A DANCER for Taylor Swift has been praised after sporting a kilt and holding an “iconic” photo shoot outside Bute House.

Ahead of the pop star’s third and final show in Edinburgh on Sunday evening, dancer Kameron Saunders shared his latest purchase with followers on social media.

Pictures show Saunders sporting a red tartan kilt, waistcoat and a sporran while he poses on Charlotte Square in Edinburgh, just outside the First Minister’s official residence.

He said that he had always wanted to own a kilt but wanted to be “respectful” of Scottish culture.

“I’ve always wanted an authentic kilt but I wanted to be super respectful about the culture so prior to purchasing I had an extensive conversation with the salesman who educated me so very wonderfully about kilts, accessories, Scottish history, Scottish last names, tartans, the thistle, etc,” he said.

“He assured me that I could wear this outfit with pride. So that’s what I’m doing!

“See you out there for our last show tonight, Edinburgh!”

The pictures have received more than 130,000 likes and even attracted the attention of one Scottish celebrity.

On her Instagram page TV presenter Lorraine Kelly said she loved the photos so much they featured them on her ITV show.

"Hello Kamn Saunders - Lorraine here - we featured you on my UK show - Lorraine - this morning because you are fabulous and you rocked that kilt!
