    You may be right about the sword. I thought he has his left hand on a dirk, still in its scabbard on the belt, but of course the dirk is normally worn on the right.

    That "sash" is puzzling.

    For one thing, it doesn't wrap all the way around, you can see that it ends just a bit past his shoulder on his back. It's just draped over his shoulder, and if he were to walk around it would fall off.

    The other thing is that it appears to have pieces of matching red cloth sewn to it at various points. Bits of ribbon? Who can say.

    I'm at a loss as to what it is, but for sure it's not anything normally seen with Highland Dress.

    I thought he was holding a dirk too but then I noticed he does have a dirk hanging down near his sporran.
