Some may choose to make the most of the Edinburgh countryside, with picturesque gardens and parks. Whilst others may choose to hit the high street for a spot of retail therapy.

Day 1

Travel to your hotel

The Greatdays’ team can offer suggestions for a stop-off on the journey. Enjoy time to relax before dinner at the hotel.

Day 2

Free time in Edinburgh and evening at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

After breakfast we head into Edinburgh for a full day with plenty of time to see the city’s many attractions. Optional visits can be arranged to visit the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen’s official residence in Scotland, and the home of Mary, Queen of Scots. Visits can also be arranged to The Royal Yacht Britannia, the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, or perhaps a relaxing boat trip on the Firth of Forth.  You will have ample time to get something to eat before making your way to the Castle for the start of a spectacular evening of entertainment. Note that the streets leading up to the Castle are cobbled and that there are steps leading to the Tattoo seating. At the end of the show we make our way to the coach to return to the hotel late evening.
