Bonnie Knees


‚ÄčIn any Highland Games celebration, one of the most popular events is the bonnie knees contest. In this competition, a trio of ladies from the audience are selected to be judges and a number of men sign up to be the contestants. The ladies are then blindfolded and are forced to judge the knees of the men using only the sense of touch as a point of reference.
