Driven by Passion

How we started

We first launched Easton Bagpipes & Highland Supplies in February 2011. We wanted to provide our pupils and local pipers with easier access to quality piping and dancing supplies. Within six months we had surpassed all our initial business expectations and we were constantly growing our product portfolio.

In November 2017 we rebranded to Easton Pipes & Dance. We wanted a clean, fresh image to take our business into the future. We are constantly forward thinking with regards to technology and have made our website super user friendly for the ultimate shopping experience. We also keep up to date with all the new products available on the market, while keeping true to all the traditional items we know and love.

This is our passion, and we want to help you achieve yours.
