“Land of Bens and Glens and Heroes
is a body of work which brings together a lifetime of tunes, meticulously nurtured and developed throughout a 40 year career in piping. There is a wide variety of genres here from regimental style marches, to slow airs,  jigs and reels that would be right at home in a folk session played on any of our traditional instruments. Combine this with some big and gutsy competition style tunes which would not be out of place on the boards of the elite solo piping competitions and the result is a well balanced and diverse collection”.

Finlay MacDonald 2011

“The first thing that struck me was the consistent high quality of the compositions throughout the book and that this is truly a collection of pipe music that has something for everyone. A very welcome inclusion is the beautifully crafted and tuneful Piobaireachd – “Land of Bens and Glens and Heroes” which in my opinion is as good as any modern Piobaireachd composition I have heard”.
“Great interest is added to the book through the addition of the stories and inspiration behind the composition of the tunes, and also through the photographs, which give an insight into Stuart’s long and successful career in piping and in particular in the military”.

“I have no doubt that we will hear many of these new compositions being performed on a regular basis and I am sure all will agree that this is a most welcome addition to the great archive of pipe music”.
