Splash of Tartan

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is aiming to be an even greater visual feast in 2017 by adding an extra Splash of Tartan to procedings.

Splash of Tartan - Royal Edinburgh Military TattooWith the help of the Scottish Clan Events Fund and the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs, the 2017 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo will feature up to 300 Clansmen and women from the great Clans on special clan nights.

The man given the job of organising this particularly stirring part of the festival is Jamie MacNab, Chief of the MacNab clan.

Over 50 of the great clans are signed up and the word is going out to clan members around the world to support their clan night.

So even if you have never been involved in a clan gathering before, your clan needs you now!

Of course not everyone can march, some of the clans have already got their full quota of marching members but, for others, the invites are yet to go out.

Even if you don’t want to march, clan members are called upon to support their clans on the relevent nights, so where ever you might be, why not come along, don your tartan and make your clan’s night the best night of the Tattoo!

If you want to be involved, or if you just want to watch, here are the dates – correct as of 26 January 2017.

Contact your clan to get involved (the deadline is March) or, if you want us to organise tickets and accommodation for you, highlighted dates denote dates that we currently have availability for ticket and hotel packages to the 2017 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo – which doesn’t make me too popular because my wife is a MacMillan!
