Seil Crofter DJ MacDougall Pipes

Here at the Something for the weekend studios we do like to have lots of different inserts bringing you audio of things that normally you would only get to read about.  The something for the Weekend Team have decided to take a wee break over the summer – it’s a busy time with people off on holiday and its difficult to get the whole gang together  but Kathie has been down to the Bridge over the Atlantic to catch up with Seil crofter DJ MacDougall who is picking up his pipes to raise £1,000 for charity.

On August 28 he will be marching five miles, while playing the pipes, all the way from the Oban side of the Bridge Over The Atlantic down to the seafront at Ellenabeich.

Funds raised are for Royal British Legion Scotland’s Easdale Branch.

Kathie caught up with him as he prepares for the event.
