Reviewed Index of Scottish Clothing Sites on the web
- Here is a new project I have begun. There are an awful lot of sites out
there on the web about kilts, tartan, Scottish clothing, great kilts, etc.,
and the history of Highland Dress. Some have good information, but there is
a lot of poor scholarship, myth, misconception, and plain old wrong
information out there, too.
How does someone know the difference? With my experience in the world of
Highland Dress and study of its history, I have started to index these sites
out there that deal with this topic and review them. A lot of them have very
good information, and a lot of them simply repeat the same old "tartan myths"
that have been floating around for ages. And some of them have some new ones
I have never heard of!
To view this index, go to:
There are many more sites out there not listed yet, and if anyone would like
to suggest a site to me for inclusion, please let me know. Also, if anyone
would like to discuss one of the sites, you are welcome to get in touch with
This is primarily a resource for people looking for information about
Highland Dress on line and seeking a way to evaluate the information that is
