History of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders

Major Events in the Evolution of the Regiment


The Regiment has undergone many changes of name, structural organisation and complement in its 245 year history.

  • In war time it expanded to as many as 27 Battalions.
  • At one time it contracted in strength to a single Company
  • at another time it faced extinction


Through all of these organisational changes and political pressures, the Regiment has survived.

It is still proudly playing an effective role in the service of our country.
