Black Watch Tour Scotland

Saturday, May 03, 2008

This evening I am presenting a couple of images relating to the famous Black Watch regiment. This regiment was inspired by General Wade who, in 1725, recommended that six companies of Highlanders be raised by their clan chiefs to provide a militarised police force or Watch. The Black Watch was raised in a field near to Aberfeldy in Perthshire and went on to develop into one of Scotland's leading regiments. There is a museum dedicated to the Black Watch in Perth.

Here is an image of a memorial to the Black Watch which is located just north of the city of Dundee.

Here is an image of the memorial raised in honour of the Black Watch and located on the banks of the River Tay in Aberfeldy. In the background can be seen General Wade's military bridge which is still in use today and a great testament to the military engineers of the 18th century.

These images were taken in context of recent personalized tour with an underlying Black Watch theme.
