On Saturday 10th June, a National Trust for Scotland ‘Northern Delight’ cruise berthed at Peterhead harbour.  From there over 200 of the passengers were conveyed to the 13th century Fyvie Castle to experience the magnificent building and surrounding countryside.

 

To further enhance the occasion, Grampian Police Scotland Pipe Band was invited to perform throughout the visit to provide a truly traditional musical back-drop.

 

Celine Mutch, who is responsible for functions and events at Fyvie Castle, said, “We at Fyvie are very good friends of the Grampian Police Scotland Pipe Band.  Their performance on Saturday afternoon at the Castle for our cruising guests was simply excellent and greatly appreciated by all”.

The photographs show various aspects of the Band’s time at Fyvie Castle.  As can be seen, one very attentive member of the audience was an Oystercatcher nesting in a flower tub located close to the Castle’s main entrance.
