I enjoyed the Military Tattoo at Edinburgh Castle, Scotland, 3 years ago. They played Amazing Grace and everyone was teary eyed.

We missed the Tattoo, but love bagpipes, anyway. This was taken 2003 when we were there.

Yes, in the right setting... We got to see several while on vacation in Nova Scotia... lovely... and Il Divo has a bagpiper in theri video done of Amazing Grace at the Coliseam... wow.. that will give you God bumps for sure... I gained permission from Il Divo to use that video at Bob's memorial service... Bob was a retired fire fighter, and it was exactly right for the occasion...... There was not a dry eye in the church... just beautiful... He would have loved it...

I love bagpipes, and have requested that they accompany whatever funeral is given when I pass.

One of my favorite Paul McCartney songs, Mull of Kintyre, features them -- I'll put a link below, and the pipes start about 1 min, 30 sec into the song:

One would think that Amazing Grace is the only song that is ever played on bagpipes. Sometimes I think if I hear it again I'll scream. Nothing against bagpipes or Amazing Grace- just the combination of the two ad infinitum.

I love bagpipes, but I alway get teary eyed hearing them, as I usually assoicate them with funerals etc.
