Hotels near the Inverness Tattoo
It may not be as big as the world-famous Edinburgh Tattoo, but the annual Inverness Military Tattoo is the Highlands' only tattoo and has been running for almost as long. Edinburgh started in 1950 and Inverness the year after.
The event is held on the Northern Meeting Park with performers marching nightly to the park from Inverness Castle over the River Ness. For 2011, alongside the Military Band of the Black Watch Battalion Army Cadet Force and traditional Higland dancing, there are the thrills and spillls of the Stannage International Stunt Team.
All in all, not only exciting and breathtaking, but also colourful, spectacular, noisy and, most importantly, unmissable, especially in 2011's 60th anniversary year.
