Oban and Inverness still on … for now


Organisers for the Argyllshire Gathering and the Northern Meeting have today issued a statement advising that, currently, both of the flagship solo piping events are still planned to go ahead for now.

The statement reads:

“The Argyllshire Gathering and the Northern Meetings are acutely alert to the impact which the current Covid 19 crisis is having on scheduled public events and gatherings.

“After due consideration, it is our position that, at this early stage, there is no immediate requirement to cancel our piping competitions, however, as the situation develops, we will review our current position and clearly be guided by the level of Government and scientific advice being provided.

“We are particularly sensitive to the difficulties which this level of uncertainty generates for overseas competitors and judges who have to make extensive travel and accommodation arrangements.

“We will continue to monitor the situation and provide timely notification of developments.”
