The 2014 World Pipe Band Championships have already flown by, and this year’s event was as big as or even better than ever. The RSPBA and Glasgow Life do an impeccable job of running the extravaganza, which runs, if not like clockwork, at least as well as the Giant Wheel that looms over Glasgow Green.

We hope that you enjoy revisiting some sights from the 2014 World Pipe Band Championships.

    TIP OF THE DAY
    Pipers: If in doubt, why not try a fellow piper’s pipes and see how they feel? We all hold the bag slightly differently, and it is crucial that you feel comfortable.
