Aboyne Highland Games Results (updated)

Very sunny with only the odd shower to spoil the day for the large crowd. They were thrilled when a surprise visit was paid to the gathering by Her Majesty The Queen, this to mark their 150th anniversary. Seventeen pipers played in the open categories. Pictured above is Champion Piper Allan Russell.

Piping Convenor Dr Jack Taylor adds: ‘Sunny day with a cooling breeze enough to set the flags fluttering.  And the hearts of the committee were fluttering in anticipation of the visit of HM The Queen. The ground of Queen Elizabeth’s Salute was played to an expectant packed arena just before her car entered the Millenium Gates to be greeted by the massed bands led by D/M Bill Barclay playing Scotland the Brave. The Queen dedicated the new cabar before meeting committee members and dignitaries. She then settled down to watch as the competitions restarted. In the piping it was a supreme day for Allan Russell, a faithful attender over many years.’
