Wear a kilt for the final night dance!

Many of the teams have said they are interested in wearing traditional Scottish Highland dress for the Scottish dance night (although you could wear it anytime..)

Here is some guidance of how to do it.

There are a couple of options available depending upon your budget:

Rent full Highland dress

Use this link to a kilt hire company that is only 11k away from the Clubhouse. They can provide a full range of kilts, fitting advice and even deliver it to the Club. Kilt Hire from £99.50 at House of Argyll

ckick here for the House of Argyll

Buy a ‘sports kilt’ (£30-40)

These are available on the internet in a variety of tartans. They are great for parties and rugby matches… A number if the more youthful members from some of the boats like this idea and aim to get matching tartans for their team. Just type ‘sports kilt’ into Google for examples of what is available.
