I like the almost "conversational" style of "The Day We Went to Arran". It is certainly high up on my list.

No one favourite tune as my tune tastes change with my mood. Tunes that get played at home more often that others are:

From our past repertoire the 2/4 March The Drunken Piper, the hornpipe Ina MacKenzie and the reel The Silver Spear

Current Tunes - The retreat Shoals of Herrin, 6/8 march Ishabel T McDonald and the reel Kate Dalryimple

Non band tunes, 9/8 retreat Heights of Dargai, 3/4 retreat Kilworth Hills and the jig Cork Hill are currently top of the pops!

hard to have one favourite since that depends on the mood I'm in -- but tonight the Haughs of Cromdale wins out over the Mist Covered Mountains.

PS and any piper who suggests they like Itchy Fingers will be getting that very very very very hard chanter reed to blow in for me!

Well, not that I'm technically a member.....but I'm a big fan of the Burns set.
Other than that the medleys (Creeks and Danish Knifegrinder) really get the blood going.
As with Peter, I do change preference with my mood but these ones are always up there....for what it's worth.
Cheers.

It's gotta be Craggs of Tumbledown Mountain.

"O'er the Bows to Ballindalloch" is such a bright and lively example of the uniquely Scottish strathspey genre that I think it would be far up the list for me.

Highland Laddie is definitely up there.

Also Highland Cradle Song is a favourite and Pipers Waltz
