Piperdam - walking distance to pub ?

Hi,

We are possibly looking at staying in Piperdam over New Year period. As it will just be my husband and myself, we were looking identify if there are any nice local pubs within walking distance?

Don't want to be stuck in the complex.

Thanks in advance

Hi

Nothing within walking distance I'm afraid as the complex sits on its own. The main road does not have any pavement so would be unsafe to walk on. You may be able to take a taxi to nearby Birkhill Inn which is a nice local pub its around 7 mins by car.

Agree its not a good road to walk, however whole point of going to a pub is to have a drink! 1 pint and your over dd limit! Taxi yes, but the taxi firms are in Dundee, piperdam is in Angus, and you will be charged for crossing the boundray. At new year its double.

Agree with other comments. Piper dam has nice bar & restaurant itself and yes nearest off resort pub is Birky Inn (famous for steak pies). It’s not walking distance but there’s a bus twice an hour to Dundee, you’d need to walk to end of road to get it. Of course you can also go the other direction to likes of Coupar Angus, Meigle, Alyth etc all are small towns with plenty pubs. There’s a country pub called The Belmont Arms - worth a visit but about 7 miles from Piper

Of course if you want city night life Dundee is only 7 miles away

Hope this helps

As this question is specifically to do with over the New Year period, taxi fares will be sky high and public transport non existent.

Agree with others - no pub within walking distance. Bar there is nice enough. Nearest is the Birkhill Inn
