Default Early piping and fiddle competitions in Britain

Hello,
I just had an opportunity to view several piping and violin medals from the 1890s and two were presented buy two organizations I am not familiar with, so hence my inquiry . Has anyone ever heard of the PAAC or the HSE ? The PAAC was most likely an agricultural and athletic org and perhaps the HSE was the Highland Society of England but searches on the net have come up blank.

Any help appreciated,
Barry

Perth Amateur Athletic Club?
Highland Society of Edinburgh?

Both were very much in existence in the 1890s, based on articles in the newspaper archives.
