SCHOOL TOURS AND GROUP TOURS
We take the hassle out and put the history in!
|I would like to take this opportunity of thanking Ecosse Battlefield Tours for all their help in making our Western Front Battlefield Tour totally unforgettable for the band. I am so glad that the Royal British Legion Scotland recommended you. The support offered to the band during the visits to the various cemeteries and battlefields was so helpful. There are so many memories that we took away with us, of what I think is now being classed as the "best" trip the band have had. Lynne Fraser, Secretary, Ballater & District Pipe Band.|
Enjoy an exciting historical journey of discovery and remembrance.

See the most poignant and interesting sites of the famous landings and the efforts to break out from the beach head. It is a feast for your eyes and senses - an emotional and educational experience for young and old alike.
Among all the battlefields of the Great War, the largest is world-famous - Verdun. The battle was so fierce that it became the mother of all the great battles in the 20th century. Some village and hilltops were just blown away forever. Fought over 300 days and 300 nights with no let up in fighting, there were more than 300,000 dead and missing, 400,000 wounded. To truly understand the profound horror of the Great War and understand the sacrifice of, a visit to Verdun is a must.
