3***Tontine Hotel - Peebles

The Tattoo has a proud history. They stretch back for almost seven decades. Following the production of ‘Something About a Soldier’ in the Ross Bandstand in 1949, it was decided to create an event which ran alongside the existing Edinburgh Festivals. The official Tattoo was duly created with its first performance in 1950. 2020 production will not be a disappointment with its 70th Anniversary Performance.

Peebles in the Scottish Borders
Nestled within an area of outstanding beauty and just twenty-three miles south of Edinburgh, the Borders town of Peebles, one of Scotland’s hidden treasures sits beside the majestic River Tweed. On a sunny day there is nowhere more beautiful than the walk along the River Tweed with the backdrop of the Tweeddale Hills. Beginning in the Tweedsmuir Hills the mighty River Tweed winds its way through Peebles and enters the North Sea at Berwick-upon-Tweed a journey of ninety-eight miles. More Atlantic salmon are caught in this river than any other European river.

Floors Castle and Gardens Kelso
Nearby Floors Castle, home to the Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe is the largest inhabited castle in Scotland and is part of our tour including the excellent gardens. The jewel in the crown of this ‘Scottish Splendour’ holiday is of course Friday evening spectacular production of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, an awe-inspiring pageantry of colour and variety drawn from the four corners of the globe.
