Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

After breakfast, we have time to spend at leisure. Then after lunch at the hotel, we depart for central Edinburgh where there’s free time before making your way to the castle to take your seat for the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. The show brings together musicians and performers from every part of the world for a fabulous display of international culture. After the performance we travel back to our hotel.

Ayrshire Coast, Ayr & Troon

Today we explore the Ayrshire Coast and make our first stop at the popular seaside resort of Ayr. This little beach town boasts a charming seafront with an esplanade, long sandy beach and many fine Georgian and Victorian buildings. Our next stop is Troon, which overlooks the Isle of Arran and offers stunning, sandy beaches, which featured in the popular historical series Outlander, and a wealth of charming independent cafés and unique boutiques.

 

Gretna Green

On our way home, we enjoy a stop at the marriage capital of the world, Gretna Green. In this famous village lies the original spot where young eloping couples would marry ‘over the anvil’ at the Blacksmiths Shop.
