Not Really Into Halloween

Today is Halloween. I can't say that I am to much into this holiday for religious reasons. I can go into all of that, but if you really want to know, you can read my latest article on my website for that.

Happy Commit Spiritual Adultery Against Christ & Whore Yourself Out With Satan Day - READ MORE >>>

I do hope that the men out there take the time to wear their kilts today. Heck any day in wearing your kilt is a good day in deed.

A fellow kilt wearer that is on my REAL MEN WEAR KILTS Facebook page mentioned that he wore his Great Kilt today and beat his boss in best costume.

His boss was all decked out in leather biker garb. He won in his Kilt.

It just goes to show you that a man in a kilt will always convey confidence and manliness even at some of the ideas (man in leather) that have typically stood for manhood.

Guys, want to impress, stop all this wimpy wanna-be stuff. Highland up and put on a kilt.

Real Men Wear Kilts.

Kilt On!

Discovering Cool Music

There is a lot of great music that is Celtic in nature and also Scottish. I found a GREAT playlist today on You Tube with modern pipe and drum.

Bands like Clanadonia, Alabannach, and other great non typical bands. I guess I like this sort of raw music and it is very enjoyable. 

Clanadonia - Egyptian 


Albannach - The Fire and Thunder of Scotland

Here is a link to a great play list with many of these bands as well as Irish reels and pub music. You can turn this on and just let it play. It has several hours of really good music.

BUT be warned, if ye not got any Scot blood in ye, it will probably sound like a bunch o' noise after a while. If you find yourself tapping ye toe a bit, then there is hope for ye.

Me Facebook Page - Real Men Wear Kilts

Morn'n to ya all.

Seeing this is a somewhat new blog, I wanted to share a bit more about myself, my love for everything Scottish and my ancestry. Not all at once mind you.

As I have mentioned. I have loved kilts, pipes and Scottish stuff ever since I was a wee lad. I remember one day when my mom was telling me about my history and let it be known we have Celtic blood running through our veins. It was a pretty cool day.

I remember we used to have a set of Encyclopedia Britannica and I loved reading those. I dug out the "S" and started looking up Scotland and reading all about the highlands, pipes, kilts, castles, etc. Really great stuff and that is where my love for Scotland started.   

Fast forward to today and now that I am older, I have the time to indulge in my Scottish love and do some of those cool things that I have always dreamed of.

For example, I enjoy weapons, in fact blades in particular. I am one who believes in "he who has the most blades when he dies, wins." So you can imagine all the knives, swords and other sharp pointy things I have laying around the house. Nice thing is that I have a wife who also appreciates my never ending habit and lets me put my nicer blades out for display.

Another thing that I have been able to indulge is kilts. I do not own many right now, at the present I only own five. Three utility kilts and two tartans. But like my blades, that collection is starting to grow as well.

Once I have more posts here, what I will do is review my kilts and give my insight. (I love my UT Kilts)

But what I wanted to share is my Facebook page - Real Men Wear Kilts - This is growing like mad and with the popularity of the show and book series Outlander growing, more and more people are finding my page and joining on.

You can check out the page here --

 We have a great group of people and yes women are allowed to join to. Come check it out and join the rabble of folks. We have a good time sharing everything Kilts - Outlander - Scottish (KOS)

Hope to see ya there.

Welcome To Real Men Wear Kilts

Hello All

Welcome to my little space on the web where I get to talk about Kilts, Outlander, Scotland and just about every thing Celtic.

Ever since I was a boy I have always loved Scotland / Ireland and all things Celtic. To this day when I hear "Scotland The Brave" or "Amazing Grace" played on the pipes, a pride rises up inside me.

All through my childhood I watched every movie I could about Scotland and then the epic classic came out - BRAVEHEART. Yep, talk about the Scottish movie of all movies.

To this day I still remember the famous speech - "They may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom!  - ALBA GU BRA!" (Scotland Forever in Gaelic)

On my mother's side is where I get my Scottish / Irish. She is a Moore and we come from descendants of Scots who fled Scotland to Ireland because they wanted freedom of worship. During the late 1700s there was persecution taking place against Presbyterians, back then they were referred to as Covenanters.
The Covenanters were a Scottish Presbyterian movement that played an important part in the history of Scotland, and to a lesser extent that of England and Ireland, during the 17th century. Presbyterian denominations tracing their history to the Covenanters and often incorporating the name continue the ideas and traditions in Scotland and internationally.

My Muir (Moore) ancestors arrived in America in the mid 1700 via Ireland after fleeing Scotland.
