Get a better look at Ron D. Moore's TV adaptation of Outlander, the time travel novel that sends a World War 2 nurse back to 18th century Scotland. There she discovers more gorgeous British men in kilts. Behold!
I'll admit to not knowing much about these books, and please forgive the pedantry, but I think the term "Scotsmen" would be better applied here. While Britain as a national entity got its real start with the establishment of the United Kingdom in the 18th century, and while it can certainly be argued that some Scots went on to greatly support the creation of what essentially became an Enlightenment nation, I think that your average Highland kilt-wearer still thought of himself as quite strongly Scots. Not to mention the fact that many were Jacobites, struggling under the English Protestant rule. Again, being pedantic. Sort of like referring to Newfoundlanders of the late 19th century as Canadians, or Californians of any century as Americans.
Did that last joke come off right? Or should I have picked on Texans? Rhode Islanders? Someone give me feedback — which state has the people who least identify themselves as Americans? Then, the next time this opportunity comes by, I can get the joke right.
