Highland Gathering.. Big men in kilts.



One last post from the Armadale Highland Gathering last weekend.You wouldn't dare call a man with a sword a sissy for wearing a kilt, although there were times when watching the swordplay and ensuing tussles that I hoped for all concerned they were wearing something underneath :)
...

As we were leaving we stopped to watch the shot-put competitors, one of the 'heavy events'. I thought blimey he's a big 'un, he's going to be hard to beat..


.... and then this guy came along :)


It's possible that I was a little distracted here.. I wish we had stayed for the tossing of the caber now 😉 The gathering was a super fun event on a beautiful spring day, definitely planning to wear tartan next year :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  1. The sword duel shots are splendidly done. Though I'm oddly reminded of Monty Python's Black Knight.

  6. My goodness there were some big fellows participating in this event. A few of them look like they came straight from Scotland for this event.

  7. They need sporrans and then no need to worry about what might be under the kilts. We didn't see one red haired Scot in Scotland so it is good to see one here, assuming he is.

  8. Rather large men in Kilts, Grace! I must say that they look better with boots rather than sneakers - tougher vibe! ;-)

  14. You just gave me a journey to when I was an 8-year old and my Dad forced me to join the musketeers on the yearly festival.

    I looked so mad he never did this again, LOL...

    When you grow up with it and have to see it every.year it´s a pain, but, yes, I think it´s good to keep history alife for the occasional visitor!

  15. I'll not criticise any of them for their dress sense. It reminds me of the time when Olympic shot-putter Geoff Capes (6ft 6 and over 300lbs) used to compete in Highland Games in the UK. He used to be a policeman near here - not too much trouble when he was on the scene!

    Hello, and welcome to our website for the best hand raised macaw parrots for sale.
    We pride ourselves in the best taming practices of macaws among aviaries.
    All of our macaws are bred in a disease-free Biosecure breeding sanctuary.
    They are well socialized, having been raised in our home as members of our
    own family in order for them to become ready to be a member of yours.
    They are quite comfortable around all ages, including the elderly and young children.
    When you purchase a bird from Us, we are committed to offering lifetime support and guidance to you and your family.

    Hand Raised Parrots for Sale, Macaw Parrots for Sale
    Macaws are playful and active and they have excited personalities to go along with their sizes.
    But this also makes them very challenging pets. They do have the ability to say words and mimic
    our speech but it is not as clear as some other pet bird species.
    Because they are so intelligent, macaws can be trained. You can start when your pet bird is young,
    and work on hand-feeding, teaching your bird to talk or sing, and training your macaw not to nip, bite, or scream.
