Arms and Armour

Almost the entire history of European arms and armour is represented in our collection, and we have perhaps the most important collection of Scottish weapons in public hands. We can provide images of swords from the ancient world, armour of medieval knights, early and modern firearms, and arms of the Scottish Highlander. We also hold the RL Scott collection of manuscripts. Here is just a selection of images. To view all images in this set, and to select images to add to your basket, click 'View all images' below.
