Now in its 179th year, the Royal Highland Show is still proving to be popular with visitors as Scotland’s largest celebration of farming, food and rural life, and this year more customers than ever chose to beat the traffic and take the tram. 

Over the four days, tens of thousands of visitors flocked to the Royal Highland Show taking advantage of increased tram frequency and dedicated event customer service staff.  The Tramway ensured that even the little farming enthusiasts were entertained with the chance to win an iPad by searching for clues around the showground.    

Lea Harrison, Edinburgh Trams Managing Director, said:

“We’re delighted that customers are taking the tram to get to the showground, which is just a short walk from our Ingliston Park & Ride stop.  The Royal Highland Show remains an exciting fixture in Edinburgh’s event calendar and by taking the tram visitors were able to glide past the traffic and not miss a moment.”
