Traquair Medieval Fayre
Traquair dates back to 1107. It was originally a hunting lodge for the Kings and Queens of Scotland and later a refuge for Catholic priests in times of terror. The Stuarts of Traquair played their role in the colourful history of Scotland as supporters of Mary Queen of Scots and the Jacobite cause.
The Medieval Fayre is an excuse to dress up and have some fun while keeping some of this history alive.
Set against the backdrop of Scotland’s oldest inhabited house, Traquair House, Innerleithen, near Peebles in the Scottish Borders, it provides atmosphere and context to the event.
These images were taken on 28 May 2011 the first day of a two day event. This event was one of many that are organised there throughout the year. If you live in the area and are looking for something to do, it is a good day out, less than 30 miles drive from Edinburgh through scenic countryside. Read more
