The Scottish Horse is unique in that it was originally raised, not in Scotland, but in South Africa. In 1900, the Caledonian Society of Johannesburg offered to form a corps under the name of the "Scottish Horse" to be recruited from Scotsmen in South Africa. In 1901, a regiment of four squadrons was raised under the command of the Marquis of Tullibardine, afterwards the Duke of Atholl.

Dunkeld was the Headquarters Squadron of the Horse.
