The Highlanders Museum

The Highlanders Museum

Fort George, Ardersier, Inverness, Highland, IV2 7TD

An absolute treasure trove of medals, uniforms, arms, military paintings, diaries, letters and war memorabilia, the Highlanders Museum in ornate Fort George near Inverness is a fascinating way to explore the history of the Queen´s Own Highlanders, Seaforth Highlanders, The Queen´s Own Cameron Highlanders and Lovat Scouts. This collection is thought to be the largest regimental display outside London and holds more than 5,000 gallantry awards including 16 of the 22 Victoria Crosses awarded to the Highlanders. Look out for the set of colours that soldiers carried at the Battle of Waterloo, King Edward VIII’s regimental uniform and even, rather soberly, a personal papers box used by Hitler. The museum rather touchingly tells the tale of individual clansmen and their singular acts of bravery that have since gone down in Highlander legend, including Piper Kenneth Mackay who bravely ignored enemy fire to play his music to inspire the 79th Cameron Highlanders to victory.
