The Scots Guards (SG), is one of the Foot Guards regiments of the British Army. Their origins lie in the personal bodyguard of King Charles I of England and Scotland. Its lineage can be traced back to 1642, although it was only placed on the English Establishment (thus becoming part of what is now the British Army) in 1686. It is the oldest formed Regiment in the Regular Army, more so than any other in the Household Brigade. The Pipes and Drums are made up from soldiers of the Battalion and conduct their training alongside the remainder of the soldiers. Much of the Pipes and Drums training day is spent developing their musical prowess for national or international tour or competitions.

After training at Infantry Training Camp at Catterick soldiers are able to develop their musical abilities at the Army School of Bagpipe Music and Highland Drumming in Edinburgh. When complete, they will return to the Pipes and Drums, where the Pipe Major and the Drum Major will continue their training.
