Need some bagpipes?

If you need to hire bagpipes then our amazing ‘house’ pipers Ranald and Roddy can be booked individually or alongside the ceilidh. They can pipe in guests for a wedding, during a meal, pipe in the haggis for a Burns Nights or provide a rousing tune to accompany you down the aisle!

Need A Ceilidh Band & Piper Combo?

If you’re looking for a fab ceilidh band with your bagpipes look no further! We love Scottish dances like Dashing White Sergeant, Gay Gordons, Virginia Reel, Riverside and Cumberland Square Eight and love a lively Strip The Willow to finish! We start off with easy dances and then progress based on dancing ability. We can include slower dances like St Bernards Waltz or trickier reels like the Eightsome if guests are experienced.
