    Now I know why It was illegal to wear Tartan….. I’d say bring that law back, except my hubby looks fab in his kilt. And you should see the size of his sporran (wink, nod)

  3. Tiffany says:

    They should’ve had one posing with the stone on her shoulder. 😉

    And um, women don’t wear balmorals…

    And what is the deal with those capes??? They could’ve at least tried a bit harder and donned a plaid. Except I’m pretty sure Scottish women didn’t wear them… but that’s not stopping these girls anyway, so whateva.

  4. LollyBlue says:

    Bad plaid…that’s about all I can add…heeheeeee

  5. redrocket says:

    I think the one on the bottom in front is kind of sexy. Even in the tartan!

    • One in Front says:

      Umm…thanks?? lol Your comments have all been a blast to read. My friends and I were shocked to see this photo on here, but loved remembering that day!

  6. Audrey says:

    Wee 3 lass’s of Scotland are, bearing plaids we traverse afar . . . there is like 6 kinds of plaid, I bet there’s not a bolt of the stuff left at Wal-Mart in the county where they live!

  7. ScoutC says:

    I’m hearing the sound track of “Brigadoon” ringing in my ears. “Go home, go home, go home with bonnie Jean…..”

  8. MacAdder says:

    That’s a heckuva lotta fabric. You could dress a lot of windows (or an entire cast of that Scottish play!)

  9. Erin says:

    Wow! I think these ladies look wonderful! The one in the front is kind of cute!

  10. Sara says:

    The Tartan Tarts, a bagpipe/claymore trio from Medina, Ohio, will be performing tonight at 8. Wear your clan plaid and get in free!

  11. dana says:

    PLAID IS A COLOR!!! ahhahaha

  12. JBoz says:

    I have a sudden hankerin’ for a big dish of Haggis – also known as the traditional Scottish meal of sheep’s organs minced with oatmeal, onion and suet, and then roasted in the stomach of the animal.

  14. 666 dimebag wife says:

    If it tain’t Scottish, it’s crap. Now put up yer dukes.

  15. Davey Crockett says:

    Do you have any leprechans?

    Any what?

    Any leprechans.

    Lass, leprechans are not from Scotland, their from IRELAND!! And if it’s not Scottish, it’s CRRRRRRAAAAAPPPPP!

  16. Stephanie says:

    That’s not a rock it’s a large potato.

  17. Deb says:

    Best caption on a photo EVER!

  18. JoAnne says:

    oh dear it’s Brigadoon :S

  19. Uncuw Biww says:

    I think i see these people with shields and big foamy swords at the park every tuesday night, re-enacting scenes from Braveheart…

  20. F'Amos says:

    Piper down! We have a piper down!

  21. Caivan says:

    members of Clan McMarney gather in their regulation tartans.

  22. Ginger says:

    I just have one question: What are they looking at?

  23. JerseyPam says:

    Scotch on the Rocks!

  24. marilee says:

    I thought it was a cast picture from Brigadoon.

  25. Chris says:

    Something tells me that door gets a lot of action. That rock has beaten up the wall.

  26. Carol Taylor says:

    oh i thought i saw loch ness , but it was that door handle ..
    the wee lassies look abit cross bred with all the tartans

  27. Mary says:

    “They can take our lives, but they can never take our awkwardness!”!

  28. Tara says:

    The rock and the door are crackin’ me up!

  29. Kit says:

    “I am Duncan MacLeod, born 400 years ago in the highlands of Scotland. I am Immortal, and I am not alone. For centuries we have waited for the time of the Gathering, when the stroke of a sword and the fall of a head will release the power of the Quickening. In the end, there can be only one.”

    • Silfax says:

      ” In the end, there can be only one.”

      I never thought that he was referring to tartans.

      One tartan to rule them all.

    • Tess says:

      Duncan, if forced to wear the Tartan of my husband’s Scotish clan, then a quick beheading would be merciful.

      P.S. Who said Scot’s have no sense of humor, they invented bagpipes and kilts… It’s just that it’s a private joke among kinsmen…

  30. Steve says:


    Seriously, no one said this yet?

    • scruffy says:

      Ach. It would have been, “Saoirse!!!” that they bellowed out, now. Highlanders not speakin English, like and saoirse being the Scots word for freedom.

      And dat snap is makin me granny roll over in er wee grave.

  31. Miss Jane says:

    The flowers shooting out of the side of mom’s head are killing me.

  32. Jon says:

    “Heeed! Pants! Nooow!”

  33. MarCharMom says:

    That’s a whole lot of differnt plaids going on…certainly not Scottish! Maybe they were trying to say “I’m a little of this and a little of that”? Nice rock!

  34. Shock says:

    Is it ironic that i watched Braveheart last night, or a sign i should never dress up like that?

    • Tiffany says:

      Not if you have *no clue* what you’re putting on. You might end up wearing Campbell (the tartan of the skirt the seated girl is wearing) with MacDonald.

      I went to an SCA event one time and half the people there had fake kilts and woad on their faces. It was close to the saddest thing I’ve ever seen.

  35. Amy says:

    My favorite color is plaid but this is taking it way too far. The rock holding the door is so funny. And that is a really big sword.

  36. billy says:

    “we’rrrrre frrrrrom scotland, wherrre girrrlz arrre not afrrraid to brrrrandish a long sworrrd. Hurrrrray forrr the scots and hurray forrr Lady Macbeth”

    note : i’m trying to translate in writing a poor imitation of the famous rolling scotish R pronunciation (like hollywood film do) this is not a pirrrrate joke

  37. Mary says:

    Ummm, aren’t their tartans supposed to match if they’re family?

  38. anonymous says:

    If my bagpipes were being held that way, I’d have a fit.

    Hell, if my bagpipe drones were tuned that LOW ……… Everyone would be running for the hills, rock on the door or no.

    That’s more tartan on 3 women than I’ve seen at whole Highland Games. And that Claymore … Oi.

  39. durhay says:

    bravehearts can’t be broken

  40. Glinda says:

    It’s stuff like this that makes me tell people I’m French.

  41. Sean says:

    Could ya crush a man with that rock? Y’know, when it matters?
    I could crush that door!

  42. Laurie says:

    BWAAAAAAAHAAAAAAHAAAAA! I have had photos taken at the woollen mill next to the Edinburgh Castle twice! Once with my cousin. He looked fantastic but when one of my aunts saw the picture (I was wearing the same dress as the girl that is holding the bagpipes) she said “Just say no to plaid, Laurie!” Most recently my husband and I went back there and had our picture taken. Again, plaid does me no favors but it was so much FUN!

    • dennylou says:

      I thought the one holding the bagpipes is a boy. My bad…thanks for clearing that up. Note to self…don’t visit the woolen mill in Edinburgh…ever…

  43. bunninose says:

    Clash of the Tartans!

  44. Maria says:

    I’m not sure that mixing that many tartans is allowed by the Scottish Tartan Society. *Awkard* indeed!

  45. JAY says:

    OMGosh, the door! That is so funny!

  46. CarrieM says:

    The definition of a gentleman: Someone who can play the bagpipes but chooses not to.

  47. Crankenpants says:

    The plaid! My eyes!

  48. carol says:

    These people are really confused about their clan! They have WAY too many tartans going on. Love the fake stream.

  49. BigM says:

    Obviously, there have been a LOT of “cross-clan” mingling of the genes.

  50. Somegirl says:

    Actually, this is the most ‘unathentic’ Scottish attire I’ve ever seen.
