A team of bagpipers lead a knight to the joust. The 13th Earl of Eglinton staged a tournament for his family and friends at his estate in Ayrshire. The 4,000 expected visitors turned into 100,000 from all over the British Isles but, because tickets were free, Eglington had to spend much of the wealth of his estate on the three-day event.
Twenty of James Henry Nixon's watercolours of the event are held in the Future Museum, Scotland.
