Itinerary

Day 1

Morning departure from your local pickup point to Perth. We arrive at the hotel late afternoon with the evening at leisure.

Day 2

We begin the day in Dundee. One of Scotland's seven cities, Dundee has acquired a few names over the years - 'one city, many discoveries', 'jute, jam and journalism', and, very recently, a 'UNESCO City of Design'. Shop 'til you drop as you browse through the latest styles in high street stores in the Overgate Shopping Centre and along High Street, or wander along Perth Road and find contemporary art galleries and quirky gift shops. We return to the hotel for an early evening meal before making our way to Edinburgh. Take your seat on the Esplanade inside the Castle grounds and watch performances of the Massed Pipes and Drums and the Massed Military Bands that emerge from the huge castle gates, playing the inspiring battle tunes of Scotland's famed regiments.

Day 3

Day at leisure in Perth. The hotel is situated in central Perth, ideally placed for perusing the stylish shopping centre, array of outstanding art galleries and museums or perhaps a gentle stroll along the River Tay.

Day 4

After a leisurely breakfast we check out of the hotel and make our return journey home.

Salutation Hotel

The Salutation Hotel is situated in the heart of the historic City of Perth. Reported to be the Oldest established hotel in Scotland, the Salutation has been welcoming guests through its doors since 1699. Today, the welcome is as warm as it ever was offering traditional hospitality with all modern comforts. Due to the age and nature of this grand old building all bedrooms are individual in size and shape but all have as standard – en-suite bathrooms, television, hairdryer, direct dial telephone and tea and coffee making facilities. The hotel has a lift but there are some internal steps.

Includes

  • Return coach travel
  • 3 nights Salutation Hotel Perth half board
  • Admission to Edinburgh Tattoo
  • Visit to Dundee

Any bookings made on-line where the child prices are not showing correctly, will be amended and a revised confirmation sent.

Disabled Access

Edinburgh Tattoo

Its ancient, historic setting, on the Esplanade (the Tattoo venue) of Edinburgh Castle is matchless. Located high above the skyline of the oldest and most popular part of the City, perched on an extinct volcano some 135 metres above sea level. The unique setting of the Tattoo may present access difficulties for some, particularly the elderly, people with disabilities and individuals with limited mobility. Those with known heart conditions (Angina, Previous MI, LVF, etc.), respiratory conditions (COPD, Asthma, etc.) and vertigo sufferers may also be affected when trying to access the Esplanade.

Castlehill, the old-cobbled approach to the Esplanade, is a steep inclined walk of some 100 metres which, consequently, may prove difficult for some. In addition, there is on average a further 100 metres climb up the gentler slope of the Esplanade, followed by a dozen or so steps to be negotiated to reach the front rows of all the spectator stands in the arena. The rest of the seating in the amphitheatre is accessed by more steps which are quite steeply tiered.
