"Piping Scot was amazing! He played brilliantly and was very attentive to detail, He looked fabulous in full dress , He was kind and listened to everything we had to say. PipingScot David also sat with my Father after the funeral and that was worth every penny. Piping Scot was early on arrival and stayed over the 45 mins we booked him for . You will not regret booking this amazing Piper for any event !! Not sure about how you do the ranking from 1-5 , so I am leaving it on 5 because I am hoping that is the highest I can give him ."

"Dear David, Thank you for making Dad’s 90th birthday so special, not only for Dad, but for his family but also the patients and staff at Red Court. It was exciting to see the awakening response in Dad and how the pipes and your singing made him come alive once more. Something we have not seen for a long time. Many, many thanks. Deborah Todhunter. (90th birthday surprise, Red court Nursing Home, Pudsey, West Yorks.)"

"Dear David & Neil, I cannot thank you enough for the extremely precise and professional way that both yourself and Neil prepared for our day and of course exacted such a polished performance. I recall all of the anxieties and the decision making processes in choosing you both and the initial frustrations in not being able to find a Piper of any kind! Fate it would seem played a huge hand with Neil’s wife having her Mother’s Maiden name of Brodie and indeed your own lineage of Dormer. I was quite simply compelled to have you both and could not have possibly wished for any finer support and polish to our big day. Gentlemen, I owe you both a tremendous debt of thanks. The Gaelic recital that you made during your toast at our dining table was absolutely superb David and was quite unexpected. It clearly made a huge impact to the feel of the moment and was extremely well received - didn’t understand a word until the very end though!! Please accept our most sincere and grateful thanks David, from Mr and Mrs Terry Dormer. (Dormer wedding, Brodie Castle, Nairn, Moray)"

"David, I'm sorry I missed the chance to personally thank you on the evening. I've received great feedback regarding the evening and I believe a large part is due to your piping and your performance regarding the address to the haggis. I won't be Entertainments Chairman for next year's Burns Night, but I will ensure your details are provided to my successor so they can keep you in mind. Regards, Mike Gibson Sgt M J Gibson| GRMS | C4 Flt | RAF Leeming | North Yorkshire | DL7 9NJ |"

"Dear David, Just a short note to pass on our heartfelt thanks for your piping on Friday 16th March. It turned out just as we had planned and hoped it would. The music would have been loved by Dad. Once again thank you for contribution to a great send off for him."
