We went there on our way back from Inverness, as it was not too far from there. Although there was a brown tourist sign pointing out the turn-off from the A9, we still got lost, as it was not clear that for the battlefield site we needed to follow signs for Culloden Moor. Once we found it, there was plenty... More

I visited here on a bleak, sideways rainy day. Most appropriate for such a place with where so many people lost their lives... It had the best format I've ever seen in a battlefield museum site. As you start your walk inside the museum corridors you follow a time scale with one wall and the other side being either the... More

A great historic place to visit. It is a must see if you are interested in historical events around the Jacobites rebellion of 1746. It is also a great place for Outlander fans!

Don't miss this if you are in Inverness. The experience is unbelievable. They've spent a lot of money on this site and it shows. Very good history lesson presented in a most informative and sensitive way.

Well designed visitor center gives the social, military, political and personal history of this important battle site. Unlike many battlefields it truly shows the terror of war - especially the use of cannon against armed militias. The movie of the battle is graphic and is not suitable for many adults or most children.

I am interested in Scottish History and in particular the Jacobite Risings. Culloden Moor is a 'must visit'. It has an excellent Visitors' Centre which is very informative and the battlefield itself is a haunting experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone and look forward to visiting again in April 2015. Awesome place.

As a History nerd this historical battlefield is what brought me to Inverness. I was not disappointed at all. The museum took an impartial view of the two sides involved in the battle. There were plenty of artifacts to look at and to hold onto as well. A must is the film room which has you standing in a room... More

Throughly enjoyable visit and well worth the trip. Captures the essence of the battle using a mixture of visual and audible media, not to mention the extremely knowledgeable staff. We travelled from Glasgow on our club 55 tickets rail tickets and caught the B2 bus from Inverness which was a bit of a white knuckle ride with some F1 driving... More
