This was taken at the local Highlands Festival a few years ago. A good time was had by all, including me. A lot to see and such friendly people.

THAT was for your benefit, sir! I was hoping it would stir your juices! Top O' the mornin' to you, kind sir. You would have enjoyed these festivities so much. They all took it very seriously and got into the character, every one of them. You'd would talk to them and they all would respond in very authentic Scottish brogue. All had their traditional daggers in there socks. ( I can't remember what they're called..... the dagger or the socks!) So authentic, with traditional music from on-site bands.... and entire families were dressed in the appropriate garb. Such Scottish fun in of all places, Boise, Idaho.

And how would one go about phonetically pronouncing that "sgian dubh" word? I'm assuming that's the dagger, right? Not the stockings.... right?

Maybe something like "gain dub"? Gahn Duh?

Pronounced something close to “skin due” and yes it’s the small blade, a socks a sock.
