Thursday 5th July was a very special day for the Pipes and Drums of Ardvreck School in Scotland. Along with 21 other Pipe Bands the Pipes & Drums were part of the Royal Mile Parade. This event was in celebration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee but more especially to honour Prince William, the Earl of Strathearn as he was invested with the Order of the Thistle. The 30 members of the Ardvreck Pipes & Drums marched from St Giles Cathedral to the Scottish Parliament down the Royal Mile which was crowded with cheering crowds. The parade ended with the massed Bands playing Highland Cathedral outside the Scottish Parliament.
Proudly leading the pipers in his Macpherson Hunting kilt was the Pipe Major of the Ardvreck Pipes & Drums, a certain Torquil Le Roy-Lewis. None other than our own Chief's grandson.
Well done Torquil!
