Luss Highland Games Results – Open, CLASP (MSR added), Juniors

The picturesque Loch Lomondside village was the setting for a full day of amateur and professional piping. The weather was perfect and a good crowd was in attendance.

Thirteen amateur pipers, all participant in the Piping Centre’s CLASP league, played their piobaireachd in the morning and their light music in the afternoon. For the professionals it was the reverse.

The picture above shows Champion Piper Donald MacPhee with the piobaireachd trophy which he won for his performance of Beloved Scotland.
