In Scotland today, kilts - and particularly the full Highland Dress outfits such as shown here - are a perfectly acceptable alternative to a suit or morning suit. They're often worn at weddings and other official events. At ceilidhs (Scottish dances, best thing ever!) kilts are often worn with a more informal, 'Jacobite' shirt - mainly because it'd be way too hot to wear the kind of heavy jacket seen above!

Accidental kilt van
A truly Scottish offering for you today. I was trying to take a picture of the gorgeous Ramsay Garden apartments below the castle, when this van turned up and stopped right in front of me on the Mound, as if trying to say - here I am! Pick me! Pick me! So I did.
