The Guardians are the supporters of the Museum of The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
Guarding the Past
Guardians believe that it is important to tell the story of The Argylls to ensure that we never forget this strand of the nation’s history and the people who lived it.
Guardians make a vital contribution to the Museum’s continuing popularity. Their engagement, enthusiasm and generosity has already enabled the Museum to keep the great story of The Argylls alive.
With their help the Museum has been able to conserve and expand the collection thus ensuring that the legacy of the Officers and Men of the Regiment will be available for future generations to explore, learn and enjoy.
Looking to the future
The Museum has ambitious plans to redevelop the interpretation of the collection for the 21st century. The Guardians’ scheme will contribute towards:
❖ Increased gallery space to tell the fascinating story of the Regiment;
❖ Improved conservation of the collection and archives;
❖ Improved access to our records for research on our website;
❖ An extended education programme;
❖ An increased ability to mount outreach projects across the regimental area;
❖ The creation of a virtual tour of the Museum to improve access to the collection.
The Guardians will help to place the Museum on a sustainable footing for the future.
