    A short history of the Black Watch

    Published on Friday 12 August 2011 01:49

    The BLACK Watch Castle & Museum and Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust are pleased to announce the launch of the booklet, The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment): A short history of the Regiment in peace and war.

    This full-colour illustrated publication is a collaborative project between the two bodies and is part of the Heritage Trust’s wider series of publications on various aspects of archaeology and history in the area. The booklet contains a short history of The Black Watch, beautifully illustrated by paintings, photographs and objects from the Museum collections.

    David Strachan, from the Trust, said: “The Black Watch has played such an important role in the history of the area, it has been a privilege to see the story come alive through the fascinating objects and documents held at Balhousie castle.

    “Many people have Black Watch connections and I’m sure the booklet will have wide appeal both locally and further afield.”

    Emma Halford-Forbes, from The Black Watch Castle & Museum, said: “We’re so pleased to be able to produce this revised short history in partnership with the Trust.

    “They’re support of our work has been invaluable, and this project is a superb culmination our working together.

    “Our previous short history was desperately in need of updating and we hope that visitors and enthusiast alike will enjoy this new edition.”

    The booklet is on sale at The Castle & Museum, online through The Black Watch shop www.theblackwatch.co.uk, or at the Heritage Trust offices outside the AK Bell library.

    Hi Chuck,

    Where did this information come from?

    This was the booklet that was discussed on here back in June. I got my copy on 25 June 2011.

    Confused!
