A first time visit to Pitlochry Highland Games saw the Isle of Skye Pipe Band achieve success.

For not only did the island’s own achieve 2nd place in The Grade 4 RSPBA competition but their overall standard of piping won top place out of the 11 bands competing.

This was the band’s second competition in 2016 under the musical direction of Pipe Major Alan MacKenzie.

Earlier in the day Drum Major Peter MacDonald led the Skye band through Pitlichry's Main Street in front of a huge audience of thousands and into the games arena. Seventeen pipe bands took part in the street parade.
