Great to see pictures of this pipe band who I used to love hear playing in Invergordon High Street after the Invergordon Highland Games. I can still hear them to this day my parents used to take us to visit our relations Hugh and Annie Moir who had the undertakers in Invergordon and stayed in the High Street after the Games.

I remember Hugh and Annie well. We used to have a contingent down from Strathconon every Games day.
At the moment a beautiful mural of the Distillery Pipe Band is being painted on our gable (Noreen's & Kelly's). If you live locally, you should pay a visit in about a fortnight's time when it should be near completion. Failing that click on Distillery Pipe Band on this site and you can see the progress of the mural.
