Below are various articles and resources regarding clothing in premodern Scotland.
Historical Scottish Clothing Project
A collection of evidence for clothing from all Scottish cultures (Highland, Lowland, and all others) through at least AD 1700. Also includes evidence regarding specifically Highland clothing from later centuries as well as some evidence regarding medieval Irish clothing. This is an ongoing project and still in its beginning stages -- only a small fraction of the known evidence has been entered so far!
Scottish Women's Clothing
A basic introduction to fundamental issues concerning re-creating Scottish women's clothing.
Scottish Men's Clothing
A basic introduction to fundamental issues concerning re-creating Scottish men's clothing.
Evidence for "Great Kilt"
A discussion of the evidence for plaids worn belted, originally posted to the SCA-West mailing list (Please keep this article's informal origin in mind!)
Pseudo-16th Century Leine Pattern
This pattern has been removed. On careful examination of the available evidence and in consultation with others, I have found no credible evidence that the Irish or Scottish Gaels gathered or pleated the sleeves of their shirts. Therefore, a pattern that does this is not appropriate to recommend for historical recreation. Hopefully I will be provided with a more historically plausible pattern to post in the future.
