Balvaird Castle in Perthshire is a particularly fine and complete example of a traditional late medieval Scottish tower house. It is located in the Ochil Hills, around 5 kilometres south of Abernethy. The name Balvaird is from Baile a' Bhàird, 'Township of the Bard' in Gaelic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . Balvaird was a Barclay property, but passed by marriage to the Murrays of Tullibardine in 1500, who built the castle. The arms of Sir Andrew Murray and Dame Margaret Barclay (heiress to Arngask and Kippo, which included Balvaird) are over the main entrance and they may have built the present tower as they were married in 1495. Andrew Murray of Balvaird is mentioned in 1560 and later, and Sir Andrew Murray of Balvaird was made Lord Balvaird in 1644. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .

AND THATS A WRAP! 🎉 One of the main purposes of this snap was to get Mount Bromo in the backdrop so you’ll just have to imagine there’s a volcano on the right! 😂 The MORE important purpose is to introduce (and say farewell!) to our awesome @Breacans Indonesia group who we’ve been with for the past 2 weeks. Thank you for trusting us, laughing with us and following us down some fairly steep ravines! Salamat Mahalo and we’ll see you legends soon! 🤙🏼🇮🇩 #MountBromo #BreacansTrips #SalamatMahalo

A tune (that I still don’t know the name of!) from the rice paddies of East Java! 🇮🇩 Our @Breacans Indonesia trip has been far from bagpipe focussed, but I managed to wangle them in there a few times! Hosting our recent group here in Indonesia has been a blast and we’re now looking back chuckling at the photos & videos we’ll be sharing over the next few weeks! 🌋 #KiltedAdventures #BreacansTrips #Candipuro

This made my month! Some random guy practicing bagpipes in the middle of Downtown Petaluma. He was on f—king FIRE!! I just sat there and soak it all in for about 25 minutes until he stopped. I couldn’t leave. #petaluma #sonomacounty #bagpipes #awesome #peoplearerad #rad

Restoration on this little beauty is going well. Made by George Glen in Edinburgh around 1910-1915. Got the bag tied in today. Been auditioning some baritone drones for it hence weird Kiernan drone looking out of place there. Matched the body with an Egan (or Moloney brothers) chanter, which seems to look the part. I’ll probably have to find or make a new baritone drone for it eventually but I’ll get the rest of it running first. #restoration #bagpipes #uilleannpipes #unionpipes #irishpipes #georgeglen #michaelegan #musicinstruments #projects #irishmusic #folk #edinburgh

A Great day today Bagpiping for the Wedding & Reception of the lovely Alicia & Adam. The service took place at St. Paul's Church Cwm, Ebbw Vale. My performances were to play for arriving guests & 3 requested Welsh tunes during the Register Signing. The Bride & Groom were serenaded with a Fanfare by members of The Royal Welsh prior to my post ceremony tunes during photos. The Wedding Party then made their way to @Glenyrafon Hotel Usk for the reception, where again I played as they arrived, during the drinks & photos. I then led the happy couple into their Wedding Breakfast to "Calon Lan". Congratulations and thank you for letting us be part of your very Special Day :-) John & Louise :-) #SouthWales #Bagpipes #Weddingmusic #WeddingBagpiper #EbbwVale #Cwm #Blackwood #Caerphilly #ValeofGlamorgan #Bridgend #Maesteg #Pontypridd #RhonddaCynonTaf #Cardiff #Torfaen #Swansea #Powys #Pontyclun #MerthyrTydfil #PortTalbot #NewportWales #Herefordshire #Usk #Abergavenny #Pembrokeshire #Carms #Llantrisant #Gloucestershire #Monmouthshire #Chepstow

More wonderful scenes on Arran today, our final day here. The granite island Ailsa Craig is where most curling stones come from. We've seen seventeen seals, some incredible vegetation and a pipe band at Brodick Castle.
