We are looking for sponsorship to help with offsetting the costs of running the annual Junior Piping Competition held in June. If you are interested in supporting piping in the Highlands, please contact our Secretary Alastair Campbell. firstname.lastname@example.org
Meetings are held throughout most of the year apart from over Christmas and New year. Currently we meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday in each month at 8:00 PM in The Club on Gordon Terrace in Inverness.
We organise a programme of recitals through the winter months. To these we invite the foremost players of the day and they are usually accompanied by a local junior piper. Read more >>>

We also organise and steward the Solo Piping Competition at the Inverness Highland Games on behalf of Highland Council. We pride ourselves in holding a well run competition with the aim of making the competing process as easy as it can be for pipers. Read more >>>
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.

The Society meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month in The Club, 5 Gordon Terrace (parking from Mitchell's Lane) Inverness. Come around 7:50 for 8.00pm. We usually play for about an hour to an hour and a half, everybody is welcome regardless of experience. Come and play or just come to listen.
Evening sessions take on new look
The Inverness Piping Society holds regular meetings on the first and third Wednesday each month.
To enhance the social aspect, we have recently launched monthly 'featured piper' evenings. Local pipers will be invited to play a slightly extended session in an informal setting. The evenings are intended to be social gatherings. It would be good to see a healthy gathering of local piping enthusiasts. Piping starts at 8:00pm
Our first “Featured Pipers” night was given by James MacPhee and his son Angus playing for a small but very appreciative audience on the 4th of November.
Come along for an evening of good piping, and free sandwiches, drinks available for purchase downstairs at the bar. All players of any age and ability are welcome. This is not a formal recital and as always, other pipers are encouraged to bring their pipes and have a tune.
The Society elected the following office bearers for 2014:
President: Euan MacCrimmon
Vice President: Brian Yates
Secretary: Alastair Campbell
Treasurer: Donald Smith
