The Museum tells the history of the Regiment from its early formation as the 91st Argyllshire Highlanders and 93rd Sutherland Highlanders to the present day. It holds objects relating to the regimental history, and archives which trace the history of the regiment and those who served. The Regiment has served in all the major conflicts from the Napoleonic and Crimea wars, where it earned the name Thin Red Line at the battle of Balaclava, and subsequent Indian Mutiny. At the turn of the century it was involved in the Boer wars and served with distinction in both World Wars. In the last half of the 20th century the regiment found itself in Korea, Crater and Northern Ireland. The 21st century has seen the jocks continue to serve as the world's policeman in the middle east, Iraq and Afganistan.

  • Bit annoyed because no forewarning that museum was shut for revamp. Still had to pay full price for entry. Main reason I visited was to see the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Museum...was my late fathers regiment during ww11. Rest of Castle was good particularly for those with children.
  • I have nothing but admiration for the highlanders. The men I met today at the museum were tried and tested men of all ages, hard men who gave themselves to their country. What an absolute service they've given to Scotland and beyond. I've been trying to track down the service records of my grandfather without any luck. I'll be honest and say I'm closer today than I was yesterday but only in inches. Today I moved forward by inches with meters to go. Thank you to the men I spoke to today at the museum who gave me some real honest insight to past and present conflicts.
