One of the odder traditions of Scotland. In the Victorian period men would pin grouse claws to their kilts for good luck during hunting trips. Over time they became more embellished, gaining gemstones and decorative silverwork gaining widespread appeal as a fashion item. Known as a ‘ptarmigan’, they also became love tokens for lovers apart.
