The Scottish regiment are known as the Lowland regiments and the Highland regiments. The first Lowland regiment, The Royal Scots, dates from 1633. The original Highland regiments were raised in the 18th cent. and recruited solely from the Scottish Highlands. Tartan was a kind of woollen cloth woven in stripes of various colours crossing at right angles so as to form a regular pattern. It was worn especially be the Scottish Highlanders, each clan having a distinctive pattern. This tartan was used to make clothing like kilts and plaids. After the rising of 1745, both the belted plaid and the kilt were worn by the Highland Regiments. Originally the kilt was worn in undress order only but soon the belted plaid was deemed too cumbersome for combat and abandoned altogether.

The Act of 1746 made the wearing of and form of Highland Dress illegal for all but soldiers in Highland regiments. The repeal of 1782 re-instated Highland Dress and it soon became all the rage with all classes of society.

This set of 4 Scottish figures, each measuring 4cm tall, are made from lead-free pewter. The box is full colour with images on the front and back and has historical information on the reverse and inside flap.
