Brave knights, war horses and stunning stunts will all be on show at the National Trust for Scotland’s Castle Fraser near Inverurie this weekend.

The usual peaceful grounds will be transformed into the sounds of battle cries of brave knights, the clang of metal on metal and the whinnying of highly-trained warhorses.

On Saturday, July 20 and Sunday, July 21, the grand baronial tower house will be the backdrop to battle, medieval style.

The fearless Knights of the Damned will take to their steeds to compete for honour and glory in a traditional jousting tournament.

Property manager, Christina Low said: “Visitors will travel back in time to those days when knights competed for honour.

“Castle Fraser will be transformed with the sights, sounds and smells of medieval life, giving visitors an idea of how things might have been all those centuries ago.”

There will be plenty of other action including archery, sword fighting displays and impressive birds of prey.

Advance tickets for the event are cheaper than on the day tickets and are available at www.nts.org.uk/events and are £8.50 for adults, £6 for children and £24 for families.
