After initially having "pre-loved" kilts of Wallace tartan, we have been wearing the Maclaine of Lochbuie tartan since the mid 1960’s.
The band is active at civic and charitable functions in Hornsby and surrounding districts. April is always our busiest month playing at the Bundanoon is Brigadoon Highland Gathering and the ANZAC Day Parade in Sydney as well as ANZAC commemoration services at Kirribilli and Hornsby (Hornsby 2009 Anzac Day Dawn Service - video)

In 2008 we formed a combined Band - Waratah and Thistle Pipes and Drums which had members of Hornsby, Singleton, Wingham, Canobolas and Scone bands for a trip to Scotland. This was combined sightseeing tour and also a chance to play at various venues including Duart Castle, Stirling Castle, Culloden, Nethy Bridge Highland Games ( Link - Nethy Bridge massed bands 2008 video).
