This mitre cap belonged to a grenadier officer captured on board the L'Esperance, we have no source that the grenadier officers wore them in action in Scotland
The Irish Picquets wore the normal French style coats until Culloden, there is little reason to think that the Ecossais would cut them down without need
We have some contemporary sources for blue bonnets worn by the Royal Ecossais officers. But are these for march or for battle too?
