The Black Watch Castle and Museum has a large collection of different items, which bring to life the proud military history of this regiment.
The castle itself is several hundred years old and is set in beautiful gardens and grounds, which you can wander around and enjoy.
There is a temporary exhibition gallery that gives you the chance to learn about different aspects of regimental history, a semi permanent exhibition that highlights the lives of the men in the Watch through personal collections and a number of galleries that lead you through the story of the Black Watch through six historical periods, including French Wars and both World Wars.
You can find out about key icons of the Watch such as the Tartan and the Badge, plus there are significant items that have been collected by the Regiment throughout history, including the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
You allow at least two hours, if not more, to explore this place and see the uniforms, medals, photographs, weapons, diaries and many more items in the collections and exhibitions.
