Edinburgh – April 13, 2013 - The annual Edinburgh Local Mod Solo Piping Competition for juniors for the first time had a tie for the Best Overall Piper younger than 18, with the Greentrax Cup split between Donald C. Stewart and Seamus O’Baoighill. Stewart gained a first in the Piobaireachd and second in the MSR, and vice versa for O’Baoighill. Organizers decided that, rather than award the trophy on piobaireachd preference, it would be shared between them.

The pipes|drums Magazine trophy for best Under-15 Piper went to Harry MacLachlan. pipes|drums also once again provided one-year subscriptions to all first-prize winners.

All of the events were judged by Dugald MacNeill and Tom Speirs.
