Treasures from Scotland's oldest Highland regiment are housed in the dramatic and historic Balhousie Castle.

A visit to the ancestral home of the Black Watch brings this glorious regiment's past vibrantly to life through uniforms, paintings, medals, photographs, weapon and equipment.

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.
