We wish you all the best wishes for the New Year and hope you have a brilliant night celebrating! We have, to celebrate New Year’s Eve, found a set of bagpipes from our collection. These aren’t actually Scottish but are in fact from Macedonia! They date to around 1922 and are made from wood and goatskin. They were collected by Mrs Margaret Hasluck, a pioneering Scottish woman who studied at both the University of Aberdeen and the University of Cambridge becoming an accomplished archaeologist, linguist, epigrapher and scholar!
