A bar in a converted church with impressive grand interior and own draft ales. Bar staff in rugby shirts and kilts, and a baronial, banquet hall style set-up in the body of the old church.

In Scottish folklore a Ghillie Dhu is a spirit that guards trees. It seems an appropriate choice of name - even on a scorching, sunny day it is dark and mysterious inside.

Three-couse dinners and ceilidhs every Friday and Saturday with DJ til 3am.
