The lèine bhàn, literally meaning White Shirt (in Scottish Gaelic), was a distinctive smock which trangressors of ecclesiastical law, in Scotland, were at one time obliged to wear in church during public worship on one or more Sundays – also called gùn odhar (dun gown), and gùn na h-eaglaise (church gown).
