Friends of Perth & Kinross Archive: The Toun Pipers of Perth

Culture Perth & Kinross -

Like most towns and burghs in the lowlands, Perth employed a piper to play around the town (toun) each day at dawn and dusk as well as at key events in the annual life of the townspeople.

In this talk, local piper Stuart Letford discusses the men who held the post until c.1805 when the last Toun Piper died.

Who are the Friends of The Archive?

The Friends group was started in 2000 by Archive users who wanted to know more about the records that make up our history and culture. They also realised they could help make the records more accessible and generally support the work of the Archive staff through projects and activities.

Membership of the Friends is open to anyone. As a member, you’ll receive the latest newsletter and participate in our programme of talks and outings. Some members contribute articles to the newsletter or use their talents and enthusiasm as volunteers on projects in the Archive itself.
