The Edinburgh Military Tattoo is an annual event which sees thousands of tourists flock to Edinburgh every year. For this reason, on a few of the event dates, the Cruise lines have added a longer stay at Edinburgh Ports to allow for their passengers to experience the event.

Clyde Coast Tourism are now also offering tours to the tattoo that will give you a great Scottish experience as well as bringing you safely to and from the event in plenty of time before your ship departs.

The two Edinburgh ports that this tour operates from is South Queensferry Port and Newhaven Port. Please note both of these ports are tender ports.
