Pitlochry Games Results

Warm and dry for the final Highland games of the season. There was a two-minute silence for HM The Queen and a lone piper played the lament. Twenty played in the seniors, eight in the juniors. Champion Piper was Craig Sutherland who is pictured above on the boards today.

A composing competition to mark the 170th Anniversary of the Pitlochry Games has been won by Niall Matheson, Inverness. Niall was in attendance to perform the tune.

Dozens of entries were received from all over the world and there is now the possibility that these will be collected into a new book of tunes. More here.
