Lea Harrison, Edinburgh Trams Managing Director, explained:

The world-famous show is the highlight of Scotland’s agricultural calendar, and we’re expecting even more visitors than usual as it celebrates a landmark anniversary.

To help people to make the most of the occasion we’re pulling out all the stops to keep people moving and offering value-for-money travel deals.

Ahead of the event, which takes place between June 23 and 26, the specially commissioned tram wrap has received plenty of attention, illustrating the history of the Royal Highland Show from its humble beginnings to the worldwide attraction it is today.

Edinburgh Trams has supported the show for many years, and we’re delighted to play a part in recognising its long and rich history while once again helping visitors to enjoy this celebration of rural life, Lea added.
