|Linlithgow Palace with jousting set up on Linlithgow Peel.|

Below: the whole fountain from one side, from above , and a close-up of a Unicorn.
We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day - sunny, warm but not roasting, with a wee bit of wind rain thrown in during the joust, just to remind us it IS still Scotland.

|Introducing the competitors|
|My best picture of the competitors; not that flattering of the horses...|
And the Linlithgow Peel was gorgeous as well; mature trees for shade, all the arenas and tents well organized, and even dueling ice-cream trucks (one with real ice cream and the other with the whipped-cream-ish stuff that passes for ice cream here - but they were equally popular.)
