The Black Watch Regimental Museum is housed in historic Balhousie Castle set in its own grounds beside the North Inch inPerth.

A weapon is the most fundamental item of a soldier's equipment. Examples in the Museum show how these have developed from sharp edged implements through muzzle loading firearms to rapid fire machine guns. They continue to develop - and for modern weapons used by to-day's Black Watch soldiers look at the web pages of the regular Battalion.

A wide range of uniform items are on display in the Museum. Although few of these survive from the earliest days of the Regiment, there is such continuity in the form of Highland dress worn by The Black Watch that a fair appreciation of the uniform of that period can be gained from studying items of later date. The most distinctive features of the uniform have been the headdress, the kilt and the sporran.
