Old Pipes

Edinburgh University is to display a major collection of historic bagpipes and chanters during an exhibition throughout August.
The collection was recently purchased from a private collector in France.
The 26 pieces from Scotland, England and Ireland will form part of a display that charts 250 years of bagpipe history.
The oldest exhibit is a fragment of lowland pipes, dating from the mid-18th century.
