Hi Aron,
I followed your advice and have experimented with the following three commands. The first one solved my ragged-right problem but gave me an uneven horizontal compression affecting only the grace notes. This was not so good and I would have prefered to compress the melody notes which are unnecesarily spaced.

\score {
    \new Staff  {

    \override Score.SpacingSpanner.strict-note-spacing = ##t
%    \override SpacingSpanner.uniform-stretching = ##t
% \override SpacingSpanner.base-shortest-duration = #(ly:make-moment 1/16)

If you see a way of achieving this it would being interesting to hear from you again. I have forwarded a copy of this to Sven Axelsson who is the author of the bagpipe incude files to see if there could be a Connection there.

If I had to guess, it looks like overfull lines of music where LilyPond
runs beyond the right margin.  Note that LilyPond usually warns you of
this, so double-check your compiler output to confirm.  You will likely
need to reduce the spacing between notes if you are intent on squeezing
in that much music on a single line.  Review the documentation on
horizontal spacing [1].
