"When we got engaged we knew we wanted a wedding with a Scottish theme. We both love visiting castles, ceilidh dancing, adventures and Lego, when we found the piping centre we knew this was the right place for our greatest adventure yet, our wedding. The staff are amazing, the are friendly, and really take the time to find out about your needs. The venue is fabulous, we booked the hotel and this really added to our adventure. The food is delicious, the piping museum was great, all our guests loved it. The best part for us was that the staff really got to know you, the service was so personal. We feel the piping centre is a special place now and we look forward to future trips to the restaurant and hotel. thank you."
Amanda & Robert Taylor


"I first visited the National Piping Centre to attend a Wedding Fair and fell in love with the venue straight away. It has so much charisma and quirkiness about it, making it a unique and unforgettable wedding venue. I approached a member of staff at the Wedding Fair who happily gave me a guided tour and shortly afterwards we were all booked up and ready to go.

The service provided by Sophie, Caitlin and the rest of the team was absolutely fantastic, they truly impressed us by going above and beyond from start to finish. They were absolute professionals and gave expert advice about everything (including things we never would have thought of). The girls even impressed our photographer by suggesting a few photo opportunities using the buildings wicked features, which turned out brilliantly.

On the day, the staff made sure everything ran smoothly and accommodated our every need. The Piper even played the Star Wars theme tune upon my husband's request! We also had a marryoke which the staff were more than happy to get involved in. Yes, we have you all on camera shaking those hips!

Our guests still talk about what a magical day it was and everyone was extremely complimentary about the service and the delicious food. We can honestly say, we didn’t have to worry about a thing, as everything was taken care of on our behalf. We cannot thank the staff at NPC enough for making our day so special!"

"Thank you so much for all your help in planning, organising and overseeing our wedding day. A fantastic venue and yourself and every member of staff could not have been more friendly, helpful and attentive. We loved every minute of our big day. Please pass n our thanks to everyone involved, especially the kitchen – we loved the meal, as did all the guests. Thank you again for all your help from our first visit, to the wedding day. Hopefully we’ll be in for a meal soon"

Lizi & Ally Dunn


"Where do we begin. You have been with us throughout since booking up last August and have helped with every query since. We were delighted to hear you were going to be on shift on Saturday and you were amazing! Your hard work made our day go so very smoothly. We loved every minute of it. Also every wedding company that you recommended were first class. We were a bit worried that we may feel we were having a manufactured wedding. But we did not. Every company treated us as individuals and their customer service skills were great.

Thank you Caitlin and all at National Piping Centre from the bottom of our hearts. You are one fantastic team and you are one amazing wedding coordinator - we had the best wedding we could have hoped for."
Lorna & Dave Baird
