This is an actual preserved foot of a Grouse, a popular game bird. These ‘feet’ were considered a lucky charm, especially good for successful hunts, but helpful in other every-day situations as well. They were worn by both men and women on kilts, shawls, sashes and cloaks and given as a sign of affection or worn as lucky charms.

This belonged to Marian Macmillan, known locally as ‘Lady Marian Macmillan’.
