The Highlanders' Museum opened to the public on 29th March 2013 after a closed period of 18 months for a major refit and updated interpretation of the collection. The refurbishment included heating, lighting, display cases and relocation of certain facilities.
The main collection has been laid out with a modern interpretation to improve the education and learning for future generations. The story includes the heritage and history of Seaforth Highlanders, Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders, Queen's Own Highlanders, Lovat Scouts, Volunteers and Militias'.
The museum is located inside Fort George on the beautiful Moray Firth coastline, 12 miles east of Inverness, which offers superb views across the Black Isle. The firth is also home to schools of dolphins and has a variety of bird life all year round.
The staff would be delighted to welcome you to the new experience. The shop will be open and selling a new range, including books, regimental items, clothes, Scottish goods, children's items, prints and really something for both the local and foreign visitors.
We also offer a "Research" facility in the Learning Centre for those wishing to carry out family historical research.
