West Linton & District Pipe Band exists to promote the art of Bag Pipe Playing and drumming to the communities of West Linton, surrounding communities and the Scottish borders as a whole.
It aims to bring young and old(er) together to perform to the community and to compete with other Pipe Bands throughout the world. The band is a member of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association (RSPBA) and the Lothian & Borders Branch of the RSPBA.
Under the leadership of Pipe Major Douglas MacKenzie we are always looking to recruit new members into the band. We employ a piping tutor to provide instruction to all members. If you are interested in learning to play either Bag Pipes or drums please get in touch through this site.
The band would especially like to hear from experienced pipers and drummers who would be interested in joining. We are also aware of previous members residing in the area who may wish to come back – Go on get in touch.
