Fort George,


The Blue Hackle Rooms at the Highlanders' Museum (Queen's Own Highlanders Collection) offer a unique location for functions, parties, lunches, meetings and corporate hospitality in the heart of the Highlands.

The Blue Hackle Rooms are situated on the second floor of the Museum and have stunning views across Fort George and the Moray Firth with the chance to see Dolphins, Orca, Minky Whales and seals. There are two rooms available for hire – the dining room and the board room.

The dining room which can be set out in any format required is shown in the photograph in the style of a formal dinner and provides an excellent setting to entertain clients or perhaps host a small dinner or lunch. The dining room comfortably seats 12 people.

Our board/meeting room seats a maximum of 24 people and is fully equipped with 40 inch LCD TV with HDMI connections, a projector and screen and free Wi-Fi. Both rooms can be combined and hired for functions.

Should you wish to have a larger function, the whole Museum can be booked and can accommodate up to 80 people for drinks receptions, lunches and events. The Museum is also able to offer marquee hire for larger parties.
