The Pipers Package – Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo


The Piper’s Package at The Scottish Cafe

Enjoy a delicious light summer supper with wine in the award-winning Scottish Cafe & Restaurant within the Scottish National Gallery which boasts stunning views across Princes Street Gardens to North Bridge.

Dine in one of Edinburgh’s most famous landmarks in the heart of the magnificent Princes Street Gardens and experience the very best of Scottish hospitality. Supper will conclude with a Toast to the Piper who will then lead the way to the Edinburgh Castle Esplanade, via Ramsay Lane and bypassing the main Tattoo queue, for the Tattoo performance.

What your package includes

  • Two-course light summer supper followed by coffee or tea
  • A glass of sparkling wine on arrival, a large glass of specially selected wine with your meal and a dram of whisky to finish
  • A piper to lead you on foot from The Scottish Cafe & Restaurant to the Tattoo arena via Ramsay Lane, bypassing the main queues
  • A prime location seat in the outdoor arena with exceptional views of the performance

It is important to note that this route includes lots of stairs and Ramsay Lane is extremely steep and cobbled which may not suit those with mobility issues.

Whilst there is no dress code for this package, we ask that you respect your host and fellow guests and dress accordingly, i.e. avoiding short trousers and sports shoes. As you are sitting in the outdoor arena for the Tattoo performance, a warm top layer or coat is recommended

This is a mixed dining experience and you will be seated at shared tables for dinner.

Please note that all bookings are made via the tattoo office here
