Highlands and Islands Festival: All Senior Piping Results (Final Update)

hifest-logoFor this year’s senior piping there were five prizes in each class. There was also an extensive programme of junior piping. All events  held at Oban High School.

Double Silver Medallist Gordon Bruce was the P&A Grade champion, with good showings from Allan Russell, Darach Urquhart (pictured with Gordon) and Gordon McCready in the As and Euan Dewar, Andy Wilson and Ross Cowan in the Bs. There was a mix up over the winner of the P&A MSR with Darach Urquhart being announced in first place when in fact the winner was Allan Russell. The organisers later apologised for the confusion.
