Thank you so much, Roy and Isabella ❤️

15/08/2021 (Jennifer and David’s wedding at Airth Castle, Stirlingshire)

Roy and Isabella were both absolutely fantastic at our wedding at the weekend. From first booking over 2 years ago, to having to change wedding dates due to covid, they have been so accommodating throughout and made the whole process really easy!
Communication was first class and despite having never met prior to the wedding because of covid, I was confident in Roy’s ability and professionalism. He was great in helping us pick tunes for each part of our day and guiding us in what would work best.
Roy’s piping skills were amazing on the day and he looked smashing too! Isabella also captured some lovely photos and videos which we were able to share.
We would 100% recommend to anybody! Thank you so much to you both. Lots of love, Mr & Mrs O’Brien xxx

Amazing! My daughter asked Roy to play at her wedding at The Vu Feb 2020. After being very picky with the piper that she wanted she was over the moon that Roy was available! Everything Roy did on the day was perfect! Both him & his wife are so lovely. I will be strongly recommending Roy to anyone needing a piper, he is 5 stars! My daughter couldn’t be happier!!
Thank you so much!

24/12/2019 (Colin and Amanda’s surprise engagement at Duck Bay, Loch Lomond)

Hi Roy,

We just had to email to send our thanks and appreciation for making the moment so very special!

Amanda had no idea that you were going to be there to play the bag pipes and play my song as I got down on one knee.  From the first email that I sent to you requesting information about your service to the way you finally performed and sounded on the morning of my proposal to my fiancée was first class. Your professionalism and the beautiful sounds of your pipes along with your bag piping skills were second to none and having a world champion piper was truly magnificent and all had hoped for. You understood the significance and beauty of my proposal and your presence and music to accompany the moment in full highland dress made life long and lasting memories we will cherish always.

Thank you for making our day that much more special and romantic.

If you would like any pictures that were taken by Katie sent to you for your use please let us know.

With full appreciation,

Colin and Amanda

08/11/2019 (Emma and Josh’s wedding at Eskmills Venue, Musselburgh)

100% recommend Adair Bagpiping Services. We wanted to add a little something extra for the arrival of our weeding guests, and Roy didn’t disappoint. The guests absolutely loved arriving to the sound of the pipes and it really started our wedding with a bang.

02/11/2019 (Jamie and Michael’s wedding at The Vu, Bathgate)

Jamie Keys Thank you for playing at our wedding yesterday. Lovely people and you were fantastic

28/09/2019 (Natalie and Terry’s wedding at Loch Ness Country House Hotel, Inverness)

Natalie Dickson Thank you again Roy, you did an amazing job on the day for us 😘 xx

13/09/2019 (Katarina’s surprise party celebrations, St Andrews, Fife)

What is the best way to start a surprise party? Hire Roy to alert the guest of honour by suddenly starting to play outside their home, then have him lead the way to the venue with the guests walking behind him! Roy was truly magnificent in his full highland dress with feathered bonnet, and his bagpiping skills perfectly matched his impressive appearance. It was a joy to walk behind him, and our big smiles stayed on for the full 20 minutes’ walk. It was a day of celebration, and this proud and immensely competent bagpiper contributed in the best possible way to the warm and happy atmosphere that lasted the whole evening. Also, being in charge of the arrangements, I cannot praise Roy and his lovely wife Isabella enough for their professionalism and thoughtfulness – always replying quickly and precisely, giving me an immediate feeling of trust and great expectations – totally justified, as it turned out. They even took it upon themselves to walk the walk beforehand and to check with the local police that they had no objections to our plans, something that really impressed me and at the same time was so very reassuring! I have no hesitation in recommending Roy (and Isabella!) for any sort of arrangement where a skilful and impressive looking bagpiper might be what it takes to set the right, high standard for the event. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Absolutely amazing! No words can describe how amazing our wedding day was, you truly were brilliant! I wish we could do it all over again, thank you so much 💗 we got married in June and the piping was just out of this world, not only were they so friendly, they were genuinely interested in your day and made an effort with all guests – thank you so much, Mr and Mrs Swinley xxx

07/09/2019 (Michelle and David’s wedding at The Alona Hotel, Glasgow)

WOW. What can I say about the service provided by Roy and Isabella. Well its very easy. We could not have asked for a better piper. From the moment we contacted for availability, Roy was always in contact, his piping was simply perfect, his attention to detail is 2nd to none. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

My husband and I are absolutely amazed at the piping service provided by Roy and Isabella. They worked with what we requested for our wedding (specific bridal entry track to pipe along with), were always easy to contact, fast to respond, excellently priced and even attended our wedding rehersal! They are both extremely friendly and it was a delight and honour to have Roy pipe for us at our wedding. Roy looked fantastic on the day and his piping skills are second to none. Highly recommend. From a very grateful bride and groom

Jean Campbell


Thank you so much for these, they are excellent. What a great photographer Isabelle is.

Thank you also for making the day even more special for my son and daughter-in- law with your music and costume, fabulous. You were so helpful from the point of booking to the event itself. You completed the scene perfectly, which would not have been the same without a Highland Piper.

I will certainly highly recommend you to others if I get the chance.

I hope you were both not too exhausted after the drive and you didn’t even accept a cup of tea!!

Please feel free to use any or all of my comments on your website.

All the very best

I was very grateful to have Roy play for us on our wedding day. We arranged a meeting to discuss what we wanted on our day and Roy and his wife could not do enough for us, they talked us through what they offer and was happy to accommodate us in anyway. Highly professional and a real gentleman. Thank you again, we had a perfect day!

Yesterday I attended a funeral for a friend. Roy Adair was there as a piper. He was in full ceremonial dress and his piping just beautiful. I would recommend him for any function. No problem. Thank you Roy
