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.

Musketeers marching to the battleground

On parade

Pikeman showing a typical stance

Clouds of smoke from the gunpowder surround the soldiers

A lone Mosketeer firing from the gun battery

A large flame leaping from the barrel of a musket

Musketeers firing straigh towards us
