Cool shots, Norbert - but they beg the question: why is the piper playing there?

That gentleman is a famous local piper known as Spud The Piper, who was there earning his living by playing on the old packhorse bridge across the River Dulnain at Carrbridge.

The bridge was built in 1717, to allow funeral processions to access Duthil Church when the river was in spate. Because of this the bridge was known locally as "the coffin bridge".

if the person pictured had a SMS instead of the pipes, it might have been more likely to be Kerrowdown

Interesting. Thanks much for the back story!

to access Duthil Church
That would be the Grant Clan Centre now.
Do dearly departed still get buried there?

No I don't believe so, why are you trying to reserve a place?... thought you were gonna use the grounds of Urquhart Castle once you'd finished restoring it and putting on the roof on the place.

No, KD.
We had a mixed history from what I have read.
Some of us were Jacobites and some fought for Poms/Sassenachs.
I haven't been able to find to which lot I belong and I wouldn't want to be buried with the wrong lot!

Strangely enough I've met with Sir Patrick Grant, 14th Baronet on several occasions, he was the one actively involved in trying to arrange lottery funding back in 2014 for the centre.
