Scott also explained the origin of the instrument we call bagpipes. It predates Scotland. He told how the Great Highland War Pipe would lead troops into battle.



Scott was asked about the difference between Scottish Bagpipes and Irish Bagpipes. Irish pipes usually have 2 drones - a bass and tenor - while the Scottish have another tenor drone too.
