This beautiful picture of our Piobaireachd Window - The Battle of Waternish was taken during Piping Live! as the Old Blind Dogs took to the stage. This window refers to the military use in the history of Bagpipe music. The symbolism, Jacobites against the Union represented by; the Jacobite flag, a claymore and thistles, the first Union flag, a broadsword and a rose. The “fiery cross”, used as a signal to summon the clans. The Saltire seen as a cloud formation. It was created by John C Clark as part of a triptych of Piobaireachd windows here.

We thought it was jsut too beatuiful not to share!

About the Restaurant - The National Piping Centre

*Please Read* - In the last few weeks we have had a growing number of our restaurant guests at The Pipers' Tryst just not show up for booked tables. We know that coming back out to a restaurant at this time might seem scary, or that your plans can change last minute. But we ask that if you can't come to The Pipers' Tryst that you please call or email us to let us know. At a time when we are operating at lower capacity due to social distancing, guests not turning up makes a huge difference, we may turn away diners then a table sits empty all night, leaving us with no income at all. Our hospitality industry needs your support right now, so please, if you can't make your booking just let us know!
