Francine & Mark
Highland Watchers is deeply rooted in Royal Highlanders. On June 20th, 2020, The Royal Highlanders became Highland Watchers under cover of our spiritual Scottish Godfather. Our News are on Facebook. My Wife and I are binational : Swiss-Italian (Francine) and Swiss-French (Mark). We have make the choice to live in France (Burgundian Bresse) after a full life of Blood Hound Breeder (Francine) and Former Soldier (Mark). Highland Watchers is a association registred at Louhans and dedicated to Scottish culture. This Fellowship was officialy born in 2014.
Our spiritual Godfather and Godmother are Scottish from Aberdeenshire. We learned Bagpipe and Bass Drum with the Burgundy Pipers, Jura Highland Pipes & Drums, FFPB (Agencourt) and NPC (Homburg).
We are now eight international members : UK, US, CH and FR. By our history, we play first for official public Remembrance Ceremony, Military Show & Gathering (Free in a radius ~50km) but also for Civil & Private Events (Wedding, Baptism, Funeral service and Shows). In this last case, we ask a fixed contribution and a kilometric allowance when booking.
By its History and Origin, The Highland Watchers’ Motto is : ‘We will play till the End’.
“Love and respect our culture and it will be an Honor for us that you wear our Tartan.”Bill Mc K.
