The highly coveted Grade One title remained in Scotland until 1987, when the Canadian 78th Fraser Highlanders Pipe Band became the first overseas band to win. In recent years, the title has returned to Canada with Simon Fraser University Pipe Band, and has travelled to Northern Ireland with the Field Marshal Montgomery Pipe Band, as well as travelling all the way to Australia with the Victoria Police Pipe Band. The most successful pipe bands in this competition remain Strathclyde Police Pipe Band (winning twenty times), and the House of Edgar Shotts & Dykehead Caledonia Pipe Band (winning fifteen times). Other winners include the Dysart and Dundonald Pipe Band (winning twice), the Edinburgh Police Pipe Band (winning seven times), and the Muirhead and Sons Pipe Band (winning eight times).
