Barra teenager Eilidh Macleod who was tragically killed in the Manchester bombing
has been remembered at a major youth bagpiping event.
Sgoil Lionacleit Pipe Band dedicated an emotional performance to their fellow band
member at the Scottish Schools Pipe Band Championships.
Eilidh was among 22 people who died when a suicide attacker detonated a nail bomb
at an Ariana Grande concert last May.
Her friend Laura MacIntyre was badly injured in the blast.
Eilidh’s parents and sisters were in the audience at this year’s competition as Sgoil
Lionacleit took third place in the freestyle with a set of tunes which opened with
the Gaelic air, Fair Maid of Barra.
As the three hornpipe dancers saluted to her memory, a lone piper reprise of the
same tune closed the set.
The family said they were “deeply touched” by event organisers creating an award
in her name.
The Eilidh MacLeod Endeavour Award was won by Ullapool and District Pipe Band.
