We are a light role Infantry Battalion. We carry all the latest equipment we require in order to fight and survive. To do this we must be both mentally and physically robust, capable of enduring and overcoming the demands of this role, whilst at all times performing to the highest standards.
The Battalion's Headquarters are in Glasgow and there are Infantry companies in Ayr, Edinburgh and Glasgow with platoon detachments in Bathgate, Dumfries, Galashiels and Motherwell.
For most of us, the Army Reserve is a second job. However we have soldiers serving on operations with our paired Regular Battalion (2 SCOTS), performing our roles as effectively as our regular soldiers. We are resourced and equipped to the same levels as the rest of the Army and are trained to the same standards.
Recently we have conducted training exercises in Italy, EX Roman Star, and Kenya, EX Askari Storm, with our paired Battalion 2 SCOTS and we look forward to joining them again later this year for deployments to Afghanistan.
