Buskers playing the bagpipes on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh are a great
nuisance to people who live and work on or near the Royal Mile. The sound
is incredibly loud and intrusive.
According to the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982 (Section 54), it is
unlawful to play a musical instrument in a way which gives any other
person reasonable cause for annoyance.
We respectfully ask the Police and Local Authorities to enforce this law.
We, the undersigned, call on the Police and Local Authorities to stop buskers
from playing the bagpipes on the Royal Mile.
