Yesterday we drove to Blair Castle to watch the Highland games. (My daddy’s name is Blair so that made this castle extra cool .)
We watched a whole band of bagpipers march into the ceremony. It was loud but amazing!!! This is a picture of the band.
Then I watched a tug-of-war. The tug-of-war was the band against the Highlanders. The Highlanders are the real athletes and the band was trying their best. It was sort of a joke but they took it very seriously until the band lost superfast. (In about 3.5 seconds)
The band, the officers and the Highlanders all had a really race in their kilts too. A guy from the band fell down and his kilt flipped up. He wasn’t wearing any underpants and everyone saw his rear end! He stood up and kept running! The Highlanders, once again won.
This is the most amazing thing I have seen in Scotland so far. There was also a caber toss. A really strong man in a kilt tries to flip a telephone pole end over end in the caber toss.
