Ullapool and District Junior Pipe Band is a community based competing Pipe Band under the auspices of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association.

Based in and around Ullapool, a village on the north west coast of the highlands of Scotland, we have been teaching, practicing and playing since 1979.

We currently run two bands and have over 50 registered members.
