Being a Scot I have been taught/read about Culloden but actually being there was quite an experience. Walking round the different grave markers and reading the inscriptions brought it to life. The number of lives lost from the different clans was quite sobering. Even if...More

We visited the battlefield with our toddler(aged 2 so she went free). The museum was expertly put together, charting the story of the Jacobite rebellion from both the government and the Jacobite viewpoint. They offer tours of the battlefield, but we chose to go alone....More

No. The ticket you buy at the visitor center is for admission to that facility and the battlefield. We had a car so we drove. Ask your hotel. Have you tried Uber?
