Brilliant, thank you so much Glenurquhart, I now have a better idea of the date, and it is good news that the chanter should be easier to reed. I really hope to get it playing for Piobaireachd soon. With your vast experience do you have any idea of who the maker might have been, or whether they are more likely to have been east or west Scotland?

Many thanks, will
