Evening sessions may take on new look
We are planning a new format for our Society evening sessions, where we have an invited named piper play and after or in between, youngsters or adults can give us a couple of tunes. Once we make contact and have affirmations then we will advertise on this website, Facebook and hopefully piping publications.
Gallery of photographs, etc.

Annually we offer up to two junior players from the Inverness area financial assistance towards attendance at a recognised Piping Course, such as a week’s intensive piping tuition at Sabhal Mor Ostaig or a Feis. We advise any young player who may wish financial assistance, to come along to our weekly meetings on a fairly regular basis.
