This place is tucked in a corner of Edinburgh Castle! Fantastic exhibits and a good little video to watch! The pieces are in great condition and are accompanied by lots of information!

Plenty to see in here with loads of exhibits.

Some excellent informative panels throughout.

From the exhibits and background historical info you really picked up on how the military forms part of the Scottish identity.

Well worth some of your time

Lots of art, armor and armament well displayed to walk you through the military history of Scotland...emphasis is on service to King and Country.

When you are visiting the Edinburgh Castle, make sure that you also reserve some times to visit this National War Museum of Scotland. All the stories of the brave Scottish heroes are told here .......
