Speedy Newtonmore piper@the gates of dawn of 2014

 Lights in Newtonmore

 The speedy piper sprints away alone from the Glen Hotel

.... leaving the procession to struggle along as 
best they can in the wake of the speeding piper

 Decorated snow plough

 A good crowd on Newtonmore's Main Street

 Crowd on the golf course headed for the tent and 
their dram of Stag's Breath and shortcake

 Now stationary pipers await 2014


Faces in the crowd on the Newtonmore Golf Course

 Davy Holt entertained the crowd in the lead up to 2014

 More than ten minutes of fireworks from the stroke of midnight
