This small, community-led games offers generous prize money and it is good to see pipers supporting the event. The weather was overcast but mild with a few scattered showers later in the day.

Braemar Junior Games

It was a pleasure to judge at Braemar Junior Games today [July 23], writes Dr Jack Taylor. It is delightfully informal. Roll up, register, play. Help the band out if it is short of numbers. Have a go in the athletics or the heavies too.

Particular mention must go to Nicolas Sorrosal from Argentina. He plays with his band at the Scots school there. On borrowed pipes he gave an good account of himself – in between doing the long jump and tossing the caber – that’s the kind of Games this is.
