The Atholl Highlanders is a Scottish ceremonial infantry regiment. The regiment is not part of the British Army but is in the private employ of the Duke of Atholl, and based in Blair Atholl

The regiment was originally raised in Perthshire by John Murray, 4th Duke of Atholl as the 77th Regiment of Foot (or Atholl Highlanders, or Murray’s Highlanders) in December 1777.

More than 50 years later, in 1839, George Murray, 6th Duke of Atholl, as Lord Glenlyon, resurrected the regiment as a bodyguard which he took to the Eglinton Tournament at Eglinton Castle, Ayrshire. Three years later, in 1842, the regiment escorted Queen Victoria during her tour of Perthshire and, in 1844, when the Queen stayed as a guest of the Duke at Blair Castle, the regiment mounted the guard for the entire duration of her stay. In recognition of the service that the regiment provided during her two visits, the Queen announced that she would present the Atholl Highlanders with colours, thus giving the regiment official status.

Bruce Clan History: The Bruce surname, one of the most celebrated in Scottish history, is of territorial origin, from the Chateau d’Adam at Brix, in Normandy.

The first Bruce recorded in Britain was Robert de Brus, who arrived with William the Conqueror’s Norman invasion of England in 1066. He was thought to have died in 1094. A son of Robert, also called Robert, was the first of the family with a Scots connection. As a companion of Prince David, Robert came north to Scotland, in his train, and was granted Lordship of the lands of Annandale, after David became King of Scotland.
