The Royal Regiment of Scotland is focused on our most valuable asset, The Jock, a proven fighting soldier who personifies our cherished core values.
We are a family Regiment and our team includes Regular soldiers, Reservists, Veterans and Cadets offering a lifetime of comradeship. The Regiment relies upon the support that it draws from the families of our serving personnel, the communities from where we are drawn, and Scotland as a nation.
Regimental Headquarters is situated within the military accommodation in Edinburgh Castle.
We have battalions based in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Belfast and Catterick.
I’m part of something real - this Regiment Jase, 23 - The Royal Regiment of Scotland
We are a large Scottish regiment bound by our unified purpose - to deliver a modern infantry fighting capability for the UK and its Defence requirements around the world.
Each of our Regular battalions have specialist operational roles whether fighting on foot or mounted on the Army's latest armoured vehicles. They work with our two Reserve battalions to ensure that the Regiment is balanced and adaptable, ready for all conflicts present and future.
The Regiment is a disciplined, resilient and professional team with an unrelenting focus on the pursuit of excellence. A team within which all people are valued and empowered to do their best. A team that has the humility to learn from each other and other people.
The Royal Regiment of Scotland was formed in 2006 through the amalgamation of Scotland's historic infantry regiments to form a single fighting force. We are fiercely proud of our heritage and our battalions carry forward links with those regiments that formed us.
Three Scottish Infantry Regiments were in existence, the earliest being raised in 1633.
During this period fourteen Scottish Infantry Regiments were in service for Great Britain.
By the start of the century, Army reforms had reduced the Scottish Infantry to nine Regiments.
Scottish Infantry Regiments were heavily involved in both conflicts with many battalions being raised by each Regiment.
The Royal Regiment of Scotland is formed from the existing six Scottish Infantry Regiments.
The Regiment has deployed worldwide in many areas of conflict and on peacekeeping duties.
