Museum of The Royal Regiment of Scotland

The Museum was officially opened on 29 May 2014 and is currently co-located with The Royal Scots Museum in historic Edinburgh Castle. This means that the story of the oldest regiment in the British Army, The Royal Scots (The Royal Regiment), sits alongside the story of the youngest Scottish regiment, The Royal Regiment of Scotland, under one roof. The Museum exists to preserve, and make accessible, the story of The Royal Regiment of Scotland.
