Well, a few weeks ago we spent the Evening in the Great Hall of the Castle, this weekend we were at a different castle for an afternoon of Jousting.
The castle this time was Linlithgow Palace, once home to many of the Stuart Kings.
It is an excellent location for the jousting. The grassy area outside has a slight slope, so that wherever you end up sitting, you still get a great view.
This is the view looking down from the Palace towards the jousting area.
And this is the view from the jousting area back to the palace.
The Jousting show was amazing. Really good fun. There were also some stalls showing medieval foods, weapons and armour as well as some little shows demonstrating various parts of medieval life.
It's on again this coming weekend so if anyone is local and has nothing else planned then I would highly recommend it.
I'll leave you all now with a little slide-show of some photos of the day. I need to give credit to my brother for some of these photos, the really clear close-ups of the jousting. His were so much better than mine.
I recommend clicking the arrows button in the bottom right corner when you view this to see it in full screen.
Also, ten points to anyone who recognises the soundtrack! I'll give you all a clue tomorrow :0)
