Scotland in Peine, Germany

At the beginning of May, Amanda and I went to Scotland... well, Scotland in Peine, Germany.  Each year Peine has a Highland Gathering on the first two days in May. On Saturday one can go listen to Scottish music and on Sunday one can see the Highland Games.  We unfortunately only went on Saturday. The Kilt - Skirt Controversy Is it called a skirt or is it called a kilt?  Let's take a look, shall we?
