For 2011, the event arena at the Edinburgh Castle esplanade has had a £16 million make-over and been brought up to a standard more appropriate for the enjoyment of the world class entertainment provided. Amongst the improvements, the capacity has increased to a maximum of 8,700 people, whilst the size of the seat space has increased by 35%. The structure remains a temporary one and the dates of the Tattoo for 2011 continues for one month only, between the 5th – 27th August 2011.

The musical programme, as ever, will feature exciting contributions from the Massed Bands of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines, Highland Dancing, the Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland and the stirring music of the world-famous Massed Pipes and Drums, plus International acts.

Whilst the Tattoo is one of the highlights of a stay in Scotland, choosing the right accommodation will be paramount. Why not check out the selection of Scottish holiday houses available at Scotts Castle Holidays today?
