Highland Games


Its the 51st Aberdeen Highland Games at the Hazlehead Park.

Highland Games were founded nearly 200 years ago and remain relatively unchanged. Every year, Aberdeen's Highland Games takes place on the third Sunday in June, coinciding with Father's Day.
Alongside the sporting events, there were also displays of traditional dancing and pipe bands.















Going back in time....






MrD looking like a samurai warrior rather than Braveheart.
I'm confusing the sword with a light-saber and Elsa just wanted to look good!







If MrD got his way, he would have left me there!





Our knight in shining armour!











Don't mess with me, I'm with royalty... me and Robert the Bruce are best mates.










Re-fueling....

The rousing sounds of the pipe band as they marched ceremonially into the games arena.
