His piping was honoured by being named The Caledonian Society of Hawaii’s ‘Scot of the Year’ for 2010, for services to the Scottish/Hawaiian community. Also hailed as Scottish Ambassador for The Princess Ka’iulani Project, Hamish also took the story of Hawaii’s most beloved Hawaii/Scot back to her father’s homeland in 2009!
