Kind words from those I have entertained.
“We just want to say a huge thank you for piping at our wedding at Linlithgow Palace last year, everyone enjoyed hearing you play and loved that you also spent time with us all to chat and take pictures. Thank you as well for taking the time to learn a modern song for us, everyone recognised Coldplay's Clocks as you piped us in to the head table. I would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a piper for any occasion. Thanks again Neil, lots of love, Elizabeth, Colin and Liam xxx”

"Thank you so much for making our day magical. We showed our English guests how amazing Scotland is and you looked and sounded absolutely brilliant. Thank you."
" I would like to thank you for contributing hugely to the success of my
birthday dinner at Auchinleck House. Your piping was the icing on the cake.
Your willingness to switch between traditional and modern was much
appreciated. As you know, most of the people at the dinner were English but,
without exception, they thought the piping was marvellous. It was the
highlight of the evening for them. One of our English guests e-mailed me a
couple of days after the event saying
" I know how much effort goes into planning these events and the
bagpipes etc you arranged were not just great touches
they were excellent surprises, thank you once again"
If ever I am asked to recommend a piper your name would be at the top of the
list. Thanks again for helping to make the evening very special."
