Buchan Peterson pipe band was placed second in Grade 2 event at the European Championship at Forres at the weekend with the drum corps continuing their winning streak adding to British and UK championship titles secured earlier in Bathgate and Belfast.

The keenly fought contest was won by Johnstone pipe band from Renfrewshire.

Leading Drummer, Brian Martin said: “This was a tremendous result for the band.

“Going forward to the Scottish and World championships we are already being pushed by the top Irish bands and the overseas contingent have yet to join the fray.

“We are playing well just now and I’m sure we’ll give the North Eastevery chance.”

The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association recently announced that the event would be held in Forres for the next three years.
