Can anyone identify this uniform please. The photo was taken in Edinburgh. It might aid the identification of the soldier.

An educated guess from the uniform would be The Scottish Horse, went on to become the Black Watch I think. he is definately scots, the riding crop spurs and cartridge cross belt say mounted the lanyard probably had a jackknife with the tool for getting stones out of horses hooves.
