Every August, high above the city, the sound of bagpipes, drums and marching feet fills the air as the world-famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo plays to packed audiences.
In Aberfeldy, a small market town, we visit the Aberfeldy Distillery and see the Black Watch Monument before visiting the Crannog Visitors Centre at Loch Tay.
After a morning at leisure, we travel to the Falkirk Wheel, the world’s only rotating boat lift. Today we learn of the turbulent history, heritage and culture of the Scottish Borders, renowned for its untouched natural beauty, picturesque villages, castles and abbey ruins.
Back-Roads Touring have hand-picked an extensive portfolio of quality properties across Europe and to ensure the very best experience on each of our tours hotels may vary to those listed in this itinerary.
Mobility: All of our tours involve walking and require our guests to board and disembark our vehicles several times a day making this tour unsuitable for those with reduced mobility. The Royal Edinburgh Military TattooEdinburgh Castle5-27th August 2016 The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a spectacular display of music, choreography and creativity, set against the incomparable backdrop of Edinburgh Castle. There was also the challenge of reconfiguring the band instruments from their traditional natural scale down to concert pitch in order to integrate their sound with singers, the brass and woodwind of the military bands and the sound and texture of the Shetland fiddlers. Arriving in Wellington at the Westpac Stadium to find a life-sized replica of Edinburgh Castle constructed at one end of the arena certainly set our students’ nerves buzzing.
For 65 years, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo has inspired and entertained its audiences.
The storytelling, the score and the programme signalled the themes of military and wider social history.
Our Pipes and Drums task was to join with a contingent of select New Zealand bands to make up the Massed Pipes & Drums, alongside the military Pipes and Drums including The Royal Scots Boarderes, The Royal Highland Fusiliers, The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, The Highlanders and The Royal Air Force.
The Edinburgh Tattoo is the British military’s public face and opportunity to connect with the people it serves in a fusion with civilian bands and cultural performers.
Our band was teamed up with the Pipes and Drums of the Royal Dragoon Guards who guided us through the daunting responsibility of leading out our ranks in the marching formation of the opening medley of the show.  It was a thrilling experience to finally stand in front, facing out with head and eyes up to the record-breaking crowds that packed the Stadium for each of the four evening performances. We explore this fascinating city with its medieval and Georgian architecture and its imposing castle. Next we visit the magnificent ruins of Linlithgow Palace and discover the history of this royal palace. We visit Jedburgh Abbey and the Burgh of Selkirk, before returning to Edinburgh where our tour ends.
To hear that all available accommodation was full to capacity because of the Show brought home to everyone the immense scale of the event. Throughout, the storyline of the NZ show was rich in New Zealand and Britain’s collective history and shared purpose. We set about the three days and nights of practices and dress rehearsals working under the close supervision of the Senior Pipe Major and Drum Major, learning the precision drill movements and routines.
Returning to Edinburgh, we take in Dunkeld, Perthshire’s ancient capital and Loch Leven, the largest loch in the Scottish Lowlands. Enjoy free time this afternoon before we meet up for the Edinburgh Tattoo, the highlight of our trip.
The event has become a celebration of music and dance and attracts performers from all over the world.

Paul Weindling, history of medicine professor at Oxford Brookes University, describes his search for the lost victims of Nazi experiments. The chairman of the board at ESL a€” then proprietor of the desert wasteland in Nevada known as a€?Area 51a€? a€” was William Perry, who would be appointed secretary of defense several years later. EUCACH.ORG PanelIn a 2-hour wide-ranging Panel with Alfred Lambremont Webre on the Transhumanist Agenda, Magnus Olsson, Dr. Henning Witte, and Melanie Vritschan, three experts from the European Coalition Against Covert Harassment, revealed recent technological advances in human robotization and nano implant technologies, and an acceleration of what Melanie Vritschan characterized as a a€?global enslavement programa€?.Shift from electromagnetic to scalar wavesThese technologies have now shifted from electromagnetic wave to scalar waves and use super quantum computers in the quantum cloud to control a€?pipesa€? a reference to the brains of humans that have been taken over via DNA, via implants that can be breathed can breach the blood-brain barrier and then controlled via scalar waved on a super-grid.
Eventually, such 'subvocal speech' systems could be used in spacesuits, in noisy places like airport towers to capture air-traffic controller commands, or even in traditional voice-recognition programs to increase accuracy, according to NASA scientists."What is analyzed is silent, or sub auditory, speech, such as when a person silently reads or talks to himself," said Chuck Jorgensen, a scientist whose team is developing silent, subvocal speech recognition at NASA Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley. We numbered the columns and rows, and we could identify each letter with a pair of single-digit numbers," Jorgensen said.
People in noisy conditions could use the system when privacy is needed, such as during telephone conversations on buses or trains, according to scientists."An expanded muscle-control system could help injured astronauts control machines. If an astronaut is suffering from muscle weakness due to a long stint in microgravity, the astronaut could send signals to software that would assist with landings on Mars or the Earth, for example," Jorgensen explained.
These are processed to remove noise, and then we process them to see useful parts of the signals to show one word from another," Jorgensen said.After the signals are amplified, computer software 'reads' the signals to recognize each word and sound. Our Research and Development Division has been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the California Department of Corrections, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Massachusetts Department of Correction to run limited trials of the 2020 neural chip implant. We have established representatives of our interests in both management and institutional level positions within these departments. Federal regulations do not yet permit testing of implants on prisoners, but we have entered nto contractual agreements with privatized health care professionals and specified correctional personnel to do limited testing of our products. We need, however, to expand our testing to research how effective the 2020 neural chip implant performs in those identified as the most aggressive in our society. In California, several prisoners were identified as members of the security threat group, EME, or Mexican Mafia. They were brought to the health services unit at Pelican Bay and tranquilized with advanced sedatives developed by our Cambridge,Massachussetts laboratories.
The results of implants on 8 prisoners yielded the following results: a€?Implants served as surveillance monitoring device for threat group activity. However, during that period substantial data was gathered by our research and development team which suggests that the implants exceed expected results.
One of the major concerns of Security and the R & D team was that the test subject would discover the chemial imbalance during the initial adjustment period and the test would have to be scurbbed.
However, due to advanced technological developments in the sedatives administered, the 48 hour adjustment period can be attributed t prescription medication given to the test subjects after the implant procedure.
One of the concerns raised by R & D was the cause of the bleeding and how to eliminate that problem.
Unexplained bleeding might cause the subject to inquire further about his "routine" visit to the infirmary or health care facility.


Security officials now know several strategies employed by the EME that facilitate the transmission of illegal drugs and weapons into their correctional facilities.
One intelligence officier remarked that while they cannot use the informaiton that have in a court of law that they now know who to watch and what outside "connections" they have. The prison at Soledad is now considering transferring three subjects to Vacaville wher we have ongoing implant reserach.
Our technicians have promised that they can do three 2020 neural chip implants in less than an hour. Soledad officials hope to collect information from the trio to bring a 14 month investigation into drug trafficking by correctional officers to a close. Essentially, the implants make the unsuspecting prisoner a walking-talking recorder of every event he comes into contact with.
There are only five intelligence officers and the Commisoner of Corrections who actually know the full scope of the implant testing. In Massachusetts, the Department of Corrections has already entered into high level discussion about releasing certain offenders to the community with the 2020 neural chip implants. Our people are not altogether against the idea, however, attorneys for Intelli-Connection have advised against implant technology outside strick control settings. While we have a strong lobby in the Congress and various state legislatures favoring our product, we must proceed with the utmost caution on uncontrolled use of the 2020 neural chip. If the chip were discovered in use not authorized by law and the procedure traced to us we could not endure for long the resulting publicity and liability payments. Massachusetts officials have developed an intelligence branch from their Fugitive Task Force Squad that would do limited test runs under tight controls with the pre-release subjects. Correctons officials have dubbed these poetnetial test subjects "the insurance group." (the name derives from the concept that the 2020 implant insures compliance with the law and allows officials to detect misconduct or violations without question) A retired police detective from Charlestown, Massachusetts, now with the intelligence unit has asked us to consider using the 2020 neural chip on hard core felons suspected of bank and armored car robbery. He stated, "Charlestown would never be the same, we'd finally know what was happening before they knew what was happening." We will continue to explore community uses of the 2020 chip, but our company rep will be attached to all law enforcement operations with an extraction crrew that can be on-site in 2 hours from anywhere at anytime. We have an Intelli-Connection discussion group who is meeting with the Director of Security at Florence, Colorado's federal super maximum security unit. The initial discussions with the Director have been promising and we hope to have an R & D unit at this important facilitly within the next six months. Napolitano insisted that the department was not planning on engaging in any form of ideological profiling.
I will tell him face-to-face that we honor veterans at DHS and employ thousands across the department, up to and including the Deputy Secretary," Ms.
Steve Buyer of Indiana, the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, called it "inconceivable" that the Obama administration would categorize veterans as a potential threat.
