In the past, these competitions have been restricted to competitors from the Highland counties of Scotland but the Northern Meeting wishes to hold a junior competition which is of a similar standing to its senior competition by making it open to all.
There will be Piobaireachd and March, Strathspey and Reel competitions for two age groups – under 15 and under 18.
A number of trophies have been presented for the Junior Competitions including The Pipe Major William Ross Trophy, the Macinnes Cup, The Northern Meeting Piobaireachd Quaich, the Evan Macrae Trophy, the Royal British Legion Brooch, the Esther Mackenzie Trophy and the Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation Cup.
Applications should be made before 31 May 2023 on the downloadable form. Payment of entry fee (£15) should be made by Paypal, Debit or Credit Card.
