For our first incentive Highland Games event of the 2019 season, we had a great turn out all round. We had the perfect Highland Games field.

We had perfect Scottish weather; for a February morning, it turned out crisp with some mist. By the time the games commenced, the sun was out and it was a blistering 13 degrees!

Creating my Contemporary Harris Tweed kilt outfit Being a proud Scotsman and spending much of my time in a kilt, when the time came for a new one I really wanted to create something made in Scotland from Scottish materials.  Being such an exciting and rewarding experience I wanted to share it, and  some of the knowledge I gathered during the journey. The first step in the process was deciding what fabric I wanted to use in the kilt.  I knew I didn't want to go for a traditional tartan, and tweed [...]

We were incredibly lucky to experience some great weather for the filming.  10 degrees and bright sunshine at the end of November was the best we could hope for, and led to a great [...]
