  • Based in Edinburgh Castle this museum illustrates the history of Scotland's only cavalry regiment, it's certainly worth the time to look around this brilliant museum. 
  • The Museum is part of the Edinburgh Castle. Admission is included with the ticket for the Castle. Those who are interested in military history, could spend hours. A quick tour dates all the others. Very miss you not should the Museum but, the history and tradition of the unit is very clearly presented and well worth knowing.
