Highland dancers at the parliament in Edinburgh
I was down at the Scottish parliament building this week, t0o watch the Highland dancers. The event was celebrating the queen’s visit to Edinburgh in her jubilee year. Massed pipe bands marched down the Royal Mile to Holyrood, followed by an ever increasing crowd of excited spectators. There’s something very stirring about the sound of so many Highland pipers playing together outdoors.
Once at the parliament building, there was plenty of music, and also a couple of superb displays by a team of Scottish Highland dancers. They made a great sight!
Here’s a weel-kent face from around Edinburgh and further afield. Michael does a great line in unicycling, juggling, stilt walking and various other tricks. He’s multitasking here, and smiling as well!
…and a big thank you for not dropping the clubs while I was taking this shot!
