If you live in Glasgow you no doubt heard the bagpipes throughout the summer – this was organised by Piping Live and culminated (possibly the wrong word choice) in their Piping festival which by all accounts was most excellent.
The Scottish Trad Music Awards announced the list of final nominations yesterday and Piping Live! [...]
Looks like the bloody thing has been around for yonks as well.

Alberto Laidlaw (casting maestro extraordinaire) is holding a two day grayling course on the River Teviot.
This year we have booked the Monteviot Beat on the River Teviot just outside Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders; this beat covers 2.5 miles of double bank fishing. This particular water is renowned for [...]
So someone sent me this link through the contact form. To be honest it looked pretty poor – a bright cheesy page for a CD some guys have made about fishing. I was about to click away ( people send me a lot of links that they want me to promote) however I was sitting [...]
