Band featured in Glenisla Games 150th Anniversary Book

In 2019 Dundee City Pipe Band had the honour of leading the parade to the Haugh in Glenisla for the 150th Glenisla Highland Games. Starting at Forter Castle the march was a challenge for lungs and legs, but the band played well and brought a colourful parade of flag bearers into the grounds.

Prince Charles, the Duke of Rothesay, was the guest of honour and he took time to meet the band, shake hands and chat with Pipe Major Iain Bryson.

Now the Games have been celebrated in a commemorative book, giving the history of the games and mentioning some of the athletes who have competed in Glenisla over the years. One such was Donald Dinnie, famous for his feat in carrying the Dinnie Stanes.

Many pictures of the band feature in the book. The band has bought a copy and this will be on display in the band’s HQ in the Scotty Centre, Albert Street. More pics below …
