Anyways, know what, we think the number of tourists in Scotland will rise to the stratosphere if their tourist bureau will feature a kilt-wearing Ewan McGregor in their advertising campaigns. You agree right? Of course, you should! After all, Scotland isn’t all about Nessie, JK Rowling, castles with ghosts, and guys dressed as Barbie.

Hmmm. Is the next photo below of a shirtless Ewan in kilt real or a photoshopped image?

Let us continue our list of famous Scottish men wearing kilts with top tennis player Andy Murray and his brother Jamie. The two wore kilts during Jamie’s wedding where his more famous brother served as Best Man.

In an interview with Jonathan Ross, Andy revealed that they wore underwear underneath them kilts. Says Andy: “I did wear pants, my brother told me to. I didn’t want to wear anything because it’s tradition. But I suppose it was pretty cold that day.”

Celebrities of Scottish descent love them their kilts too! Cases in point: Scots-Canadian pro-wrestler Roddy Piper…

…and S*x and the City star Kyle MacLachlan.

Billy Boyd is looking cool in his kilt, no? If he wore a kilt in Lord of the Rings, we’d have no trouble telling him apart from that other hobbit and we wouldn’t spend a lot of time wondering whether he’s Merry or he’s Pippin.

On the other hand, we’d always recognize James McAvoy in whatever role he’s in.

The same may be said for the most famous Scotsman of all, Sean “James Bond” Connery!

Hey look, our hot gay boyfriend John Barrowman looks great in his kilt. Wowza!

So does Dr. Who star David Tennant.

What’s the “let’s pose under the bridge” about? He’s reportedly promoting a website called which seeks to bridge the gap between Scottish expats and their homeland. Very literal but kind of cute, no?
