Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

We took the kids in to see the Tattoo last Wednesday night. We had been a couple of times in the past but neither of them had been before. It was a brilliant spectacle! As far as content goes, probably the best one we have seen so far. The theme was “Kaleidoscope” – as the kaleidoscope was a Scottish invention (and we knew that already from our visit to the V&A Museum in Dundee!).

The different colours were pegged against different musical themes, with military bands, dancers and drill teams performing to them, with lights and projections onto the Castle as a backdrop.

Tickets go on sale early in the year and are generally quite easy to get. We had seats at the lower end of the scale and as you will see from the pictures, they were still really good.
