Blair Atholl, Scotland – May 25, 2014 – About 30 pipers turned out for the annual Atholl Gathering, where cool and showery weather was not as bad as was forecast. Numbers were down slightly from previous years, but still a healthy turnout for one of the Scottish solo piping circuit’s more popular events. There were two heats for each light music event, with two judges taking each heat. All for light music judges assessed the final round. Gordon McCready was the overall winner on the day.
