The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is an annual series of military tattoos performed by British Armed ForcesCommonwealth and international military bands, and artistic performance teams on the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle in the capital of Scotland. The event is held each August as one of the Edinburgh Festivals.

Our 4-day, 3-night trip is based at the 3-star Rob Roy Hotel in Aberfoyle, on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis. The Rob Roy Hotel is wonderfully situated in idyllic countryside at the gateway to the glorious Trossachs and is set within Scotland’s first National Park. Named after the legendary local folk hero Rob Roy McGregor, The Rob Roy offers excellent food friendly staff, and good old fashioned value for money.

The Hotel is a short stroll along the banks of the Forth River to the picturesque village of Aberfoyle where you will find Scottish made Arts, Crafts and Clothing, and 3 Visitor Centres. The splendours of Loch Katrine, Callender, Historic Stirling and Loch Lomond are all within easy striking distance, and the hotel is an ideal centre for touring the Trossachs, Perthshire and the Highlands.

Each of the 103 bedrooms features everything you need to ensure a comfortable well-rested stay with us. Fresh decor, well appointed ensuite bathrooms, bedrooms equipped with flat screen televisions, tea and coffee making facilities and wi-fi is all part of the experience. The Rob Roy Hotel is the perfect place to relax.
