EDINBURGH TATTOO

Each August, Edinburgh plays host to the unforgettable “Edinburgh Military Tattoo” which is performed against the backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.  This popular tour includes tickets to this military marvel and a number of excursions to enjoy some truly magnificent Scottish scenery.

The three star Mercure Perth Hotel is a charming converted 15th century watermill located in the heart of the friendly city of Perth. Although contemporary in style it is welcoming and comfortable and due to the nature of the old building there are steps to both public rooms and bedrooms which are located over several floors.
