Walking around Edinburgh with Chris Clark we heard the pipes and rushed up to the High Street to find the Pipes and Drums of Lothian & Borders Police leading a march followed by The Royal Company of Archers. Here you can see the Pipe Band as they pass by St. Giles Cathedral.
The band is one of the world’s oldest pipe bands and was known for many years as the Edinburgh City Police Pipe Band. The band currently competes in grade 1 at Major Championships run by the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Society as well as local highland games and Lothian and Borders branch contests.
The band has travelled extensively and has in the past taken part in many high profile events and shows such as the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, both at Edinburgh Castle and more recently in Sydney Australia, as well as the Halifax International Tattoo, Nova Scotia, Estes Park Tattoo, Colorado and the Danish Military Tattoo in Herning, Denmark.
