The kilt category consists of images of traditional Scottish kilts as might be seen at Highland Games gatherings in Scotland or elsewhere around the world, or of people wearing such kilts.

Such a kilt, in its modern version, has the overall structure of a wrap-around skirt with overlapping front aprons and pleats around the rest of the circumference of the garment. These kilts are almost always made out of twill woven worsted wool and, with rare exceptions, they exhibit a symmetric tartan pattern (plaid) which is either registered with some organization such as the Scottish Tartans Authority or otherwise recognized as a clan tartan by official Scottish clans.

Also included are:

  1. images of those historical kilt-like garments from which the modern-day Scottish kilt was directly derived (for example, the Great kilt or belted plaid, and the philabeg, as well as other historical Scottish kilts or modern-day reproductions of such historical garments); and
  2. images of kilts or kilt-like garments traditional to other Celtic cultures, such as the Irish kilt.
