I want to get it going so I can play piobaireachd on it - that's the plan.

Your chanter is not mid-1800's but consistent with sole and bulb patterns around 1880-90, give or take. That does not make it less interesting and it should be much easier to find a properly working reed than for an earlier chanter.
