Argyll Sutherland Highlanders Regimental Museum, Stirling

4.2
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.

  • Unfortunately, this is one of the places where we got the truck (we were visiting separately). Exhibition of military and history. A lot of the exhibits. A must when visiting the Castle. One of the better equipped museums which we toured.

  • You must visit inside the Castle. Volunteers are very welcome and very detailed exposure. When we were part of its history back to the 1st GM it was reform and we could not see it.

  • Interesting and fantastic place with loads of history This is a fantastic museum to view and will give you a good overview of the Argyll Sutherland Highlanders and their history. Wonderfully laid out, with lots of interesting facts and even more to see. If you are in Stirling and looking at Stirling Castle you should spare some time to visit this as well.
  • A very interesting military museum telling the history of one of Scotland most famous regiments. Free entry but donations welcome.
  • As a veteran of the Crimean War (Russian) i was shocked and dismayed to see the level of bias on the British side in this museum. How do you expect children today to learn history as it was when this is the one sided drivel that is put on display? I shall return to my home in the urals and notify all other living crimean veterans not to waste their time travelling all this way
