The Social Life of Strathpeffer

Strathpeffer and District Pipe Band

The Pipe Band was formed in 1980 primarily to entertain visitors in the village square at Strathpeffer. The Pipe Band perform every Saturday night in the square from May to September; while the band have a break during the performance tourists are entertained with a display of Highland Dancing. The band wears the tartan Mackenzie of Seaforth, while the logo on their ties is of Castle Leod; permission for this was given by the late Earl of Cromartie.

At the time this photograph was taken the band played under the leadership of Drum Major Duncan Sutherland and Pipe Major James Mackenzie. Several band members have been with the band since it was formed. Members of the Pipe Band give their time and energies voluntarily. They practise every week during the winter and continue to perfect their music during the summer. As well as playing every week in the Square, they often perform at local Highland Games and Gala days.
