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.
