Kinloch Anderson Kilt Hire continues the Company’s ideals of providing finest quality Scottish merchandise with professional advice and best service.  It is our priority to make sure that all Kinloch Anderson outfits reflect our best standards whether bought or hired and our Kilt Hire is frequently worn for very special occasions. 

Your kilt is the “jewel in the crown” of the outfit and will have been hand made in our factory in Edinburgh.  Kinloch Anderson pay every attention to detail in order to maintain our reputation for making the most outstanding kilts.  Every Kinloch Anderson kilt is made from at least 8 yards of pure wool / worsted tartan fabric woven in Britain.  Click here to see how to wear your Highland Dress outfit.

We offer both traditional and modern styles covering 9 tartans for the kilt and a choice of 4 jackets and waistcoats; in Black Barathea – Prince Charlie and Argyll and in Tweed our Charcoal Grey or our new Fen Green, and we have a large choice of accessories.  Furthermore you can mix and match your full hire outfit if you wish or hire individual items separately.  Our standard period for hire is 4 days.

In addition to supplying Kilt Hire for Weddings, Graduations and other events we can also supply Corporate and Group Kilt Hire for larger functions and conferences in and around the Edinburgh area, and, if you hire 5 full outfits the fifth is complementary.

If the tartan you would like to wear is not in our kilt hire range you can purchase a kilt in the tartan of your choice and we will provide the rest of your kilt hire outfit free of chargeThis then means that if at some later stage you want to own your complete Highland Dress outfit you can do so gradually, perhaps by suggesting an item as a birthday or Christmas gift or when your budget allows.
