The Black Watch Museum

The Black Watch Museum is housed in the dramatic and historic Balhousie Castle.

The Castle is set in its own beautiful gardens and grounds. A visit to this ancestral home of The Black Watch brings this glorious Regiment's past vibrantly to life.

The Museum

Uniforms, fine paintings, medals, photographs, diaries, weapons and military equipment, together with film and reminiscences bring to life the proud military heritage of this family regiment. The collection contains significant items that have been gathered by the Regiment throughout its history, right up to the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Our collections are unique and distinctive in their link to the history of the Black Watch. This policy describes how we actively develop our combined museum and archive collections, and ensures both acquisition and disposal are carried out openly and with transparency.
