    Guilty!

    I took these photographs last year when visiting Craigievar Castle, near Alford in Aberdeenshire.

    At the end of the gallery on the top floor was this early 19 Century kilt and doublet in Forbes tartan that had belonged to the piper. The round buttons appear to be silver.

    The kilt was box pleated. The second picture shows the first pleat on the left of the kilt, the plaid behind it and the cuff detail on the left sleeve.

    The original thread is on X Marks.

    That's awesome. I'm glad I have a box pleated kilt. So far it's my favorite.

    It's a Highland Revival Outfit c1815 (the jacket cut & steel buttons date it well). Forbes/Lamont tartan (known by both names at that time) by Wilsons of Bannockburn. This setting looks to be what we would now call Forbes (K guards to the W).
