Reel Time Ceilidh band plays Dalmahoy for Hogmanay celebrations

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

We put on a Reel Time spectacle for this years Hogmanay celebrations at Marriott Dalmahoy. The Guests enjoyed some traditional highland dancing during dinner before the Reel Time Ceilidh band got the guests on the packed dance floor.  For the bells, a 6 piece pipe band joined the Ceilidh band for an awesome entrance into 2009.  Happy New Year to all who made such an effort making this a great event.

We had some great fun at a recent foreign festive wedding at Borthwick castle.  The family had taken over the castle with their closest friends to celebrate their wedding.  Graham Carnie was the photographer for the evening and has sent us through some great shots.

Roddy on Fire

Yes, quite literally.  I had an interesting incident at a wedding last Saturday, when piping guests in for dinner. While passing a candle in a tall flower display, my feather hat caught alight.  Luckily toastmaster John Smith was on hand to extinguish the flames.  Luckily no one was hurt, but I now have a fairly worthless non feather bonnet!   Fellow pipers please take note.
