These photos will look familiar to anyone who has worked with Pipe Major (P/M) Sandy Hain.
His basement is a veritable museum of Scottish piping history.
Sandy was the Pipe Major of the 2nd Battalion of the Black Watch.
He received his instruction from the legendary Willie Ross at the Pipe Majors' Course at Edinburgh Castle.
These are just a few of the priceless photos which line the walls.
