  • The identification of a people with their country and their history can be seen by the presence of these museums, dedicated to institutions that have made it big in time. This is dedicated to the Argyll Regiment and commemorates war shipments from its creation to the world wars through the exhibition of historical relics and simple objects belonging to the soldiers of the various eras. The visit is quite interesting due to the abundance of material and to photos, letters and stories that accompany it. Located within Stirling Castle and does not require any entrance fees. Highly recommended for lovers of military memorabilia, but not only.

  • As you come to the castle, this monument is hard to miss. It gives you another facet of the Scottish national values and character. 
  • Plenty to see form the early years of the two independent regiments to the combined A&S highlanders through various combat duties

  • 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
