The Royal Highland Show takes place next week at the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh. 

This year will be the Show’s 179th event.

The organisers have again partnered with travel providers this year in order to streamline visitor travel to the event.

Working closely with Lothian Buses, Edinburgh Trams, First Group, Stagecoach, Citylink, Scotrail, Edinburgh Airport and Traveline Scotland, an integrated plan has been created making it easier to travel to the Show. 

The four-day event showcases the country’s best in farming, food and rural life, providing an opportunity to get up close to farmyard animals, sample some exceptional food and drink and experience rural living at its most vibrant.

With ten dedicated transport hubs located throughout central Scotland and direct CityLink bus services running from 25 locations across the country, there is an option for everyone, including bus, tram or train.

Organisers are advising visitors to plan their visit to take in the regular highlights including the Grand Parade and show jumping as well as new attractions for 2019 including the ‘Shindig at the Show’ which will see groups of eight attempt to dance the largest ever Eightsome Reel, featuring music by 2015 The Voice winner Steve McCrorie.

Another not to be missed event will be the Clydesdale Celebration, organised by the Clydesdale Horse Society. It will showcase the iconic Clydesdale Horse in a celebration of the breed as the power behind farming for over 100 years. This will take place in the Main Ring on Friday at 4.15pm.

The Royal Highland Show takes place from 20 – 23 June. Tickets are still available online.
