Meet the Piper
All our visitors can now have a truly authentic Scottish experience of playing the bagpipes!
Visit the Museum of Piping to try the pipes as you take a tour around the museum, which charts the history of piping through the collection on display. This is part of the National Museums Scotland's collection of piping artefacts. Then with our bagpiper host, you can try the pipes yourself!
