Jacobite and Redcoats: The Battle for the Highlands @ The Black Watch Castle & Museum

Travel back in time to the 18th century and discover the origins of Scotland’s oldest Highland Regiment, The Black Watch. Meet courageous Jacobites and stern government redcoats as they fight for control of the Highlands.

Dress up in soldier’s uniforms, find out how to fire a musket, wield a broadsword and take part in a heroic Highland charge. Get creative by making your own musket, basket-hilted broadsword and shield. Afterwards explore the galleries with our adventurous Highlander trail and get hands on with some fascinating artefacts from the Museum’s unique collections.
