Come join us in Scotland!
Let’s visit Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands during August, a favorite trip, and one we just took last summer. During the month of August, Scotland and the city of Edinburgh present the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, perhaps the most impressive display of hundreds of bagpipes and Scottish dancers you’ll see, all in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle. Check out the video below.
We’ll also enjoy the Edinburgh Fringe Festival also going on during August. This national party billed as the world’s largest arts festival. Last year there were over 6,000 (that’s not a typo) entries including one-act plays, musical performances in all genres, street performers, and just about every other kind of performance art one can imagine. The fun starts mid-morning and goes until 2 AM the next morning.
Next we’ll head to Inverness by train. From there we’ll journey to Loch Ness and the Isle of Skye seeing castles and national parks along the way.
