Carol-Anne provides lessons in bagpipes and accordion in Thurso.

Carol-Anne Mackay comes from Strathy on the north coast of Sutherland. It was here that she began her piping, aged nine, under the instruction of the late Pipe Major Charles O’Brien BEM from Strathnaver. Since then, Carol-Anne has been a regular prize-winner of high-grade competitions locally and nationally and is in great demand as both a piping and accordion tutor and piper for Highland dancing.
