The Highlands’ biggest piping event of the year

Inveraray & District Pipe Band were crowned European Champions 2017

Piping At Forres, the European Pipe Band Championships, will return to the stunning setting of Grant Park, Forres on 30 June 2018.

A huge thank you to the thousands of pipers, drummers, drum majors and Highland dancers from far and wide who visited this year’s event, to the traders who provided a stunning showcase of Scottish food and drink, craft and retail items and our sponsors.

Our volunteers for whom this event would not be possible deserve special mention.

Finally congratulations to the Inveraray & District Pipe Band who took home the title of European Pipe Band Champions 2017.


“What a fantastic day, a great atmosphere and amazing to see so many pipe bands. Well laid out and organised. Hope I can make it back again next year.”
