I had the utter pleasure of filming the wonderful Spud for a BBC documentary that followed people's lives in the Highlands in 2013/2014. I filmed Spud performing on his bagpipes across the Cairngorms over a period of seven months. I documented him playing at a wide variety of events from weddings, new years eve, piping in the haggis on Burns night and the Opening of Spay River.
Spud plays beautifully, looks incredibly impressive in his Highland dress and is an absolute pleasure to be around. ...

If you do not book Spud, you will truly miss out on a one in a million excellent piper and human.
We came to Scotland from Australia to be married on the banks of Loch Ness. Spud was the first contact I made. Spud then put me in touch with a humanist, photographer, hairdresser, makeup artist. As we were in Australia we couldn't pick the exact location for our cermony. Spud went out of his way to take a drive and find an incredible spot, with sensational views for us. Thank you Spud.

This lovely gentleman is highly recommended!
He was really lovely on the day, the piping was excellent, and he was kind enough to have some photos taken with us at another venue afterwards.
10/10 Spud! 💖

The group was then able to try playing the pipes themselves with instructions from Spud. For many this was a first and perhaps once in a lifetime opportunity. I cannot thank Spud enough for this experience which was greatly appreciated by everyone. Not only is Spud...
