The Pied Piper of Scotland

Scottish Highland gathering
While walking about in Wynberg Park I heard the faint, though unmistakable, sound of bagpipes in the distance. So, much like the children in that old tale, I started following the music. After ten or fifteen minutes reached a school field hosting the Western Cape Highland Gathering - a small festival hosted by the Cape Town Caledonian Society, where pipes were played, drums were beaten, and young girls danced to joyful tunes. It was pretty cool, and I'm always a sucker for bagpipes anyway. :)
