The Pipers Dining Package with The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo

We are thrilled to be hosting our popular Pipers Package together with The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
Dine within one of Edinburgh’s most famous landmarks in the heart of the magnificent Princes Street Gardens

6:30pm for the 9:30pm performance

Experience the very best of Scottish Hospitality in the iconic Scottish National Gallery located in the heart of Princes Street Gardens. Following supper, your host will lead the way to Edinburgh Castle Esplanade, via Ramsay Lane, bypassing the main Tattoo queue, for the Tattoo performance.

  • Two-course light summer supper with a mulled apple juice to take-away
  • 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 host to lead you on foot from The Scottish Cafe & Restaurant to the Tattoo arena via Ramsay Lane, bypassing the main queues
  • A prime seat in the outdoor arena
  • The official Tattoo Souvenir Show Programme

It is important to note that Ramsay Lane is cobbled and on a steep incline which may cause challenges for those with mobility issues. If you have any concerns regarding accessibility, please contact us at

Please note, whilst there is no dress code for this package, we ask that you respect your host and fellow guests and dress accordingly, i.e. smart casual, 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.

Bookings for our hospitality experiences will be based on shared tables with other guests.
