The Royal Military Tattoo is Scotland’s biggest, bestselling outdoor spectacle. The venue itself is situated in the most popular part of the city by the Castle, high above the skyline.

The Tattoo is an iconic Edinburgh institution and a sellout year after year. Music, dance, and precision display with the Massed Pipe Band Drumming, the Massed Military Bands, cultural troupes, singers, and the poignant refrain of the Lone Piper against the stunning backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.
