As ‘storm Ali’ began to take hold of the country a large turn out was not anticipated but 14 or so pipers took to the floor to entertain a healthy audience.
The P/M got things underway just after 8 and the band played right up until the pies at 9. The post pie piping focused on the MSR and the hard work is paying off. As the winter draws ever closer the band will increase its repertoire and have fresh tunes ready for next year.
There is plenty going on in the piping calendar with the rearranged Uist and Barra competition on Saturday 29th of this month, Dr Peter McCalister playing at the Eagles on Tuesday 2ndOctober, the Captain John MacLellan competition at the Army School of Pipes and Drums on Saturday 6th October, Sandy Cameron giving a recital at the Eagles on 16th October and the dates for the Scots Guards KO competition have been released. Then of course we have the Glenfiddich at the end of October and London in November.
On the subject of the Glenfiddich the Eagles are running a minibus to the event for members. Details can be obtained from our secretary Craig Robertson at
See you at the next meeting
