High school pipers narrowly miss out on top prize at the pipers’ world cup
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.
