I am the convenor and event organizer for the Kinlochard junior bagpipe solo’s, an annual piping competition in the Trossachs to promote the culture of Great Highland bagpiping for youngsters up to the age of 18yrs. The Trust has been fantastic for attracting competitors from all over Scotland and top judges to the event. The support of the Trust allows us to provide prize money and prizes for entrants. It is a traditional piping competition with a modern twist as one of the rounds includes Gordon Duncan tunes.

The Trust also kindly provides merchandise for all of the competitors. The standard of playing and turnout is very high across all the entrants. Last years winner was piper Bobby Allen from North Lanarkshire.

Thank you to the Trust for their continued support!!
