A living tradition centre where the playing of Scottish bagpipes is taught to an international standard. A large display area is very informative indeed and the staff are extremely helpful. Recommended.

I liked that they alternated Piping with Highland dancing, singing and combinations of all or several of the above. It was a very fun evening, and very reasonably priced.

The music and dancing were most entertaining. It was interesting and informative to learn about the manner in which the very young are introduced to Scottish music and the innovative manner in which they are being taught.

Only pipping college in North America. Have great Celtic shows with dancing, singing and music in an outdoor theatre. Great prices and snacks as well.

Hubby and I went to this show in August and LOVED it! The quality of the music and the performers is top notch. I feel very confident in saying they are world class. We saw Riverdance a few years ago and loved it as well and the College of Piping put on a show equally well! Highly recommend but don't... More

I attended an intensive course on the bagpipes at the College and cannot say enough about the excellent teaching that I received from James and Kylie MacHattie. The Gift Shop is well worth a visit and the College is well known for their Pipe Bands. Drop in just to see the set of Bagpipes that was used at the Battle... More

Learning to play the Bagpipes has been on my "Bucket List" for some time. During my recent vacation in Prince Edward Island, I spent some time at the College of Piping to gather additional information on their Summer programs. The people I spoke to there were very nice and extremely helpful. Not only did they provide me information about the... More

Culture. The music. We laid on our bed and relaxed while listening to the piping championships down the bottom of the lane. The gift shop carried a variety of unique and cultural gifts and were reasonably priced, The, location couldn't have been better.

Although the group was away to Scotland, we were able to watch the video of the performance they put on in Summerside. It was well worth the time we spent there.

This is definitely the gem of Summerside. People from all over the world come to this little town to learn to excel at playing the bagpipes. What a lot of talent from the performers. Many of them performed in various roles- dancing, playing various instruments including the fiddle, different drums, the bagpipes, spoons and there was highland dancing (hard shoe... More
