I assume it relates to The Northern Meeting of Pipers.
The Northern Meeting Park still exists up there and is host to Inverness Hog many Party.
When I was young, there were also Northern Meeting Rooms in the town centre.
Re: Corriechoillie’s Welcome To The Northern Meeting
This tune’s full title is “Corriechoillie’s Welcome to the 49th Northern Meeting”, the Northern Meeting being A Piping Competition in Inverness, -still one of the top Piping contests. This “Corriechoillie”was a piping enthusiast, and the son of the famous and very wealthy West Coast cattle/sheep drover, John Cameron (from Corriechoillie, Lochaber, -hence the nickname), who used the drovers trail from Kyle of Lochalsh down to the Falkirk sales. A great character - stories of this legendary sheep & cattle man can be found by ‘googling’ him + drover etc.
