The Games start with the arrival on the field of the Stewards’ March.

At around 9.00am in the morning, the world’s finest competing pipers start to assemble in Oban’s town centre.

By 10.00am, they have formed a band.

Until this moment, they have never played together, and after today, they will never play together again.

As the drum rolls sound, you too, are welcome to become part of this main attraction.

Simply take your place amongst Chiefs, Chieftains, Stewards, clansmen, townsfolk and visitors for the Stewards’ March, and led by the Pipe Major, (the current holder of the Highland Society of London’s gold medal), you will be piped triumphantly all the way to the Games Field at Mossfield Stadium.
