Saturday 13 th April

Ghillies' Ball, Invercauld (Tentative)

We joined an impressive massed band to greet the guests at the Ball. Roland Stuart was in charge and we played a good few sets, finishing up with Invercauld House. We would have played better had we been told the list of tunes in advance. Plenty of liquid refreshment afterwards but a paucity of solid food. I hope that the catering for the guests didn't go amiss.
