OBAN high school pipers per­formed su­perbly at the World Cham­pi­onships on Glas­gow Green last Satur­day to come within a hair’s breadth of win­ning a ma­jor prize.

The in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion, re­garded as the world cup for pipers, at­tracts thou­sands of play­ers from all over the world to com­pete for the ti­tle of World Pipe Band Cham­pion.

In the high school’s class of Novice Ju­ve­nile, there were 34 bands com­pet­ing for first place.

The Oban band came first in the grade for their ensem­ble piece and first for the pip­ing in tune cat­e­gory.

But the high school band was piped at the post for the over­all prize by Ge­orge Wat­son’s Col­lege from Ed­in­burgh.
