Ross O’Connell Jennings is a man with a plan, a plan to become the first person in the world to play the bagpipes in every country. Known as The First Piper, Ross' kilted travels have taken him everywhere from Malaysian TV to Canadian skiing festivals, and more recently he's been here in the UAE, Oman and Kuwait, always with his bagpipes in hand. 

Check out very easy-on-the-eye Ross' best shots here in the Middle East... 

In Dubai

"Habibi I hunt with this falcon, what can your bagpipes even do?" "Ok touché" For one of my mornings in Dubai I went down The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding. Initially it felt a bit contrived, but it wasn't until I had done a tour and had joined one of their group lunches that I started to appreciate everything that goes into the place. This gent here is hands down the best thing about the centre! His name is Naji, he's a true Bedouin (genuinely sleeps in that tent behind us, despite living in the city) and he has a falcon! Legend! As soon as I started piping, he was off dancing with his falcon and getting everyone involved! Thank you to the girls from the @smccudubai for the snap! #BagpipesandBedouins #SMCCU #MyDubai #VisitDubai

Precipices made for piping It's taken me a week of travelling through Oman to decide the perfect spot to pipe. Muscat and the coastline are incredible; however, mountains and bagpipes are always a win. Fortunately Oman has the Al Hajar Mountain Range, which stretch from one tip of the Arabian peninsula to another. With abandoned villages and forts dotting the hillsides, this place has endless scope for mini adventures. Jabal Akhdar (aka the Green Mountain) is where I finally decided to tick off Oman, but there's many more spots to come. Huge thank you to the @alilajabalakhdar for hosting me for a few nights and allowing me access to this private canyon. The views at this place are incredible! Oh and thank you Bex for the photo - I would not have been able to do this with self-timer! #AlilaJabalAkhdar #VisitOman #JabalAkhdar
