I Love The Sound Of Bagpipes

I don't know what it is about bagpipe music but for some reason I always feel a strong yearning for Scotland and the highlands whenever I hear it. I first heard the sound in an episode of 'The Avengers' years ago when Steed and Mrs Peel were staying at some haunted castle and the atmosphere and slightly haunting quality of the music has always stayed with me. A lot of people I know don't like the sound so I rarely get the chance to, but if I'm ever driving on my own in hilly and picturesque scenery, I'll whack the bagpipes CD in and listen to it's atmospheric charm while imagining I'm driving on some eerie adventure to a castle by a Scottish loch! ...If it's misty, then all the better! Och aye!
