The Highland Military Tattoo shall take place for its 4th year at Fort George, Ardersier, near Inverness between 8-10 September 2017.
Fast becoming a ‘must-see’ event in the Scottish tourism schedule, 2017’s Highland Military Tattoo will offer locals and visitors alike a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the heritage and culture of the Scottish Highlands and Moray against the stunning backdrop of the spectacular Fort George.
The 18th century fortress shall host the event which shall feature a mix of traditional and more contemporary acts, including, massed pipes and drums, highland dancing, competitions, vignettes, flypasts and a spectacular fireworks display.
In Visit Scotland’s Year of History Heritage and Archaeology, the programme will celebrate the rich military heritage of Fort George, the Highlands and Moray. Ahead of the 100th Anniversary of the RAF in 2018, which evolved from the RFC, we are featuring this milestone and the 75th Anniversary this year of the formation of the RAF Regiment.
Gaelic will also feature in the repertoire during the year of Gaelic Welcome, when multi-national audiences will have the opportunity to learn a few words themselves.
