Locals and tourists alike frequent The Pipers' Tryst taking full advantage of Scotland's famous hospitality. Above the restaurant are 8 cosy bedrooms, available for single and double occupancy throughout the week. The National Piping Centre is also a highly sought after venue catering for weddings, civil partnerships, conferences, special events, exhibitions and concerts.So why not take a wander up Hope Street to explore everything they have to offer
