We can only highly recommend the services of Arkleston Piping who played the bagpipes at our wedding, just North of Glasgow. George did a tremendous job in welcoming our guests, who had travelled from all over the world to celebrate our special day. The arrival of the wedding car was even welcomed to the sound of bagpipes, adding a special and unforgettable touch to our day. Mr & Mrs Mackintosh

Uniforms tend to be of two varieties. What we call No. 1 Uniform and No. 2 Uniform.

The descriptions below are illustrative of these two main types of uniform but Arkleston Piping only provide pipers in the No. 2 Uniform.

Uniform No. 1

This is the much more formal uniform and what we often refer to as ‘full dress uniform’.

 

 

The uniform consists of:

Feather bonnet
Tunic
Plaid, crossbelt & brooch
Kilt
Sporran
Hose
Brogues

Uniform No. 2

These are the most readily available throughout Scotland and the UK. This uniform is formal yet gives the piper more movement than the full uniform. It’s also the uniform more pipe bands are adopting these days.

The uniform consists of:

Glengarry bonnet
Shirt, waistcoat, jacket & tie
Kilt
Sporran
Hose
Brogues
