About Us

Torphichen and Bathgate Pipe Band are based in West Lothian, Scotland and compete at the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association's Grade 2.

Established in 1902 in the village of Torphichen, the band is one of the oldest civilian pipe bands still in operation today and has had many illustrious years of competitive success whilst serving its local community dutifully. In 2011 the band restarted its Novice Juvenile programme, with the youngsters practising alongside the adult band every Thursday.

The Grade 1 band is currently under the leadership of Pipe Major Stuart Shedden and Leading Drummer Callum Firth.

Band practices take place at Armadale Academy on Monday and Thursday evenings from 7.30pm - 10.00pm. We are always interested to hear from any players with the ability and ambition to compete in Grade 1. Our practices have an open door policy and members of the public and potential new players are always welcome. Alternatively, if interested in playing with the band please feel free to contact any band member or send us a message through this website.
