A warm welcome to the Lochaber Gathering Festival of Piping

 

Lochaber, once a home to brave clansmen and loyal causes, is sure to inspire the playing of the "noble instrument" and its art.  The Gathering is held in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.  Its added features offer an attractive divergence from the competitive edge.  This is purely to add to the enjoyment of the occasion, where you can relax, away from the stresses of competition  This includes a lecture programme which gives interesting insights into the lives of pipers from the past.  In many ways the Festival has developed into a great social occasion.  It is clearly now established as one of the most prestigious events on the Piping Calendar. 



Whether you are a performer or not, try and make the trip to Lochaber for this occasion.  We are extending a special welcome to overseas visitors.

Failte gu Cruinneachadh Loch Abar

Tha sinn a’ toirt failte bhlàth dhuibh gu Cruinneachadh Loch Abar.  Bha Loch Abar aig uair na h-àite far an robh Gàidhlig gu math slàn.  ’S e ar dòchas gun cluich sinn ar pàirt taobh a bhith ga togail a-rithist.  Tha sinn daonnan nar saor-thoileach a’ brosnachadh ar ceòl agus ar cànan, agus tha sinn an dòchas gun toir an fharpais seo foillseachadh air a’ cheangal nadarach eadar an cànan agus ceòl na pìob mhòr.

 

Leis an sin, tha sinn a’ toirt urram chudthromach don a’ Ghàidhlig anns gach doigh.  Bidh eadar-theangachadh, taisbeanan agus òraid ga thoirt seachad agus bidh gach duais air a’ gràbhalachadh anns a’ Ghàidhlig.

 

Tha sinn a’ toirt taing mhòr gach Goistidh, Colaiste na Pìob, na Breitheamhan, gach Stiùbhard, An Talla Neibhis, agus am Probhaist Ailean MacEanraig.
