Birnam, Scotland – August 29, 2015 – Dunkeld Park near Perth was again the venue for the annual Birnam Highland Games, which attracted a decent entry of about 20, with many non-Scots in the senior solo piping hoping to boost their grading with the Competing Pipers Association and thus gain entry to the major gatherings. Chris Armstrong of Airth, Scotland, had the overall best day, even though Ben McClamrock of Baltimore won both the Piobaireachd and Strathspey & Reel events. First prize in each contest was £40.
