Over the years the Huntly Pipe Band has played in many locations, not only in the United Kingdom but also overseas. During this time we have collected a fantastic selection of images which we have placed in a gallery for the enjoyment of our web site visitors.
The 4th Duke of Gordon raised the Gordon Highlanders in 1794 and Huntly is considered by many to be the home of the regiment. The Gordon Highlanders went on to become one of the most renowned fighting outfits in the British army with successful campaigns in many far flung corners of the world. The Huntly and District Pipe Band has close affinities with the regiment and was formed in 1948 by Gordon Highlanders returning home from the Second World War.
Huntly and District pipe band play at a variety of events. Highland games take up a big part of the summer months including massed band events at Dufftown and Nairn Highland Games and Braemar Gatherings.
The band has travelled to Europe many times, during which we have made long-lasting friendships some of which span three generations. This year we are returning to Amiens, France in July.

The current Huntly Pipe Band has two uniforms; a number one ceremonial dress used for special occasions and certain Highland Games that require the full ceremonial dress to be worn by our members.
