Do you know that… The word “clan” means “family” and the great clans were really like big families, ruled by powerful chiefs. Many people in Scotland have the name McDonald or McKenzie. “Mac” means “son of” and people with this name usually feel they belong to the same family or clan. The national dress of Scots is the kilt, which was originally worn by men.
Tartan The wearing of tartans (coloured checks) is traditional in Scotland. Originally, the tartan was worn as a long piece of cloth thrown over the shoulders.
The Pipes The Scottish musical instrument is the pipes or bagpipes.
