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.

 

I was never a big Monty Python fan, too young ; ) but I have a special allegiance with Michael Palin. He's from Sheffield and I just found him to be so likeable. As such I always enjoyed watching his travel programmes. Especially Around the World in 80 Days. There is one programme (I bought the DVD of course) ; ) that I have watched over and over and I also bought the book and the audio tape. It used to help me get to sleep.

 

And when I took biggest and littlest helper to see the pantomime of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves at the Lyceum in December, I was just so happy to see Mr P playing the part, pre-recorded, of the face in the Mirror...you know the bit "Mirror Mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all"...every time the Mirror went away Mr P would say "Up the blades!"...it was very funny.

 

Relevance to the pylon? None. But I quite like the structure, the lines and the clouds. Love clouds.

 

Always look up.

 

Day 79, done.

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

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 ...

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 ift.tt/1z7Ky6s

Monty Python came to mind when the soliders marched by for the changing of the guards. Kremlin, Moscow, Russia

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

and not then.

 

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

Built in the 14th century, Doune Castle has been used as a film set for Ivanhoe, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, as Winterfell in the pilot of Game of Thrones, and as Castle Leoch in Outlander.

To cite Monty Python: And now for something completely different..
