Taught by his grandfather, the late Pipe Major Ronald McCallum MBE and later by the late piping legend Arthur Gillies and instructors Hugh MacCallum and Jim Henderson, Stuart went on to win three Clasps at Inverness and the Senior Piobaireachd at Oban five times, securing Gold Medals each time.

The Braemar Highland Games Centre is a fitting venue for Stuart to perform amidst the history and heritage of piping greats both past and present. 

David Geddes, President of the Braemar Royal Highland Society (BRHS) said, “We are delighted to welcome Stuart to the Centre to share and enjoy with others, his award-winning highly acclaimed piping skills.  This event contributes to the Braemar Royal Highland Charity (BRHC) objectives to promote the culture, history and tradition that is associated with Highland Gatherings.  The audience is in for a real treat.”

Stuart Liddell commented, “I am very much looking forward to playing a recital at the Braemar Highland Games Centre.  It will be great to play in front of an audience again.”
