The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is an annual series of Military tattoos performed by British Armed Forces, Commonwealth and International military bands and display teams on the esplanade of Edinburgh Castle in the Scottish capital, Edinburgh. The event takes place annually throughout August, as part of the wider Edinburgh Festival (a collective name for many independent festivals and events held in Edinburgh during August).
Extremely difficult to purchase tickets for the Tattoo, many of the tours have Tattoo tickets or offer them for purchase as an optional. If one want to travel to Edinborough during Tattoo time it is best to take an excorted tour.
