Dancing was engaged in around the bonfire to the skirl of the philabeg.
On this occasion, he wore a short coat, philabeg and purse, and tartan hose.
So called because he wore the kilt, in its original form, not the philabeg.
The huts were after the Highland fashion, and the boys who were playing wore the Highland dress and philabeg.
Where were we before launching forth into such a chequered digression on the lad wi the philabeg?
