Our visit to Culloden was very moving. There is an eerie, somber feeling when you step onto the battlefield, as if you can feel the souls lost there. We had a limited amount of time to visit; looking back, I would have spent less time...More

Holy wow, this is sobering. You definitely should carve several hours out of your day to visit the museum and battlefield. Outlander fan or no, this is worth the time. We took the bus out of Inverness, which made things so much easier. We actually...More

Culloden was a fantastic history lesson into the Jocabite Rebellion of the 18th century. We really enjoyed it and made the most of our understanding from the TV series Outlander.

A very, very well set out and thoughtful presentation of both sides of the Jacobite revolution. Well worth seeing. Very glad we went.

Entry to the battlefield itself is free. Peaceful walking around on a beautifully sunny day. The quietness allows you to envision the battle and the headstones are very moving. Would certainly recommend a visit if in Inverness

No visit to Inverness would be complete without visiting the famous Culloden Fields. The Visitors Centre is really worth visiting, especially if you don’t know the historical background and facts about the battle. A very somber and sobering walk through history as you wander along...More
