Begg Bagpipes, established in 1980, spent many years at different locations in Glasgow City Centre but are now located in the lovely, historical town of Kirkintilloch, 8 miles north east of Glasgow. We are known throughout the piping world for top quality Bagpipes merchandise and customer service. We can supply repair or refurbish any item connected to most types of bagpipes.
Our particular speciality is the bagpipe bag made from top grade sheepskin and cow hide. The Begg pipe bag is used by the majority of top bands and solo pipers. The bag has been used extensively by the Highland Regiments via the army contracts in the 1980s and also by the Strathclyde Police during its success in the 80s and up until today - yes that's right 30 years of being under the long arm of the law! Other notable customers include many Champions - The Simon Fraser University Pipe Band, Shotts and Dykehead, Field Marshall Montgomery, Inveraray and District, Mr R Macleod and Mr G Walker to name but a few. .
The company started from a home base and soon set up premises in Robertson St. 1982-87, Glasgow followed by another successful period in Renfield St with Hector Russell kiltmaker. 1987-96 & up until recently within Biggars Music Shop in Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow,1996-2001.(End of Lease). We then moved into our own self-contained shop 30 yards away from Biggars at 202A Bath Street, Glasgow. With the development of the internet, online shopping and email, the number of customers physically visiting the shop went into a steady decline as the opposite happened with online sales. So it was decided to move to a new location in nearby Kirkintilloch. The shop supplies by mail order worldwide as well as to many customers who visit during the day.
