Based in Pitlochry in Perthshire, The Vale of Atholl Pipe Band is a competitive grade one pipe band. The band has placed highly in the Major Scottish competitions and the World Pipe Band Championships since the late 1980s.
Adrian Cramb took over the role of pipe major in 2008. Alastair McNab took over the role of lead drummer in 2013.
Here is an example of their work, entitled “Piping Live“.
The Edradour Distillery
Found near Pitlochry in Perthshire, Scotland is the smallest distillery in the world. The Edradour distillery is found in a collection of old whitewashed farm buildings set in an idyllic Perthshire glen.
Using the smallest stills allowed by law, the three distillers of Edradour produce only 12 casks of whisky per week. All by hand! Its a cracking malt – ‘smooth and creamy with a nutty, honeyed finish’.
The distillery offers a very interesting tour from 10am-4pm throughout the summer season. Well worth a visit. Check out their website Edradour Distillery found here.
From the car park at Edradour Pitlochry and easily accessible on foot. Great views across the fields to Ben Vrackie from the walk in. Not to be missed on a visit to Edradour.
