RM Band Scotland

As one of the five bands that make up the musical wing of the Royal Navy, RM Band Scotland plays a crucial role in boosting troop morale, supporting international diplomacy and paying tribute to their fallen comrades.


The master musicians of RM Band Scotland are highly skilled in at least two instruments – and often many more. Together, these versatile and talented musicians undertake a wide variety of ceremonial commitments across Scotland and the North of England. 
Just some of the band’s recent engagements include the launch of the new Daring-class destroyers and the commissioning of the submarine HMS Astute. 
As with all Royal Marines Bands, the men and women of RM Band Scotland also perform a vital secondary role supporting the Fleet during active operations, with a number of personnel having seen service in Afghanistan and Iraq.
