CALENDAR & BOOKINGS

HISTORY

UNIFORM

MEMBERS

Huntly owes its name and existence to the Gordon family. In 1319 Robert the Bruce granted the lands of Strathbogie to Adam de Gordon originally of Berwickshire. The family base at Strathbogie castle was renamed Huntly castle in 1506.



The current Huntly Pipe Band has two uniforms; a number one ceremonial dress used for special occasions such as Armistice Parades and certain Highland games such as the Lonach in Strathdon that require the full ceremonial dress to be worn by our members.

The current Pipe band comprises of many members and a dedicated team of committee members and office bearers. Without doubt the continued success of the pipe band is reliant on the continuing hard work and support of our team.
