the day so far, in my opinion, but the chanter was rather quiet. His hiharin was messy and the D slightly sharp – not wise in this tune.He could have moved the tune on a bit inVar 1 and there was one error there. He got lost in the dithis and began a bit of self-composition towards the end of the tune.Tom Peterkin, aiming for his hat trick of victories in this contest, played Salute to Donald on a lovely bagpipe. Phrases could have been more clearly laid out, and the half-phrase heea was unexpected slow, interrupting the flow a little. His pauses before cadences in the C singling were not consistent, but otherwise very enjoyable.


Colin MacNeill finished the day with


the King’s Taxes.The high G was unsteady which was a pity as the tune otherwise went well.Var 1 was enjoyable and doubling nice too – though on the careful side. Drones drifted in theT variation, and C movement was slowish but consistent. My own prize- list was, with the winner first, John Frater, Tom Peterkin, Eric McKimmon, Alan Forbes andWillie Fallon. Nothing personal, Con! Actual result: 1 J Frater 2T Peterkin 3 E McKimmon 4 C Houlihan 5 A Forbes; judges were Captain Stuart Samson and Dr WilliamWotherspoon.
