Lovely photos Scotkat and lovely to see so many enjoying the good weather. We were at Stirling Highland Games last weekend and my young grand daughter is now yearning to become a Highland Dancer. She already does Ballet and Tap. Grandson aged 6 was disappointed not to be invited to take part in races for his age group. The Thornton Highland Games invited the wee ones to participate. When I told him that, he was dying to have a go. He settled for running around the field while his mum timed him. Its been a great year of events and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to seeing Part 2 of your day out.
Snoopdog my OH no longer wears suits on formal occasions but is happy to wear his kilt instead. Like Scotkat's OH he had his hand stitched by a local tailor. The fit is very important and each kilt is made to measure. It takes 8 yards of material for a mans kilt and the heavier weight worsted material keeps the kilt looking pristine no matter how much wear it gets. Recently Lidl has been selling 5 yard and 8 yard kilts for men along with jackets and shirts. They are imported from China and machine stitched and made of synthetic or wool blends. They are very cheap but I dk how well they would look. If you fancy one try that first. Everybody loves a man in a kilt lol. Don't worry about what to wear under it. When men were in the trenches fighting they left the underwear off and it was customary when the officers were having dinner in the mess unless there were ladies present.
