Almost got shot and stampeded by an army of Covenanters today. Went along to see a re-enactment of the 1640 seige of Dumbarton Castle. Not quite a full army there, but definitely enough musketeers to create a frightening racket.
The visitors enjoyed the entertainment and I'm sure they also learned a few facts from Scottish history.
