As the stands are now fully complete on the castle esplanade, this can only mean one thing – The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is just around the corner! It takes place between 7 – 29 August 2015.

This year visitors can enjoy the theme of East meets West. Sit back and enjoy the wonderful performers including the famous mass pipes and drums, international dancers, percussion group from four continents and not to mention the peerless Lone Piper.
