Piping Competitions

The Inverness Piping Society are once again hosting the Solo Piping Competitions at our Games with special thanks going to Don Smith. This year's competitins will be staged outside the main Highland Games arena and competitors can enter on the day.

Piping competitions commenced at our Games in the 1840’s and always provide one of the highlights of any visit to our Games.

The competitions will include separate March, Strathspey & Reel and Piobaireachd for both Juniors and Seniors. Also, newly introduced this year will be a Hornpipe & Jig event for Senior competitors.

Trophies being competed for will include for Juniors “The Donnie Manson Memorial Trophy” and for Seniors “The Waterside Hotel Trophy”, “ Bratach a’ Phiobaire (The Piper’s Banner)”, “The President’s Cup” and “The Inverness Piping Society Shield”. Trophies have been kindly donated by Nicol Manson in memory of the late father, Donnie Manson (a great supporter of piping in the Highlands), Inverness Piping Society and Mrs Rona Lightfoot (Inverness).
