The Black Watch Castle and Museum

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

This is very much a family friendly museum where they run a whole host of entertaining and educational events; definitely a great venue for a family day out in Perth.

From the 1st April 2016 the opening hours are as follows:

Museum and Castle - 9.30am – 4.30pm

Café - 9.30am – 4.00pm
