Pipe Band Competition at the Highland Festival

The St Andrew’s College Pipe Band hosted a successful piping weekend which started with a solo Piobaireachd competition on Friday with some of the best pipers in the country competing. This gave some of the band members their first opportunity to compete in a Piobaireachd competition, and valuable experience was gained.

OA Thomas Fuller (Upper, 1997) was placed first in the Piobaireachd event. Friday evening was the Ceilidh where the College band collaborated with the Durban Caledonian Pipe Band to put on a wonderful evening of Scottish music.

Saturday started off with the street march competition and a massed band march onto Lower Field. This was followed by a morning of hotly contested solo competitions and ended with the band competition in the afternoon.

Overall a successful and fun day was had by the bands, with the two College bands placing 2nd and 4th overall.
