During the 1800’s bagpipe playing was very popular in the Aberfeldy area and pipers were numerous throughout the Tay Valley. When the Volunteers first started, these players were in great demand, for battalion drills at Birnam and full dress parades at home. There were four outstanding pipers in these days – “Erchie Bruach” (Forbes), Sheamus Scrimgeour The “Pipher Direach” and John McGreror of Killiechassie, Grandtully, Drumcharry and Castle Menzies (Piper to Sir Robert Menzies).
