Se­nior pi­obaireachd suc­cess for Stu­art at North­ern Meet­ing

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

In­ver­aray piper Stu­art Lid­dell fol­lowed up vic­tory at the re­cent Ar­gyll­shire Gath­er­ing with suc­cess at last week’s North­ern Meet­ing.

Stu­art, pipe ma­jor of In­ver­aray and Dis­trict Pipe Band, took first place in the pres­ti­gious se­nior pi­obaireachd com­pe­ti­tion at the Ar­gyll­shire Gath­er­ing in Oban, win­ning The Glen­fid­dich Sin­gle Malt Scotch Whisky Tro­phy and the Kil­berry Cup.

A week later at the North­ern Meet­ing in In­ver­ness, which con­cluded on Fri­day Au­gust 31, he won the horn­pipe and jig.

The North­ern Meet­ing clasp com­pe­ti­tion for pi­obaireachd was won for the third time – at the age of just 29 – by Cal­lum Beau­mont, a for­mer mem­ber of In­ver­aray and Dis­trict Pipe Band. In sec­ond place was An­gus MacColl of Ben­der­loch with Stu­art Lid­dell in fourth po­si­tion. An­gus MacColl was the Over­all Cham­pion Piper at this year’s North­ern Meet­ing.

Young Camp­bel­town piper Ross Con­nor per­formed bril­liantly to win the un­der 18 march, Strath­spey and reel at the North­ern Meet­ing.
