The Edinburgh Tattoo – Royal Yacht & Falkirk Wheel

Staying at the four star Westerwood Golf and Spa Hotel

 

3 DAYS | 11th August 2017

The Edinburgh Military Tattoo held every August is the World’s most famous military spectacle and an unforgettable blend of music, colour, pomp and pageantry. Steep rocks form the dramatic back-drop to the Tattoo’s Castle setting and when subtle lighting picks out the lone piper playing a lament from the ramparts, few in the audience fail to be moved by the atmosphere. It really does have all the ingredients for a truly memorable event.

Our base for the weekend is the four star Westerwood Golf and Spa Hotel situated in the heart of Scotland between Glasgow and Edinburgh with stunning views of the Campsie Hills. The hotel has just completed a £14 million refurbishment and offers a lounge, dining room, bar and a state of the art leisure club. All bedrooms offer subtle décor, gorgeous bathrooms, flat screen TV, telephone, hairdryer and complimentary refreshment trays.
