Fodor's Review

The Edinburgh Military Tattoo may not be art, but it is certainly Scottish culture. It's sometimes confused with the Edinburgh International Festival, partly because both events take place in August (though the Tattoo starts and finishes a week earlier). This celebration of martial music features bands, gymnastics, and stunt motorcycle teams on the castle esplanade. Dress warmly for late-evening performances. Even if it rains, the show most definitely goes on.
