Description:

The Black Watch Museum presents an in depth history of Scotland’s oldest Highlands Regiment in a manner that is interesting and informative. Lacking sufficient military forces, the Black Watch was formed from members of loyal clans in the wake of the 1715 Jacobite Uprising.

The name Black Watch refers both to the dark colors of their tartan and the role that they played at that time in

maintaining order and keeping on the watch for crime.

Collections:

  • Replica of a Black Watch soldier;
  • Medals awarded to soldiers;
  • Weapons, maps, pictures;
  • Personal objects;
  • Sculptures.
