One Army - Regular and Reserve. 51st Highland, 7th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland (7 SCOTS) is the Army Reserve (formerly the Territorial Army (TA)) Infantry for the North of Scotland. Battalion Headquarters (BHQ) is in Perth and there are Company (Coy) and Platoon (Pl) locations in Dundee, Kirkcaldy, Stirling, Peterhead, Aberdeen, Keith, Inverness, Stornoway, Wick, Dumbarton and Dunoon.

Who are we and what do we do?

For most of us, the Army Reserve is a second job, but as Reservists we have a real job to carry out, and there are officers and soldiers serving on operations wherever the Regular Army needs our support. We are resourced and equipped to the same levels as the rest of the Army and are trained to the very highest standards.

In recent years a large number of our officers and soldiers have deployed to Iraq and or Afghanistan alongside our Regular SCOTS counterparts.
