As a Scot by inclination, married to someone who may be able to claim ancestry
from the Border but certainly not the Highland, I am suprised that no one has
recommended the Black Watch, which, when clan-kilt-wearing was outlawed, was worn
by Highland regiments who fought for the British in what is known in the US
as the French and Indian war (1750's). Among re-enactors who enjoy spending their
weekends outfitted correctly in the clothing and equipment from the period, it is
the only permissible kilt and seen quite alot.

Glad to know that "inclination" is welcome.
