The band takes great pride in being the official band of the House of Pacific Relations International Cottages in Balboa Park. The House of Pacific Relations is housed within the historic 1935 Exposition Cottages – a collection of 32 international houses promoting multicultural goodwill and understanding through educational and cultural programs. The band, founded in 1964, is affiliated with the House of Scotland cottage and is proud to carry the name. To commemorate their 50th anniversary in 2014 the band traveled to compete at the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow, Scotland.
Under the leadership of Pipe Major Ross Naismith and Drum Sergeant Eric Mabrey, the House of Scotland Pipe Band performs throughout San Diego and the Western United States. The band takes part in parades, festivals, competitions, civic functions, private parties, and many other celebrations. On occasion the band does travel internationally, and recently returned from Canada where they won 1st place at the 2017 Montreal Highland Games.
The House of Scotland Pipe Band is very grateful to Ballast Point Brewing Company for their continued support and dedication.
