Brisbane Boys' College Pipe Band travel overseas every two years to allow the band to compete and play at the highest level. 

The Pipe Band, from Brisbane Australia, are currently touring Scotland and have chosen to stay at Scottish Youth Hostels across the country including taking advantage of our Exclusively Yours...Rentahostel service at our Stirling and Pitlochry Youth Hostels.

During their stay in Edinburgh Central Youth Hostel the Pipe Band had the chance to play at Edinburgh Castle. Then, following a three night stay in Glasgow Youth Hostel the group moved on to Stirling Youth Hostel where they had previously stayed in 2014 for their last Scottish Tour.

While in Stirling the boys, aged 12 - 18, performed to an eager crowd in Queen Anne Gardens at Stirling Castle, just a short walk from the youth hostel.

The next stop for the Brisbane Boys' College Pipe Band before they end their trip in Pitlochry is Inverness Youth Hostel where they are looking to add to their trophies already won this month when they attended the 2016 European Pipe Band Championships. Piping at Forres is the Highlands' biggest piping event of the year and we wish them all the best from everyone at SYHA Hostelling Scotland.
