Located in the city of Perth, Scotland, The Black Watch Castle & Museum is one of the top visitor attractions in Perthshire and includes our Café, the Museum Shop and the Regimental Museum.

The Black Watch Museum is housed in the dramatic and historic Balhousie Castle. The Castle is set in its own beautiful gardens and grounds. Scotland's Black Watch is an elite military regiment whose history stretches back almost three centuries. A visit to this ancestral home of The Black Watch brings this glorious Regiment's past vibrantly to life.

The Museum offers family trails and activities, as well as regular events for families. Alongside the offerings for both children and adults in the shop and café, The Black Watch Castle and Museum is the ideal place for a family day out!
