We take another look back over the decade about to end, this time featuring the 2009 Scottish Pipe Band Championships at Dumbarton.

In 2009, the Scottish was held on May 16 and was the first major championship of the season. Field Marshal Montgomery won Grade 1, Inveraray won Grade 2, Grade 3a went to Aughintober and Grade 3b to Castlerock, Grade 4a was won by Letterkenny and Grade 4b by Thiepval Memorial. George Watson’s College won both the Juvenile and the Novice Grades.
