Spud is first class and has performed for a number of our overseas golfing groups while they have been in Scotland. He is great with our clients and adapts to each group perfectly! Without doubt a 5***** performer!

"We've used Spud for a number of events over the years, and will continue to do so. Not only is he a consummate professional who has perfected his craft, he continues to be reliable, adaptable and his cheerful demeanour is enjoyed by attendees and us, alike!

Cannot recommend Spud enough!"

"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! "

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Spud for over 20 years, we book him regularly at the hotel and other guests book him privately for events like weddings and parties. In all cases, I’ve never found him anything other than friendly and utterly professional. He’s never let us down and strives to be the best he can be. Book him for your special day and you won’t just get a piper, but someone who is personally committed to make sure your day is superb!
