Barmen in Scotland have ditched the traditional kilt after being harassed on several occasions by woman checking if they were “true Scotsmen” by lifting up the kilts, reported the Telegraph.

"You get large groups of drinking women circling around when you are collecting glasses and asking whether you are true Scotsman - and they find out for themselves," said Iain Howie, Hootananny pub’s assistant manager.

"The first few times, it is funny. But when it is really busy and everyone has to work fast and hard, and your hands are full of glasses, you feel quite vulnerable," he added.

A Scottish Government spokesman said: "Everybody in Scotland should have the right to work without fear of harassment and it is important management in all working environments do what they can to ensure this happens."
