A Tattoo To Remember...


Words can not describe the magic of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
Edinburgh Castle is the backdrop with a host of sights and sounds 
from around the world that are just spectacular.
You have to see it to believe it. 








The crowd went wild when the New Zealand Army Band 
performed the Haka bringing cheers all around.





A night to remember....

  11. Your photos have brought tears to my eyes. I love pipe bands, and have been to a few highland games here at home.The atmosphere must have electric

    And there is nothing like the Haka being performed anywhere.
