Tomintoul Games Results

The weather in the wilds of the Cairngorm National Park was ‘rather nasty at times with rain, but it wasn’t cold’. Eight pipers played. The contest was well supported by local distilleries. Champion Piper was P/M Ben Duncan and he is pictured abpve with trophies and spoils.

The games committee arranged a presentation of an inscribed cuach to Mr Norman Matheson MBE, recognising his attendance at the games judging the piping  for more than 40 years. Norman is actually local to the area and is well kent there. (See pictures below.)
