Arisaig, Scotland – July 30, 2014 – Decker Forrest was the overall winner, but the prizes were generally spread around, with 11 pipers competing in the senior events in cool and rainy weather in the morning and early afternoon, giving way to warm and sunny conditions later on. The midges were in full force.
