The Scots Fusileers (or Fusiliers) were a regiment raised in 1678 during the Covenanting troubles in Scotland by the Earl of Mar. The regiment saw action throughout the 18thcentury, including at the Battle of Culloden, where they contributed to the defeat of the Highland forces of Bonny Prince Charlie Stuart.
