Fingers crossed for Piping Hot Forres, the European Pipe Band Championships which has been shortlisted in the Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards 2014 for Best Event or Festival. The results will be announced at an event on Friday 7 November at the Kingsmills hotel in Inverness.

The Championships took place in Forres in Sat 28 June and attracted a crowd of around 17,000.

David Urquhart of Piping Hot Forres said: "We are delighted that Piping Hot Forres in only its second year has been shortlisted for this award. The event was brought to Moray by members of the Forres business community to help promote the area to the wider world to give an economic benefit for the betterment of the community and as such it has been widely embraced by the local community leading to a very successful event - providing not just a welcome boost to the local economy but also a great day out for the whole family. Fingers crossed for the night.

The 2015 European Pipe Band Championships will be held in Grant Park, Forres on Saturday 27 June 2015.
