A Younger Generation


A true passion for kiltmaking lasts a lifetime.

Our kilt-making apprentice, Sarah currently works at our Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers hire store.


Sarah found kilt making by following in her family footsteps. Her granny, Irene, was a very talented kiltmaker who was brought up in Edinburgh before moving to Montrose.


She trained to be a kiltmaker at MacPhersons of Haymarket. She worked as a kiltmaker for many years before retiring and handing the mantle to her granddaughter.


Thank you to all kiltmakers, like Irene, for inspiring the next generation and preserving Scottish heritage.
