What does a Scotsman wear beneath his kilt?

I am sure that all of us Scotsmen who wear a kilt are continuously asked this question. "What does a Scotsman wear below his kilt?"This I think should remain a mystery and adds to the mystique of the Highland dress. The relevance of this particular blog arose from an incident at the Glenfinnan Games last Saturday. We had many visitors from all over the world at the Clan Cameron Association stall including a young couple from Nice. Among the items for sale at our stall, was a lady's kilt in the Cameron of Erracht tartan. The young lady tried it on and looked stunning in her Cameron kilt. She did however put it over her jeans and continued to wear it thus throughout the day. We know therefore what a French lady wears under her kilt but the riddle of the Scotsman and his kilt must remain a mystery.
