Although flat Horns were carried in Eur & Amer (non Scots) This genre of Horn was carried most often by Scots, Not only in Scotland, every were they were incl. America.& hence has become "associated" with them.

Here iare pics of one made for a Gift by our "BEAVERMAN" & his partner



If this type of horn interests you, I have some pics of others (incl. orinals & sources

That's a nice horn, Puffer. Thanks for posting.

I'll bet those flat horns are very comfortable to carry.

I love my Scottish powder horn! They are an awesome style and truly unique. Took me years to finally find one here on the west coast.

Beyond hunting, as I am the officer of our small Jacobite 1745 reenactment group I get to carry mine at events.

Mad Piper used to make them until his health went bad. Know of any one making them now?

Captain, As I mentioned above, "BEAVERMAN" ( our forum member #51) made mine & He is also the "owner" of this other Forum on Horn Making ( there are a couple of great makers of "Flat Horns there )
