YOUNG musicians in a Ross-shire community have been showing their appreciation for NHS workers with a distinctively Scottish salute over recent Thursday evenings.

Bagpipe and chanter players attending Plockton High School, Kyle Primary and Lochcarron Primary have chipped in to the production of a poignant video montage which has been pulled together while they have been studying from home.

Pupils at Plockton High and the surrounding primary schools have been submitting the videos as part of their online lessons with their Thursday night tunes coinciding with the Clap for Carers movement showing support for NHS and other front line workers.

The video was compiled by Niall Stewart and includes contributions from Plockton pupils Allan Cameron, Hannah Matheson, Callum Coghill, Ciaran Kellett, Hector Finlayson and Emily MacDonald. Also featured are Kyle Primary pupils Mairi Finlayson, Donald Finlayson and Ally Matheson, and Lochcarron Primary's Owen McKenzie.

The clip posted by Plockton High School brought back memories of the area for Margaret Courten who wrote: "Lovely compilation of pipers – my favourite place in the world."
