James Seaton Scott

It is with deep sadness that we have to announce the death of Jim Scott on Sunday 28th June 2020. Jim was a dedicated, player, teacher and huge supporter of Perth and District Pipe Band. Jim’s funeral took place on Thursday 9th July, 11:00am, Scone Cemetery, it was fantastic to see so many Perth and District members attend in uniform from youngsters up to the not so young!! especially at such strange times that we find ourselves in, he would have been so happy to see so many. Jim will be missed by many.
