Carberry Tower Mansion Hotel

Retrace the steps of royalty with a very special break in Scotland. Edinburgh Castle is the backdrop to the Royal Military Tattoo.  This unforgettable evening of music, ceremony, theatre and dance takes place on its esplanade as part of the Edinburgh Festival. Beginning in 1950, it has now developed into a world-renowned and diverse spectacle including international performers and a wide range of music. Nearby is the Palace of Holyrood House, the official residence of the British monarchs in Scotland which is connected to Edinburgh Castle by The Royal Mile.  Here you can enjoy the palace and then find lunch at The Cafe at the Palace.  For over 40 years the Royal Yacht Britannia sailed around the world taking Her Majesty the Queen and her family to distant shores. Now you can see inside this unique vessel and, through the audio-guide, experience the five main decks for yourself. There are lifts throughout.  The Falkirk Wheel, the only rotating boat lift in the world,  is an impressive piece of engineering.  We will be on the boat as the Wheel lifts it up from the Forth & Clyde Canal to join the Union Canal 35 metres above during the 50-minute journey which ends back at our starting point.  We will break our journey to and from Scotland with overnight stays.  Our hotel just outside Edinburgh is the Carberry Tower Mansion Hotel, an 18th century castle with 35 acres of parkland and much wildlife such as deer and pheasants.  The Queen often visited with her sister, Princess Margaret, as did their parents
