“The park bar has live music from 8 pm every night. At weekends it's usually bouncing with people from the highlands and you're guaranteed a wee dance! If you're feeling ambitious, there are 3 bars in close vicinity to each other: the Islay, the Snaffle and the Park bar. They are known locally as "The Tuechter Triangle". Tuechter meaning someone from the highlands - pronounced "chooch-ter". All are great bars and you're guaranteed great craic!”
