Kilts and tartans

Good morning !


Photo by Stellapurple of Verdun Connections (Nov. 2007)

How many different tartans do you see on these kilts ?

Are they Irish or Scottish ?

To what clans or families they belong to ?

JM..The Greenish kilt is worn by the Black watch and red one is  a Royal Stewart Tartan  worn by  the regimental pipes and drums   Originating in Scotland  - not Ireland.
