Queen's Barracks was a military installation in Perth, Scotland.
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. The barracks served as the depot of the Black Watch until they closed in May 1961. The barracks were then demolished and the site became used for a police station.
In the 1960s the Regimental Headquarters and the Regimental Museum moved to Balhousie Castle where the Museum still remains. 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.
