The 9th (Glasgow Highlanders) Battalion HLI, were the only unit [erratum - so did the 6th - see post below] of that battalion to wear the kilt during WW1. Dressed similarly to the Black Watch, even down to the badge, they nevertheless wore the HLI style shoulder titles.

Neither the sporran nor the shape of the cap badge in subject photo looks right for 9th HLI.
