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. Well drained and flat, with picturesque views of the Firth of Forth on the approach, and the impressive, historic Hopetoun House to provide a stunning Scottish backdrop to the games. 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!

My Contemporary Harris Tweed Kilt Outfit

Creating my 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.
