First Minister is guest of honour at the Tattoo
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was the guest of honour at The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo last night. Ms Sturgeon participated in the opening ceremony with a traditional Gaelic Toast taken with the evening’s Lone Piper, Cpl Joey Davies from The Royal Highland Fusiliers, 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland.
She said: “It is an honour to take the salute at this year’s Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Bringing together performers from across the world, the Tattoo is an integral part of the Edinburgh Festivals and undoubtedly one of the highlights of the summer. It is wonderful to see it going from strength to strength in what is now its 68th year gracing Edinburgh Castle’s Esplanade.”
