Two Lochgilphead High School pupils had the honour of performing at this year’s Belfast International Tattoo.

Camron MacPhail and Christopher McCartan, both aged 13, had their first practice with the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland in August and were  chosen to play in the tattoo along with another 22 members.

The tattoo, at the SSE Arena Belfast on September 6 and 7, had a youth theme to it this year with youth bands from Ireland and Australia also performing.

Commenting on the experience Camron said: ‘Playing at the Belfast tattoo was an honour and a bit surreal.’
