What deposit do you require for a Kilt Hire?
When you book your kilt hire we will need a £40 deposit. You can just pay the balance when you collect it. However for wedding parties we ask that the balance be paid up 4 weeks in advance of the pick-up date.

What do I do if I don’t have a Credit Card?
Someone else can leave their card information for you. You can pay our security deposit of £500 per outfit which will be returned to you when the outfit is returned.
How far in advance do I need to book?
For hires during peak wedding season (April-September) we would advise to book and measure 12 weeks in advance. You can come in again for measurements 3 weeks before the event. Outwith peak wedding season, we are not as busy and can accept hires closer to the dates they are required. However, the sooner you can let us know the better! We can even do last minute hires up to and including the day you need your highlandwear, though please be warned our selection may be limited and there will be an extra 'last minute fee' charged.
Do I need an appointment to hire a kilt?
No, you do not need an appointment to hire a kilt. We work on a first come first served basis, you can go into one of our stores and a member of our team will help you with everything. You may not get to try on your exact chosen outfit at this fitting; it will be a sizing kilt with the correct jacket. For wedding parties with over 5 people looking to get measured, please phone one of our stores beforehand.
Can I book my hire online?
You certainly can! You have the option of either hiring in store or online. Click here to get started with your online hire.
How long can I hire a kilt for?
Our normal kilt hire time period is usually for 4 days. This is because we need to ensure we have enough time for the items to be cleaned and checked before being sent back out for hire again, which is especially important during our busy periods.
Do you offer hires for an extended period?
Yes, we can do this for you if needed. It would be an additional 10% per day after the standard 4 day hire. You can speak to a member of our sales staff who would give you more information on the cost of this.
What ages do hire outfits start from?
Our hire outfits start from the age of 2, from £59. You can book your hire online or in store, just click here to start your search.
Can you hire specific items such as a kilt jacket and waistcoat or certain accessories as opposed to a whole outfit?
Yes, we offer full hires as well as part hires. If you just need a sporran, for example, we can sort that for you. Everything that we have in our kilt hire packages you can hire on its own as well.

What is a plaid?
A plaid is a length of tartan cloth (the same tartan as your kilt) and normally worn over the left shoulder, attached with safety pins which are hidden and a plaid brooch which is added for decoration. Have a look at our plaids here.
Can you carry out kilt alterations?
Yes, we have our own kiltmakers so we can offer two types of alteration depending on your needs. One option is to reposition the buckles of the kilt, this costs around £20. The other option is to have the kilt fully re-made which costs around £249. The option available to you will depend on the type of kilt and the adjustment required. Not all kilts can be altered so we would need to have a look at the kilt to determine the best action.
What material are kilts made from?
Our kilts use 100% worsted wool and come in 13oz (mediumweight) or 16oz (heavyweight) depending on the tartan selected.
What’s the difference between Medium (13oz) and Heavy (16oz) Kilts?
Thicker wool is used to weave the 16oz kilt, therefore making it slightly heavier (and warmer). The 13oz kilt uses a thinner wool, thus giving it a slightly finer appearance. To use modern terms you could possibly describe it as an HD kilt. Both kilts sit equally well. Some might say that the pleats are slightly 'crisper' on the 13oz kilt but this is a matter of opinion.
How do I clean my kilt?
If your kilt just needs a freshen up then using a fabric freshener spray along with a steam with the iron will suffice. If there are any stains on the kilt then dry cleaning would be the best option. Kilts should not be put in the washing machine.
How long does it take to make a Kilt?
We generally advise customers to allow for an 8 week making time, this is due to the large number of Kilts that are waiting to be made. They can on some occasions be turned around very quickly, and on other occasions we may need to wait until a specific tartan is available in stock.
What type of outfit should I wear?
Our Prince Charlie Outfit is a great traditional outfit for formal events such as weddings. The Argyll and Glen Orchy Outfits are more modern and perfect for black tie events but also popular at weddings. The Ghillie Shirt Outfit is more casual but commonly worn by gents getting married in hot climates as it is much cooler than a jacket and waistcoat. Click here to look at our full range of outfits available.
What do your Kilt Packages consist of?
The Full Kilt Package includes; kilt, jacket and waistcoat, sporran and chain strap, socks, shoes, flashes, sgian dubh and kiltpin. It includes everything you need apart from a shirt and tie.
