Kilts and Tartan Made EasyScotweb’s MD, Dr Nicholas J Fiddes, has written a free illustrated e-book, as a gift to help kilt lovers everywhere. In simple non-technical language it covers every aspect of buying a kilt, choosing your tartan, and accessorising an outfit for every occasion.

As a Governor of the Scottish Tartans Authority, and founder of the world’s first company to market kilts on the Internet (yes, Scotweb) no one is better qualified to offer such advice. Impartial and objective, this is a personal work and is not a Scotweb publication.

Wrote... recieved my sash in Colquhoun Tartan.


Wrote... Thank You! I received my formal length Dress Gordon Tartan hostess skirt by Balmoral, and I am more than pleased. I ordered a lighter weight wool Tartan because I would only be wearing it to a "Burns" dinner or a Piping event, and it just flows perfectly! The quality is as expected. I will certainly recommend your website to others. Did I mention I am a "Piper in Progress?" I've been taking Bagpipe lessons for 4 years now, and can play 5 songs. Thanks for all you offer.

Wrote... I am very please with the fit and over all quality of my Hostess Skirt by Balmoral. The pleats are perfect, you can tell that quality and care went into the creation of my kilt was done with great detail. The leather straps on the sides are well made with quality medal fasteners leaving room for waist expansion. It comes with a sliver kilt pin which I did not expect, and appreciated. The colour of the tartan I choose is rich and muted, a very even weave. I will wear my kilt for yeas to come with great pride, my mom would be proud it is her tartan. I am grateful for the care that your staff took into producing my hostess skit. Once I purchase my brooch to complete the out fit I will submit a photo. Thank you. Rose Bedard North Bay ON Canada

Wrote... I have to congratulate Scotweb (and Fiona on sales) on the professionalism and quality of service. This was a 'rush' order at short notice. Early problems with sizing were ironed out quickly and the order completed and delivered 48 hrs earlier that the due date. Well and worthily recommended!!
