Northern Meeting Junior Competitions

A number of trophies have been presented for the Junior Competitions including The Pipe Major William Ross Trophy, the Macinnes Cup, The Northern Meeting Piobaireachd Quaich, the Evan Macrae Trophy, the Royal British Legion Brooch, the Esther Mackenzie Trophy and the Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation Cup.
