Queen's Barracks was a military installation in Perth, Scotland.

History[]

The barracks were established in the north west of the city as a home for cavalry regiments in 1793 and were subsequently converted to take infantry regiments.[1] The barracks served as the depot of the Black Watch until they closed in May 1961.[2] The barracks were then demolished and the site became used for a police station.[3]

In the 1960s the Regimental Headquarters and the Regimental Museum moved to Balhousie Castle where the Museum still remains.[4] The Army Reserve Centre, located further up the Dunkeld Road where HQ Company 51st Highland Volunteers are now based, has since adopted the name of Queen's Barracks.[5]
