That's given me an idea for next year:

A similar carving, but of the Thornhill Piper and (in conjecture, as the original statue has been lost) Drummer - the earliest extant image of a Lowland Piper.

Vide Pete Stewart's 'Welcome Home My Dearie' Piping in the Scottish Lowlands 1690-1900

...and since I've already got a frock coat, knee britches and buckled shoes a la Geordie Syme ('a Famous Piper in his time') along with my Heriot & Allen Lowland pipes turned in the same style, there's my costume sorted as well!
