Visited Colloden 30 years ago - it was a field with a couple of signs - now there is a ultra-modern building featuring fantastic interactive displays of events leading up to and occurring there.

Building has a very well resourced restaurant/cafe with excellent food choices.

A must see for anyone visiting Scotland.

The attraction has been brilliantly put together inasmuch as you first move through the exhibition centre (a very modern building but tastefully blended into its surroundings) and receive all the background information about the Jacobite rebellion and its culmination at Culloden. I got to try replicas of the sort of weapons used in the battle which was great fun.Walking out onto the actual battleground itself fully informed led one to try and imagine what it must have been like on the day. The iPod style headsets you walk round the battlefield with are excellent and allow you to drink in the atmosphere. Loved it.

Expecting a field with some signposts? Think again...this place has been transformed into an informative and thought provoking historical attraction. Excellent exhibits that stimulates and entertains both young and old. The only (minor) comment is that the GPS controlled audio guides that take you around the battlefield are sometimes a bit hit and miss, but nevertheless an excellent afternoon out.

If you are interested in Scotish History then this is a must. A wild,exposed field with views over the Moray Firth, All the areas of the Clan battle positions are clearly indicated, the battle is well explained in the brochure & the visitor centre is interesting

With the Visitors' Centre closed, snow on the ground, and a biting northeast wind, there were few people about. Just what I was oping for - a lonely moor with comprehensible battle interpretation and atmosphere aplenty. Go in January.
