Just in case anyone looks at a photo of a painting or sculpture and thinks it's a medieval Scotsman wearing a kilt:

Look at the whole garment, not just the hemline.

Scottish people, like many people in many places at many times, often wore a dress (usually with other clothing due to the temperature in Scotland). It might look like a kilt, but it isn`t.

Cue people raging because I called it a dress. It`s a dress. Don`t make the mistake of applying modern gendered dress codes to the past - dresses were not always feminine.

If by "quite recent" you mean 400+ years ago, I will agree.


They're 17th century, so not over 400 years.

That is quite recent given that they`re so often depicted as medieval or even earlier. 400 years ago is quite recent on the scale of British history.

"when in fact they're quite recent"

If by "quite recent" you mean 400+ years ago, I will agree. If not... d`oh! Think again.

You must be Irish, 'cause only the Irish keep pushing that old lie.


Nah, a lot of people from other countries believe it. Like a lot of people believe that kilts are ancient when in fact they`re quite recent. There`s a lot of misinformation about Scottish and Irish history stemming from nationalism. Some people even think that Braveheart is a history rather than a collection of lies to promote and profit from nationalist prejudices.
