Perhaps one of the most recognized elements of any Highland Games is its presentation of the Scottish Pipes and Drums. With a history as rich as the Scottish land itself, the parade and marching beat of pipes and drums conjure up images and emotions that can also be very personal. There is nothing more emotive than the lone piper playing Amazing Grace and nothing more exhilarating than an entire band playing a Highland March. You’re not going to want to miss this!
