Ryan Higgins (l), of Jamaica Plain, and Dennis Napier, of Norfolk, carry the Irish and Scottish flags during the first annual "Angry Scotsman" Kilt Crawl through Jamaica Plain, Sept. 13, 2014. Participants of the event, which benefited the Scots' Charitable Society and Charitable Irish Society, stopped at four local establishments; Eugene O'Neill's, James's Gate, Costello's, and The Haven.

On Saturday, the Angry Scotsman Kilt Crawl raised money — and maybe a few eyebrows — as kilted marchers made their way through JP, complete with bagpipe accompaniment.

You might've seen or heard the crawl as it made its way from Eugene O'Neill's to James's Gate to Costello's and ending (where else?) at The Haven. Each of the revelers raised money through pledges to the Scots Charitable Society and Charitable Irish Society. The effort raised more than $3,000, according to organizers.

Photographer Kate Flock graciously made the above gallery available to the press.

The crawl honored the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn, and comes just days before Scotland votes on whether to secede from Great Britain.
