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 couldn’t be everywhere, of course, but we bring you some of our better photos from the two days. We’ll run our photo feature over two parts.

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

Vale of Atholl tuning up on the Friday.

TIP OF THE DAY
Practice does not make ‘perfect’ it makes ‘permanent.’ Take the time to learn your music correctly, so that through repetition (i.e. practice), you don’t allow problems to become permanent fixtures in your music.
