Yes, I wear the kilt as my dress Scout Uniform - Scout Shirt, Group
Neckerchief, Scout belt - with Kilt, plain leather sporran, lovat green
hose (knee high socks), green tabs and black shoes.
It is written in our POR (Policy Organisation & Rules) that a kilt can
be worn by those who have entitlement. You are obviously of Scots
ancestry and would be allowed, and expected to wear McLeod tartan. Many
of our Scouts have to borrow kilts so the tartan is sometimes not of
their family. I wear the McRae tatan but sometimes the Royal Stewart
tartan as our District contains the Stewart Royal Palace of Falkland.
We attend many International camps and ALWAYS wear the kilt!!!!!
Yours aye in Scouting
