Kilts and cassocks
The attire of the day in the centre of Edinburgh today for the Pope's visit to Scotland - an outbreak of kilts with a good sprinkling of cassocks. These were the scenes on Princes Street at 8.30 a.m. as the crowds began to line the route of the Pope's arrival.

If you don't have a kilt, you drape a tartan rug over your shoulders.

The Pope joined in the tartan mood, wearing a tartan scarf around his shoulders. Today is St Ninian's Day, so a new tartan, St Ninian, was created for the Papal visit.
