52nd Lowland (6 SCOTS)

52nd Lowland, 6th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland (6 SCOTS) is one of two Army Reserve battalions within The Royal Regiment of Scotland, with Army Reserve centres across central and the Lowlands of Scotland.

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 who volunteer on operations with our paired Regular Battalion (2 SCOTS), including Op Toral (Afghanistan) in 2016. 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 Oman (Ex Jebel Storm), and Kenya (Ex Askari Storm) with 2 SCOTS, but we now look forward to Ex Roman Star in Italy for our annual deployment. In October we also entered a team to the notorious military competition ‘Cambrain Patrol’ where gained a silver award – We aim to build on this for 2017.

When we are not soldiering there are opportunities for Adventure Training  with our growing number of instructors. Last year we completed an epic 340 mile canoe trip from Canada to New York! This summer we will be conducting training in the highlands!
