Why Me?


In 2015 I won the Scottish Vows Awards – the only piper and Master of Ceremonies to have done so, was a finalist in the 2016 and 2017 awards. Nominated and voted for by my clients – so you can be sure of an excellent level of service from me – unfortunately they dropped my category in recent years.

I am currently taking an extended break from bagpiping at weddings due to a medical condition effecting my left hand.

I am the preferred choice of Toastmaster and Master of Ceremonies for several venues around the west coast including Ingliston Country Club, The Albany and Cruden Hall.

My main duties are
