From Edinburgh
we head northwards and pass Stirling with views of its impressive Castle, the Wallace Monument and the Ochil Hills beyond. Then it's into the Highlands through the scenic beauty of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, once home to the infamous cattle thief and rogue, Rob Roy MacGregor. Weíll hear tales of his adventures as we make our way through the sprawling Strathyre Forest.
Next follow the shoreline of beautiful Loch Earn before stopping in Crieff to visit a local whisky distillery* On your visit to The Famous Grouse Experience you will learn how the 'water of life' is made and you can sample a wee dram for yourself. There will also be time for a leisurely lunch in the distilleryís award-winning restaurant.
Explore the peaceful Hermitage and take a short woodland walk to see the spectacular Black Linn Falls on the River Braan. Next stop in Dunkeld with its spectacular cathedral on the banks of the River Tay before returning south through Highland Perthshire and through the ancient Kingdom of Fife. Youíll get amazing views of the Forth Rail Bridge as we make our way back to Edinburgh.
Back in Edinburgh, you will have time to have dinner and explore the city before making your own way to Edinburgh Castle. Once seen and never forgotten: thereís always something magical about the World famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and the setting high up on the esplanade of Edinburgh Castle is simply breathtaking. Sit back and enjoy the drama, excitement and spectacle of the visiting performers, highland dancing and the stirring massed pipes and drums as the sun sets over Scotlandís romantic capital city.

Tell me about the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo?
Staged every year as part of the world-famous Edinburgh Festival, the Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a unique and memorable celebration of music, dance and military pageantry.  Set against the spectacular backdrop of the floodlit Edinburgh Castle, almost a thousand musicians, pipers, drummers, singers and dancers perform at The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo on the cobbled Esplanade.
Each year some of the most memorable highlights are the stirring performances of the Massed Pipes and Drums and the Massed Military Bands that emerge from the huge castle gates playing the stirring battle tunes of Scotland's famed regiments.  
Add to this the spectacular displays from the many overseas performers who bring music, action and colour to the event in Edinburgh and you have a winning blend that always keeps the Tattoo fresh, exciting and alive, even for the many faithful fans who return here every year.  
This unforgettable spectacle is brought to an emotional and poignant close each evening as a lone piper, spotlit high on the castle ramparts, plays a haunting lament. Fireworks, a mass chorus of Auld Lang Syne from the audience and the roar of jets from a military flypast bring the curtain down on a truly memorable night's entertainment.
