THE ROYAL SCOTS ASSOCIATION PIPE BAND
The band was formed in 2000 with the aim of ‘flying the flag’ for the Royal Scots at public, charity and civic events. At that time, it was comprised of serving and former members of the regiment who played the pipes and drums.
Non-military members were later invited to join, and today the band comprises a mixture of civilians, former Royal Scots and other serving and ex-army members. The band’s role has also developed further to providing pipers and drummers for weddings, birthdays, funerals, social and corporate events.
