Both women and men have distinct style preferences;however, the women on the Isle of Arran are the true fashionistas. The local women understand how to properly morph casual wear into dress casual. All you need to complete this task is the right accessory or accent like a handbag or print scarf. Converse sneakers and rain boots could be replaced with a nice pair of gold thong sandals or high heeled leather boots.
The Brodick Highland Games is mostly a competive sports event that includes a caber toss. "Tossing the caber" is a sport where men pick up large logs and toss them across the field. The winner is determined based upon the farthest log thrown.
No person is immune to fashion faux pas. There have been quite a few questionable attire choices. Scotland may not be among the most fashion forward place to some people. Scotland definitely has its own unique flavor that any fashion guru can appreciate.
