On 15 October 2015 The Royal Regiment of Scotland received the Freedom of the Highlands from Highland Council at a ceremony in Inverness. The ceremony took the form of a Drumhead Service in the Northern Meeting Park.

The bands are the Pipes and Drums of The Highlanders 4th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland (4 SCOTS) and the Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland.

This video some of the highlights of the ceremony. Soldiers from the Regiment are shown marching through Inverness to the Northern Meeting Park for the ceremony. Also shown are the parade entering the park, the inspection, setting up the drum altar, the reading of the Freedom Award, and a fanfare.

The parade marches off to the Regiment's Quick March, Scotland the Brave.

Also on parade is the Regiment's mascot Lance Corporal Cruachan IV, a Shetland pony.

Parades were also held in Wick, Dingwall and Fort William the following day.
