: : : Grandson goes to Renaissance Fairs and wants to participate in Scottish games; therefore he desperately wants a kilt. He would like to have a Black Watch or Campbell kilt. "Beggars can't be choosers" so any will be considered. Thank you.

: : If your grandson wants a garment that he can wear to Renasissance Faires, then he will probably be more interested in the historic feilidh-mhor or belted plaide
: : (commonly called the "great kilt"). This is a more historic form of dress than the modern tailored kilt. The belted plaid was worn from about 1590 to 1790
: : (possibly a bit later). The tailored kilt did not begin its evolution until the 1790s. The belted plaid consisted of 4 or 5 yards of woolen material, about
: : 60" or so wide, gathered into folds and then belted about the waist. It hung knee length and the upper portion was gathered about the body as a cloak or
: : shawl.

: : You can purchase such a garment through our museum gift shop in the Black Watch tartan at a low cost. Our feilidh-mhor packages are woolen blends, light enough
: : to wear in warm weather, and cost $84.50 for a 5 yard length. All of the neccessary accoutrements can also be purchased through us, such as highland shirts,
: : sporran, moggans, etc. Look at the link given below for more info.
