The dining room is a relaxed space boasting a well stocked whisky shelf and locally brewed beers. The menu is full of Scottish produce, from Stornoway black pudding to Mull of Kintyre cheddar. Locals and tourists alike frequent The Pipers' Tryst taking full advantage of Scotland's famous hospitality.
