The Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships took place on Sunday 13th March 2016.

Another highly enjoyable Championships with young people delivering outstanding performances in all categories, from quartets to experienced bands in the Novice Juvenile categories.  It was a day of keen competition, camaraderie and tremendous talent.
