FIONA HAY

(nee McDougall)
Fiona’s family settled in the Highlands of Scotland where she grew up near her extended family. As a child, summers were spent touring the Highland Games Circuit with her father and she also successfully competed in her teenage years.
Fiona is a well-known Celtic artist. She has had her work exhibited and sold around the world. Fiona’s Vellum collection of 14 uncut vellums, have been on display as part of the Celtic connections Festival in the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow for the past 2 years.
Her artwork often features elements from both her love of music, as well as her love of wildlife and nature. She supports a number of aspects of the business and manages the family archive. She is keen to provide the opportunity for the archived material to be shared with the world.

BURGEES BAGPIPES

Like most Highland Families our origins are a mix of clans and places.

world champion piper John Alexander McDougall was born in Aberdeen.

This piping tradition continues on to this day through his daughter Fiona and grandson Scott.
