Your Kilt Photos
This page is about your kilt photos and as such it will feature photos sent to me by you, the visitors to this web site.
I want you to not only enjoy the site but also to feel you can contribute, by sending me your photos that are in keeping with the site's theme,
I would like to open the page with some photos kindly sent to me by Bill, who first got in touch through the
page on the web site.
He had a wedding coming up and wanted to surprise the Bride and Groom by wearing Highland Dress, never having done such a thing before he was in need of a little advice, which I gladly gave him.
The first photo you see below is Bill proudly wearing his
for the first time, and doesn't he look handsome.
Bill's first time in Highland Dress
Next is Bill and his lady wife.

We now have the Bride and Groom, the Groom is a member of a pipe band and looks resplendent in his uniform.

Then bill once again with another
guest in full Highland Dress.

Although there are no kilts in this next photo I couldn't resist including it, and I think you will understand why they're so cute aren't they.
In the last of your kilt photos for this section, you can see how a ladies tartan skirt can look really elegant, and when the tartan matches the kilt as in this case then they compliment each other beautifully.
I hope you have enjoyed Bill's contribution to the your kilt photos page, I am very grateful to him for having taken the time to send me the photos.
I also wish to thank everyone whose photos were sent, for their kind permission to use them on this page.
The next contribution to this page (Jan 2009) comes from Carol and David, who have just come back from a cruise to Mexico.
They were kind enough to send me a photo which you can see below, taken on board ship during the first formal evening of the cruise.
Carol and David wearing Highland Dress
As you can see from the photo, they both look resplendent in Highland Dress, and are clearly enjoying their cruise.
The next photo was sent to me (Feb 09) by Rob, who although doesn't as yet own a kilt, he very proudly wears his "country cap" in his family tartan (Rattray) and I felt it is deserving of a place on the your kilt photos page.

Rob has a keen interest in genealogy and although born in Australia he has been able to trace his roots as far back as 1796, when his great great great grandfather was born in Scotland.
His grandfather migrated to Australia in 1913, and Rob is very proud of his Scottish heritage.
Many thanks to Rob for taking the time to send me the photo.
The latest your kilt photos were very kindly sent by Colin Langeveld, a South African who has lived in Liverpool for the last 52 years.
Colin has also submitted an excellent article to the website detailing how he came to own his cherished kilt, you can read the article
The Lord Mayor of Liverpool invited people to nominate someone to become an "Honorary Scouser", so Colin's good lady wife, without his knowledge did just that.
Colin was chosen to be one of forty five "outsiders" to receive the award.
Below you can see a photo of Colin resplendent in his kilt, taken with the Lord Mayor on the evening of the award ceremony.

The next photo is of Colin and his good lady wife Jo.
It was also taken at the Town Hall on the evening of the award ceremony.

Many congratulations to Colin for being awarded the status of "honorary Scouser", and again my thanks to Colin for sending in the excellent photos.
The newest addition to the your kilt photos page (June 2009) has been kindly sent to me by John from America.
The photo which you can see below was taken at a local Renaissance fair, which John was attending.

John informs me that he intends to increase his kilt collection by the end of the summer, and then again by the end of the year.
So I hope he will be kind enough to send in some more photos to the your kilt photos page, of himself wearing the new kilts.
The latest addition to the page (August 2009) has been sent to me by Jean Michel, who is a true lover of the great Highland bagpipes.
He is a Breton who's Celtic roots go back hundreds of years, he lives and plays the great Highland bagpipes in his native Brittany, and informs me that there are around two thousand pipers playing these particular bagpipes in Brittany.
He has also submitted an article to the site entitled

The latest photo to be added to the page (September 2009) has been kindly sent by Taber, who has just recently returned home to the States after he and his wife Beth spent an exciting holiday touring Scotland.
Taber is now the proud owner of an antique Gordon kilt, which you can see him wearing in the photo below.

I am sure you will agree with me that he looks very elegant in his Highland Dress, and I'm equally sure that he will find many occasions at which to wear his kilt.
Thank you Taber for taking the time to send me your contribution to the your kilt photos page.
The latest photos to update the page (October 2009) have been sent in by Robert from Brizon, France.
Robert is a very accomplished musician, and has been a professional piper since 1987
He is also a very fortunate man indeed, as his lady wife actually makes his kilts.
He was kind enough to submit an article to the site, explaining how his wife came to be a kilt maker, he even entitled it
she made me a most fortunate man.
Below you can see a photo of Robert and his family attending a tartan day celebration in Normandy France.

The kilt Robert is wearing is a MacKinnon red modern, double box pleated, made by his wife.
The next photo shows him wearing another of his wife's creations, a 22oz tweed double box pleated kilt, ideal for cutting wood for the winter.

Robert reliably informs me that this particular kilt is both weather proof, and axe proof.
I would like to thank Robert, and his lady wife for their valuable contribution to this page.
Next we have a further update (January 2010) kindly sent to me by Mike, who is a Cornish man living in the United Arab Emirates.

The last photo of Mike on the your kilt photos page, sees him with family and friends attending a rugby match in the United Arab Emirates.
He tells me he was amazed how many men were wearing kilts to that rugby match, and that it was a great day out, made all the more special because he was wearing a kilt.
