The Regiment was created in 1689 as a crisis measure for the defence of Edinburgh against the Jacobites. The Regiment was recruited “by beat of drum” along the Royal Mile (the High Street in the Old Town) of the City of Edinburgh in the record time of two hours with men flocking to join the Earl of Leven to safeguard their city.
