Our business stems from the deep love we have for the wonderful land of Scotland with its music, history, and fascinating culture.

Our names are Ottavio Gusmini and Doina Dragotoiu, and we are husband and wife.

Ottavio is the owner of the business and is a professional musician, graduated in percussion instruments from the Milan Conservatory, but then he fell in love with bagpipes and Scotland to the extent of deciding to move for a couple of years to Scottish soil to perfect his skills in bagpipes at the prestigious College of Piping and National Piping Centre, becoming a personal student of the great Willie Morrison.

An esteemed piper and experienced educator, he is a deep connoisseur of Scottish culture and history. Also active in the publishing field, among his publications there are a method for Scottish bagpipes and a book dedicated to Scottish castles and legends (both in Italian).

Doina, on the other hand, is a professional nurse. However, she lends a helping hand to Ottavio when needed, assisting him during busy periods. She accompanied her husband during the years of their Scottish sojourn, falling in love with Scotland, its landscapes, and its culture, although to be honest, a bit less with its icy winter wind! She supports Ottavio in all his endeavors, so it is largely thanks to her innate encouragement that this commercial venture was born.

Our philosophy is based on careful selection of products on the market, so as to offer you only the best and to avoid those items that ultimately prove to be only a waste of time and money. Indeed, with us, you will find exclusively products that we have personally tested and of which we are therefore absolutely certain of their quality!
