Bagpipes MacGregor's Salute Bagpipes played by an unknown piper

The video contains only the first part of the tune.

The MacGregor's Salute is also known as MacGregor's Gathering. Although the composer for this piobaireachd is unknown, it could only have been one of the many fine composers who proudly carried the name 'MacGregor', both before and after their name was proscribed by King James VI.

When the name MacGregor was proscribed and their lands seized soon after the Battle of Glenfruin, 1603, clan members scattered. Some took different names, others sought the protection of other clans. Somehow the Glenlyon pipers survived and maintained a piping school from which pipers would be sent to the MacCrimmons for finishing. A MacGregor was piper to Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745. In Sir Walter Scott's words, "The MacGregors were famous for their misfortunes and the indomitable courage with which they maintained themselves as a Clan."
