They were two days to remember, and we continue with our special photo feature from the 2013 World Pipe Band Championships, with images from the Sunday, the second and final day of competitions from Glasgow Green, exclusively for subscribers to pipes|drums Magazine. Like the Saturday, the weather began with intermittent rain and strong winds hitting several bands, including, once again, Shotts & Dykehead Caledonia.
