Oban High School Pipe Band were crowned European champions in their grade on Saturday.

The Oban pupils won the Grade 3 category at the championships, which took place on Bught Park in Inverness for the first time.

A spokesperson for Oban High School Pipe Band said: ‘We are delighted. This is a new grade for them and they are up against a lot of adult bands, so it was a big achievement.’

The pupils received lots of congratulatory messages on social media, including one from Skerryvore, who said: ‘Woohoo! Congratulations from California.’

For the last two years, the pipe band have played alongside Skerryvore at Oban Live.
