Edinburgh Military Tattoo Tour

Greenock Ocean Terminal

The Tattoo Tour brings you from Greenock past Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, Stirling, and finally Edinburgh, to experience the world famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo event.


The Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a world-famous event which broadcasts to around 100 million people all over the World. The first Tattoo took place in 1950 and it has become one of the main reasons tourists flock to Edinburgh in August.

We are offering Tattoo tours bringing our guests from your ship to the event and bringing them back to the port at least 1 hour before your ship leaves. Although we do not book your tattoo tickets, we can assist in the booking process with you. You can book your tickets here.

Our tour departs from Greenock and we will make our way to Edinburgh passing through the gorgeous Loch Lomond and Trossachs Park and Stirling Castle. We will then make our way to Edinburgh in plenty of time for the show.

Please Note: For any of our guests who have mobility problems, please let us know since access is restricted to all vehicles on the Royal Mile. You will need to book a special convoy pass at the time of booking your seats and you will only be able to join the convoy at the beginning of the event as the return covoy is too late for us to get back to the ship in time. (Not available on Saturday showings). For more information on disability access at the Tattoo, please click here.
