Strachur & District Piping Association

Follow us on Follow us on FacebookFacebook

The Association was started in 1968 to promote piping in the district, particularly among the youth of the area. Regular concerts and ceilidhs are held in the Memorial Hall and there is free tuition given to young pipers on Friday nights throughout the year. From almost its inception the Association has held a Piping Competition and 5 day Summer School at the start of the school summer holidays. These were inaugurated by Mr Niall Campbell BEM of Succoth who also started, and was Pipe Major of, the Dunoon Grammar School Pipe band. So the links with the Grammar School are very strong and the summer events are jointly sponsored and held across the Memorial Hall and Strachurmore Pavilion.
