And these are some really cool young guys from Brittany, with real Scottish bagpipes.
The Bagad Lann Bihoué is a Bagad, Breton pipe band.  The band represents the French Navy and France in multiple national and international events, and is the only remaining French professional military Bagad.
The young men we spoke to were utterly charming, intelligent, well-spoken, proud of their tradition, and an absolute credit to it.

Okay, we cheated, we talked to them on Saturday and took their snaps then too.
Oh Flower of Scotland…
