The 2016 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo still lives up to its reputation of being the greatest show on earth. You can read more about this year’s theme of Tunes of Glory in our preview article.

The performers from across the world, wowed the crowds through a two hour show.

The entire cast assembled for the grand finale, with a beautiful tribute to David Bowie as his face was projected onto the Castle and the fireworks were set off to Life on Mars.

All the photos taken at ground level are by Chris Pendleton of Iconic Tours.
