Ghillie Dhu is located at the west end of Princes Street, and is
a large venue used through the year for shows, events, weddings,
Ceilidhs and parties.
It is our largest venue now, and the floor space is suitable for
Dance shows and Ceilidhs as well as using it as a traditional
theatre or cabaret space.
The room is very versatile and we welcome enquires for free and
paid shows, and also from other promoters that can use this
large and untie space. We're looking for event programming as
well as runs of shows that can fill a large hall.
The ceiling is high, and is decorated to a high standard with
lighting, chandeliers and fabrics. It is an fantastically good
looking space, housed above a traditional Scottish bar, that
also has outdoor seating.
