After the Scottish Jacobite Rebellion failed, a law as passed in 1746 making it illegal for Highlanders to own or possess arms. In 1747 the Act of Proscription restricted the wearing of any form Plaid, Philbeag, Belted Plaid, Shoulder Belt or Kilt in public. Punishment for first offense was a six month imprisonment, second offense earned the wearer a seven year exile to an overseas work farm. The Bagpipes were also outlawed, considered an instrument of war. Only individuals in the Army were permitted to wear the Plaid. Consequently, many Highlanders enlisted enabling them to wear their more comfortable, traditional clothing.
The Act of Proscription was repealed in 1783, but it had succeeded in changing Highland Society. Many of the traditions and customs had been lost forever, wearing the Kilt was no longer considered a way of life for Scottish Highlanders.
With the growing feeling of Nationalism in Scotland, the Kilt is being worn more often than in the last 100 years. Many Scotsmen are rediscovering their roots and beginning to show great interest in reviving some of the old traditions and customs of the Highlanders. The Tartan Kilt is probably the most World-wide identifiable garment worn by any one group of individuals.
