Argyllshire Gathering Day 2 – Complete Results

Games day today at Mossfield Park, Oban. Alasdair Henderson was the outstanding piper of the day taking first in both ‘A’ Grade light music events matching the achievement last year of Craig Sutherland. Ally capped a wonderful gathering for Argyll by taking second in the Jig. He is pictured above receiving his medals from AG Piping Assistant Steward Torquil Telfer (left) and Piping Steward Jamie Mellor. 

Alasdair now qualifies for next year’s Former Winners’ MSR competition.

The Jig was won by the master of the genre Fred Morrison. The ‘B’ Grade March and S&R went to Argyll in the shape of Angus MacColl Jnr and the talented Sarah Muir from Campbeltown.
