Description:

The Highlanders’ Museum is home to the largest number of military artefacts outside London. The Highlanders are the descendants of four famous Scottish Regiments originally raised from the Clans and communities of the Highlands and Islands in the late 1700’s. The Highlanders Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Scotland today incorporates the world-famous names of the Seaforth Highlanders, The Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders and the Queen’s Own Highlanders (Seaforth and Camerons). The Museum represents all these famous Regiments except for The Gordon Highlanders who have their own museum in Aberdeen.

The Museum tells the story of the Highland Regiments from just after the Battle of Culloden up to the present day.

The museum, located in the former Lieutenant Governor’s house in Fort George, includes works depicting military scenes by a variety of artists and covering the period from 1778 to the present day.
