Butter Fingers’ blog, 4th September

Just returned from a few days in Inverness visiting relatives and taking in the Northern Meeting. Tell you what, it’s clearly been a long season for many judging by the indifferent quality of the MSR playing in the Clasp and in the Former Winners’ MSR. I was slightly taken aback by a fair number of [...]

In Grade 1 I thought Field Marshall's pipe corps was truly excellent – much better than at the Europeans at Forres. I thoroughly enjoyed the Grade 2 [...]

Seymour takes the salute. I don’t know about you but I fair enjoyed last weekend’s pipe band championships at Grant Park, Forres. That’s what I call a pipe band championship venue! I’m glad to hear that we’ll be back in the Moray town next year on the 30th of June for what will [...]

Dugald with Glasgow's outgoing Lord Provost, Sadie Docherty. We are rightly applauding a senior citizen on his retirement. What a great example he has set over 70+ years of service. He has more than done his bit. He has done us proud. Prince Phillip? No, I am referring to Dugald MacNeill. It was [...]
