The Edinburgh Military Tattoo Festival was an once in a lifetime event. The crowds were immense but worth the hassle. The process for lining up and moving toward the stadium was a bit confusing and if you are a bit bothered by crowds it’s an issue. But it moves quickly and orderly. Lots of bath facilities took you can purchase a seat cushion for $1 and you definitely want to do that. The seats are cold and hard. Fabulous view of the castle with fireworks, cannon fire, and a fabulous show of bagpipes and military bands. Delightful!
