CASTLE STALKER,where many scenes from Monty Python's "Monty Python and the Holy Grail " were filmed

King Arthur: I am your king.

Peasant Woman: Well, I didn't vote for you.

King Arthur: You don't vote for kings.

Peasant Woman: Well, how'd you become king, then?

[Angelic music plays... ]

King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king.

Dennis the Peasant: Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

Arthur: Be quiet!

Dennis the Peasant: You can't expect to wield supreme power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!

Arthur: Shut up

Dennis the Peasant: I mean, if I went around saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

Arthur: [grabs Dennis] Shut up! Will you shut up?!

Dennis: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system!

Arthur: [shakes Dennis] Shut up!

Dennis: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help, I'm being repressed!

Arthur: Bloody Peasant!

Dennis: Ooh, what a giveaway!

Castle Stalker picturesquely set on a tidal islet on Loch Laich, an inlet off Loch Linnhe. It is about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) north-east of Port Appin, Argyll, Scotland, and is visible from the A828 road about mid-way between Oban and Glen Coe.

In recent times, the castle was brought to fame by the Monty Python team, appearing in their film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.


As Monty Python used to say, "And now for something completely different." Different at least from my last seven posts.


They don't call dusk the "photographer's golden hour" for nothing. A golden veneer of light is cast across shallow floodwaters that both envelop and reflect all that dared stand in the way.


Highly recommended (by 4 out of 5 photo editors) large on black

**Although the thought is appreciated, please no graphic awards or invites**

This shot reminded me of one of my favorite movies, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.


"Follow! But! follow only if ye be men of valor, for the entrance to this cave is guarded by a creature so foul, so cruel that no man yet has fought with it and lived! Bones of full fifty men lie strewn about its lair. So, brave knights, if you do doubt your courage or your strength, come no further, for death awaits you all with nasty big pointy teeth."


Wishing everyone a Happy Sliders Sunday! ...minus any bunny bites : )

As Monty Python would say "And now for something completely different" Another day out in London with great friend Tracey Whitefoot, we decided to concentrate on something a little different from the normal area's that are photographed all too often. I found it very enjoyable literally just doing something that differs from my normal offerings

It snowed yesterday and I was fooling around with the camera ... these are my new blue suede running shoes. Whenever I wear them, the Shoe Follower from Monty Python's 'Life of Brian' comes to mind.

Doune Castle in Scotland or the Castle of the Monty Python movie! The tour guide said that there is a day where the visitors can take their coconuts to clap then around. I don't know if it's true but definitely a funny idea ...




Just realized is was also used as the set for Winterfell in Game of Thrones!

those Monty Python lovers amongst you will remember the Castle of Aaargh :D

Can't decide which to use!!


For FGR..of course..Ministry of Silly Walks..a bit of a take on Monty Python

The Doune (Monty Python) castle in Scotland. I'm glad that I live now

The title of this is a quote from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I need to watch it again.


Dim the Lights

Suffering with a bit of the Monty Pythons today!

This was the castle used in the movie "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" in 1974. Also the setting for the 1952 movie "Ivanhoe" with Elizabeth Taylor.

Goosestepping Through Toronto..


While shooting downtown a year ago i shot this photo of a man enthusiastically goosestepping across the street. It was one of those moments that last only a second and are gone.


it brought a smile to my face and i reminisced about the Monty Python "ministry of silly walks" skit starring John Cleese.


Thank you for visiting for marking my photo as a favourite and for the kind comments,

In honor of the Monty Python reunion, the LEGO Group has announced the Holy Grail themed Collectible Minifigures Series 14.


List of minifigures:


1. Arthur, King of the Britons and also an expert of swallows (both African and Europian).


Memorable quotes: "Run away, run away!"


2. Patsy: King Arthur's trusty serf.


Memorable quotes: "It's only a model!"


3. The Black Knight: a fearless warrior (he never gives up a fight) and the guard of the bridge (well, a short plank of wood actually). Detachable limbs!


Memorable quotes: "None shall pass!", "I've had worse.", "Just a flesh wound."


4. Head Smashing Monk: including the ceremonial plank of wood that makes a smashing scene (literally).


Memorable quotes: "Pie Jesu Domine, Dona eis requiem"


5. Sir Bedevere: a knight who is also wise in the ways of science: a master of logical deduction ("If she weighs the same as a duck, she's made of wood...") and an excellent strategist.


Memorable quotes: "...and that, my liege, is how we know the Earth to be banana shaped."


6. The Witch: a beautiful woman dressed as a witch, having a nose like a witch and proven to be a witch (warning: science content!). The bag includes a peasant who has been turned into a newt.


Memorable quotes: "I'm not a witch."


7. Sir Lancelot the Brave: one of King Arthur's bravest knights. He also loves to attend weddings.


Memorable quotes: "Oh dear... is he all right?"


8. Sir Galahad the Pure: it's his duty as a knight to sample as much peril as he can (but he is not allowed to do so; it is too perilous).


Memorable quotes: "I can tackle this lot single-handed!", "Blue. No, yel..."


9. Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot, who had nearly fought the Dragon of Angnor, who had nearly stood up to the vicious Chicken of Bristol and who had personally wet himself at the Battle of Badon Hill. Including an extra set of armor for Sir Robin (just in case...).


Memorable quotes: "You tit! I soiled my armor I was so scared!", "I've done it again!"


10. The French Taunter: a French soldier armed with colorful language and livestock (chickens included). Do not let him taunt you a second time.


Memorable quotes: "I fart in your general direction!", "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!", "Fetchez la vache!"


11. Zoot lives in the castle Anthrax (famous for its hospitality), where she and her "eight score blondes and brunettes" have nothing to do all day but bathe, dress, undress and make exciting underwear. She occasionally turns on the grail-shaped beacon (for which she should be punished!).


Memorable quotes: "Prepare a bed for our guest!", "Doctor Piglet, doctor Winston, practice your art!"


Buy a second one! Dingo: Zoot's identical twin sister, an advocate for a specific form of punishment.


Memorable quotes: "Oh, wicked, bad, naughty, evil Zoot! Oh, she is a bad person, and she must pay the penalty!"


12. Tim the Enchanter: a powerful and pyromaniac wizard, capable of creating fire without flint or tinder. He also works as a tourist guide organizing sightseeing tours to such sites like the cave of Caerbannog. Group discounts!


Memorable quotes: "There are some who call me...Tim", "It IS the rabbit!"


13. Sir Bors and the Rabbit of Caerbannog: even though Sir Bors is a noble knight he is not flawless: he tends to lose his head easily. His nemesis, the mighty beast of Caerbannog is also included in the same bag (no, not behind the rabbit, it IS the rabbit!)


Memorable quotes: "One rabbit stew comin' right up!"


14. Brother Maynard: a scholar (expert of the aramaic language) and the carrier of sacred relics, including the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch. He is an enthusiastic researcher of mythical creatures, he once observed the legendary black beast of aaaarrgh!


Memorable quotes: "Skip a bit, Brother!", "It is the legendary black beast of aaaarrgh..."


15. The Keeper of the Bridge of Death: he watches over the Bridge of Death, which spans the Gorge of Eternal Peril. Knights suffering from color blindness should keep away! The bag also includes five ("three, sir!"), er, three questions!


Memorable quotes: "What... is your favourite colour?"


16. Sir Not-Appearing-In-This-Series: appearance/weapons/accessoires as portrayed in the film.


Special thanks go to Gary^The^Procrastinator for his suggestions.


Just when you least expect them...


In the early years of the 16th century, to combat the rising tide of religious unorthodoxy, the Pope gave Cardinal Ximinez of Spain leave to move without let or hindrance throughout the land, in a reign of violence, terror and torture that makes a smashing film. This was the Spanish Inquisition...


Watch the original scenes HERE, HERE and THERE.


"Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise... Surprise and fear... Fear and surprise... Our two weapons are fear and surprise... And ruthless efficiency.... Our three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency... And an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope... And nice red uniforms."




PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT: please support my Monty Python and the Holy Grail sets on CUUSOO. Thank you!


Castle Stalker (Scottish Gaelic: Caisteal an Stalcaire) is a four-story tower house or keep picturesquely set on a tidal islet on Loch Laich, an inlet off Loch Linnhe. It is about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) north-east of Port Appin, Argyll, Scotland, and is visible from the A828 road about midway between Oban and Glen Coe. The islet is accessible (with difficulty) from the shore at low tide. The name "Stalker" comes from the Gaelic Stalcaire, meaning "hunter" or "falconer".


In recent times, the castle was brought to fame by the Monty Python team, appearing in their film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

This was a world famous frase in the the absurd and humorous sketches of "Monty Python's Flying Circus". Yesterday -after 40 years- they performed again on a reunion show in London. I love them! The frame i took at an old energy plant in Zwolle. via 500px

I think not. Taking a break from wood cutting---the manliest of manly activities (despite what Monty Python's "Lumberjack" song would lead you to believe).

"That's the most foul, cruel and bad tempered rodent you ever set your eyes on!'


Rabbit Stew

Stalker Castle is a four story tower house or keep picturesquely set on a tidal islet on Loch Laich, an inlet off Loch Linnhe. It is located about 2.5 km north east of Port Appin, Argyll, and visible from the A828 main road about mid-way between Oban and Glen Coe. The islet is accessible (with difficulty) from the shore at low tide. The name 'Stalker' comes from the Gaelic Stalcaire, meaning 'hunter' or 'falconer', and should therefore be pronounced 'stal-ker', with the 'l' sounded, not as in the pronunciation of the English word 'stalker'. In recent times the castle was brought to fame by the Monty Python team, appearing in their film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It also appeared in the film Highlander: Endgame. The Castle's implausibly picturesque appearance, with its bewitching island setting against a dramatic backdrop of mountains, has made it a favourite subject for postcards and calendars, and something of a cliché image of Scottish Highland scenery. It should be noted, however, that Stalker is entirely authentic. It is one of the best-preserved medieval tower-houses surviving in western Scotland.

It's been a long time, but I really felt like posting something on Flickr for some reason... I started up a 365 project, but I don't know if I wanna do that or come back here... I miss posting photos... I hope everyone here has be doing well!! I miss you all!

Whilst on holiday near Oban I took a little trip to the very picturesque Castle Stalker (of Monty Python and the Holy Grail fame) on its little lonely island on Loch Linnhe. This is a long exposure to smooth out the already calm surface of the loch.
