This is a terrific place to visit. The visitor centre is very interesting and the battle experience in the small theatre very graphic but also very emotive. Out on the battlefield there is a strange quietness. The GPS guides were informative of the many different...More

With teenagers and grandparents in tow we only intended to "pop by" to see the battlefield. We didn't realise there was so much to keep you occupied from watching a member of the crowd learn how to dress like a Highlander to the clever informative...More

If you don't know anything about culloden you certainly will once you leave. Excellent museum and very informative. Once you get out into the battle field itself it's all marked out for you with the Jacobites & red Coats flags and path ways marking out...More

This key battle in Scotland's history and its political intrigues is well-documented in the new museum. However, the outdoor mobile guides use a GPS system that is inadequate and the outdoor spaces are not well-marked.

Very well presented museum/exhibit, the story of the battle is comprehensively but simply explained, the rain (the only time it did rain on our holiday) only added to the atmosphere

My only regret was not spending more time here. The visitor's centre exhibition is amazing, super informative and very modern. The Battlefield itself was hauntingly beautiful. I can't recommend this enough

The moor where the battle took place and where more than 1500 men are buried is wild and atmospheric. but the visitor centre was quite out of place. Whilst the staff were not at fault - they were everything they should have been - the...More

About how long do you think you spent there? We are trying to figure out how much time to allow for this on our way to Skye.

Easily 3 hours. It was cold and snowing outside so I could have spent longer but came in out of the cold to read some more inside
We are staying in Inverness and would like to see the Culloden Battlefield. I see tickets for the Visitor Center but how does one get there? Is there a bus? If you buy the Visitor Center admission ticket does that include transportation from Inverness?

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?
