By Scot, you're right. From the Visit Scotland website:

A warm welcome and a cracking family-friendly day out! With traditional heavy athletic events like tug-o-war and the caber toss, as well as Highland dance competitions, track and field events, and piping, the games are a spectacle like no other. And it all takes place against a scenic Scottish backdrop.

Next on the field is Cincinnati Tradition from Cincinnati, Ohio. Competing in Open Class, their 2018 program is entitled "Event Horizon". No rep information available on DCXMuseum.org.

Pit opening. Corps runs around the stage in the center of the field as if pulled in by the black hole's gravity. Guard starts on the stage. Horns now in front of the stage and strike a pose before coming. Applause for the first note! Great ensemble sound, plus a lot of movement in the opening drill already. Horns now on either side of the field, flanking the guard in the center.

The only reason CT is on this early is because they haven't had a score in a while to seed them closer to where they belong.

Great 7/4 feel in the music. Corps is playing aggressively but cleanly. Crowd is very appreciative in the early going.

Snares playing on the stage as it rotates. Stage also has blue lights along the perimeter for added effect. Hopefully the corps goes on later tomorrow so the lights show up better.

Horns staying in a tight formation, but moving within it, kind of as if they were particles floating in space. Low brass expands out, leaving the upper and middle brass in the center before they, too expand out into the formation.
