MacDougall, Gavin

Gavin MacDougall was Duncan’s son. He was a top solo piper in the late 1800′s, and turned bagpipes for his father eventually taking over the MacDougall shop in Aberfeldy in 1898 upon his father’s death. He began using African blackwood as cocuswood and good quality ebony became harder to acquire.
