The organisers of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo have invited a number of Clan Chiefs to take the salute from the guard of honour at each performance of the Tattoo during the 2017 season and we are delighted that our Chief , Iain Gunn of Gunn, has been asked and agreed to do this on Saturday the 5th August at the 7:30 pm performance. The organisers are encouraging as many Clansmen and Clanswomen as possible to join the performance and add a “splash of tartan” to the audience and to this end have allocated a number of guaranteed tickets to the Clan.
A good number of the Clan have already booked to be at the tattoo, and the Clan Gunn Society has therefore confirmed that the 2017 mini-gathering will be organised around the tattoo weekend.
To this end we will be holding the Clan Gunn Society’s AGM followed by a high tea/early supper in the Apex hotel prior to the tattoo. We will have sole use of the Heights Restaurant which has a wonderful view of Edinburgh Castle and following the meal we will be able to head up to the castle en masse with plenty of time to get to our meeting point.
We will be arranging a Sunday lunch at the Raeburn Hotel in Stockbridge which will give us the opportunity to mull over the events of the previous night and say our goodbyes. Even if you weren’t able to reserve tickets for the tattoo, we would be delighted to see any members of the clan at the AGM or either of the meals and as the Edinburgh Fringe and Festival will be in full swing, there will be plenty to see and do.
The cost of the high tea dinner on the 5th August is £25 per person and will include a main and desert course with fresh brewed tea and coffee. The cost of Sunday lunch at the Raeburn on the 6th August will be £20. In both cases drinks are not included in the price.
