The Highlanders' Museum at Fort George has received a boost to its fundraising appeal with a grant of £130,000 from Historic Scotland.
The Highlanders' Museum at Fort George, which tells the story of the Highland warrior from the time of Culloden to the present day, has received a grant of £130,000 from Historic Scotland. The museum houses the regimental collections of the Seaforths, Camerons, Lovat Scouts, Queen's Own Highlanders and Highlanders and is currently looking to raise £2.9 million for the development of a new Highland Military Heritage Centre.
Major General Seymour Monro, Chairman of the Highlanders' Museum and Appeal, said: 'We are thrilled to receive this most substantial donation from Historic Scotland. Although we still have £150,000 to raise, this donation allows us to start the Project next week.
'We are working closely with Historic Scotland, our partners at Fort George. We want to ensure that everyone has a memorable experience when they visit what will become a really superb Highland military heritage centre.'
