Vacations & Travel - - Travel Talk -

The Royal Ed­in­burgh Mil­i­tary Tat­too is one of the most pop­u­lar events in Scot­land, and has been shown around the world for decades with over 100 mil­lion peo­ple watch­ing it in more than 30 coun­tries ev­ery year. Many chil­dren who watched wide-eyed in their lounge rooms years ago, have made the pil­grim­age to Ed­in­burgh for the Tat­too, and this year will be no dif­fer­ent. From 4-26 Au­gust, the 2017 Tat­too will cel­e­brate Scot­land this year, with the theme of ‘Splash of Tar­tan’. The Tat­too hosts over 1,000 civil­ian and mil­i­tary per­form­ers from all over the world each night, with the back­drop of Ed­in­burgh Cas­tle the ul­ti­mate set­ting. This year, Scot­tish clan chiefs have been in­vited to lead their clans­men to the Cas­tle on des­ig­nated nights, with all tak­ing part in the open­ing cer­e­mony. Ev­ery­one who at­tends this year, with a clan con­nec­tion or not, is in­vited to dress in tar­tan. ed­in­tat­too.co.uk; visits­cot­land.com
