The Black Watch Castle & Museum
PERTH, PERTH & KINROSS
The Black Watch Castle and Museum is housed in the dramatic and historic Balhousie Castle. The castle is set in its own beautiful gardens and grounds, and is ideally situated close to the centre of Perth, beside the pleasant parkland walks of the North Inch on the banks of the River Tay. This unique and special collection explores two and a half centuries of Scotland's oldest Highland Regiment. Uniforms, fine paintings, medals, photographs, weapons and military equipment, linked to film, reminiscences and dioramas, bring to life the proud military heritage of this family Regiment.
