This evening, I am posting a video clip taken August 2009 at Portree, capital of Skye, of the Isle of Skye Pipe Band performing under Drum Major Peter MacDonald. The performance was for a charity raising event (life boats).

Piping has a long tradition on Skye, most prominent of which were the MacCrimmons, hereditary pipers to the MacLeods, Clan Chiefs of Dunvegan.

The current band was re-formed in 1960 and continues to prosper with members of a wide age group.
