As a piper. we sometimes refer to the instrument as the great Highland bagpipe.

Halò, co-phìobaire! Pìob-mhòr literally translates to "big pipe", but it stands for the GHB specifically. https://learngaelic.scot/dictionary/index.jsp?abairt=p%C3%ACob-mh%C3%B2r&slang=both&wholeword=false

This would distinguish between the bagpipes and small pipes? Would those be a' phiob-bheag?

What does "phìob-mhòr" literally translate as? I know "mhòr" is big/high, does "phìob" mean land or bagpipes? :-)
