Queen Victoria’s love of the Highlands is well known, less well known is the appointment of Angus MacKay, the first superstar of the piping world, to be her personal piper in 1843. That post has been maintained through to the present day with a total of 11 pipers occupying the position. This account also includes details of Bob brown and the Balmoral Estate pipers and the Royal Guard. Manuscript of the pipe tunes ‘Balmoral Castle‘, ‘The Balmoral Highlanders’ and ‘Prince Charles‘ March’ are included.

MacKay was the first appointment as piper to a sovereign since the days of the ancient Scottish kings. He was an enigmatic character whose genius flamed the piping world. He was also to become the first superstar of piping, his moves covered by the press of the time in detail.

This is a fascinating role with every encumbent having their own tale to tell.

Author Bruce Campbell has spent a lifetime both playing and studying piping. THE ROYAL PIPERS is his fourth book on piping.
A debt of gratitude is acknowledged to the late Captain John A MacLellan, Director of Bagpipe Music at the Army School of Piping, Edinburgh Castle whose own lifetime of study on piping provided the background and the basis for this text.

This book is extensively illustrated.
