Welcome to The Wester Ross Piping & Drumming Trust

Wester Ross Piping & Drumming Trust (WRPDT) is a not for profit organisation which aims to provide opportunities for education, development and learning of both Bagpipes & Drums in all forms.


Based in Wester Ross, these opportunities are aimed at, but not exclusive to young people living in the Highlands of Scotland.


With a particular focus on those who live in rural or deprived areas, the Trust’s key aims are to create an inclusive, fun and secure environment, to allow the creative talents of its members to thrive. In addition to the educational focus, we also offer an annual solo competition, providing an opportunity to showcase newly found skills, and create a stronger bond within the wider Piping & Drumming Community, creating links between areas and other regional groups.


Charitable status is currently pending for the organisation, and all of our tutors are fully vetted through the PVG Scheme.
