Our kilt is the world champ.

SCOTS weavers are claiming to have made the world's biggest kilt.

The garment, made from nine yards of cloth, is 80 inches round the waist, weighs 45 pounds and easily wraps round the three women who made it at the Keith Kilt School.

The Hunting Gordon tartan kilt will be 'worn' by a giant Highlander, created from old whisky barrels, at the entrance to a coopers' workshop in Craigellachie, Moray.

Linda Gorn, a director of the Kilt School, said: "No corners have been cut because it is to be used for a barrel-man."
