From one extreme to the another! We’ve been Piping Hot but today the pipes were freezing! We still managed a few tunes this afternoon to entertain those who braved the elements to come out and watch the International Women’s Rugby game! Scotland v Spain. Pity in the end it was called off. Great pre-season training for our own competing season!
‘Tis Christmas Eve’ we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their good wishes and support over the last year and wish everybody all the very best of health and happiness over the festive season. We look forward to seeing (and hearing) you all in the New Year! Have a great time from us all in ScottishPower Pipe Band X

We would like to express our sympathy with Andrew’s family and friends after hearing of his passing. He was a well respected and talent musician who we competed against for many years and had great mutual respect. R.I.P Andrew, our thoughts are with you all and the Simon Fraser Pipe Band at this very sad time.
