The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards
Welcome to the web pages of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards (SCOTS DG). We are Scotland’s most senior regiment and the country’s only regular cavalry.
LocationsThe Regiment’s Home Headquarters is in Edinburgh Castle. The Colonel of the Regiment and the Regimental Secretary have offices there. The Regimental Museum is also there, where the history of the Regiment is explained in a state-of-the-art exhibition high up in the Castle itself.
The serving Regiment is currently based in Bad Fallingbostel in the Lower Saxony region of Germany. They are based in Wessex barracks alongside other units from 7th Armoured Brigade – the Desert Rats.
Under the planned re-basing of units under Army 2020, SCOTS DG are due to move to RAF Leuchars, near St Andrews in Fife, in 2015. This will be the first time the Regiment has been home to Scotland for more than 40 years.
