A group of barmen have stopped wearing kilts because they claim women wouldnâ€™t stop groping them while they worked.
Staff at the Hootananny in Inverness wore the traditional Scottish tartan to donate the venue even more of an authentic feel.
But they are complaining that female revellers are constantly lifting up the kilts to see if they were naked underneath.
Some claim they were even groped on their penis.
Iain Howie, the pubâ€™s assistant manager, said the incidents mostly happened during busy weekends.
He told the Inverness Courier: â€You obtain large groups of drinking women circling around when you are collecting glasses & asking whether you are true Scotsman â€“ & they find out for themselves.
â€œThe first few times it is funny. But when it is really busy & everyone has to work swift & hard, & your hands are full of glasses, you feel quite vulnerable.â€
Hootananny owner Kit Fraser said the groping was â€œpure sexismâ€.
He added: â€œCan you imagine if I went into a restaurant & stuck my hand up a girlâ€™s skirt?
â€œI would be taken to the police station & rightly so.
“I look after my customers yet equally significant are my staff.
â€œI am not forcing them to do something they donâ€™t want to do.â€
A Scottish Government spokesperson said that staff â€œshould have the right to work without fear of harassmentâ€, adding: â€œIt is significant management in all working environments do what they can to ensure this happens.â€
