I got confused at the beginning in the visitors centre, but maybe that's because I'm not well versed with Scottish history. I only know bits and pieces (and I'll admit I'm a bit of a fan of Outlander). But they also have video of a Battlefield experience and CGI of how the battle possibly went. Part of your admissions ticket... More

The Culloden Battlefield was a very historical place. It was a gloomy kind of day when we went there. We learned about the battles and who were buried around here and of what really happened when the fighting began.

Since we stayed at the Culloden House, my girlfriend and I decided to stop in here and visit. We knew nothing of this battle, however, the visitor center/museum was very helpful. Very nice displays plus a free audio tour. Definitely worth seeing if you are in the area.

We thought this was a great place to visit. It's a very solemn place, especially when you walk by the clan stones.

Visited here on a wet and windy day and what an experience. The museum is well designed and thought out giving a balanced view of both sides of the conflict. Some stunning memorabilia from so long ago. There are some areas where young children would be upset but this is notified well in advance and the decision is yours should... More

We had visited the battlefield some years ago before the new visitors centre was built. The centre gives a good history of the area and the surround sound film is excellent. However given that the battlefield itself is accessible free of charge we felt the admission cost was rather high for what it contained. On a plus note the café... More

The highlight of our trip to Scotland. We are fans of the book series Outlander, and took a one day tour with Invernesstours to Culloden. This place is amazing, and you can feel the history of Scotland right in the fields. The welcome center is loaded with amazing information and just the visit clarified the battle that changed the history... More

The museum does a wonderful job of giving every detail about the events of Culloden. The audio guides were very helpful as we walked the moor. Take some time to stop and really let everything soak in. Very moving.

I normally enjoy visiting culloden battlefield but on this occasion I was very disappointed as there was 2 bus loads of school kids there and from what we seen and heard they where under no or very little control! The noise they made meant it was extremely hard to hear the interactive parts and often kids playing where people were... More

The visitor centre is fascinating; it took us 3 hours to get round! The excursion over the battlefield really brought it all to life. Outstanding.
