Portree, Isle of Skye, Scotland – August 5, 2014 – Callum Beaumont achieved one of the rarest feats in solo piping, winning both the Dunvegan Medal and the Clasp to the medal on the same day at the Skye Gathering. The Dunvegan Medal calls for entrants to submit tunes accredited to or closely associated with the MacCrimmon piping dynasty of Skye. For good measure, Beaumont also won the 6/8 March. On Wednesday he will defend the Silver Chanter at Dunvegan Castle, which he won in 2013 on his first attempt.
