Would recommend to anyone in the area. To see it properly you would need to spend at least half a day if not a full day plenty to see and the food is excellent also the tomato and basil was one of the best I've tasted and the custard creams melt in the mouth

Ay laddy,
We floo inta Glasgow, rentad a carr & drove on the wrung side o the road for a wake. cue "Yes" Roundabout reference. Anyway, you gotta see Stirling Castle, bridge of Allan, Mt. Nevis, Culloden (cue Dire Straits " Brothers in Arms"), Doune castle (Monty Python fans'll know it), Rosslyn Chapel (crack davinci code) Oban distillery (bring snorkel), Holly-rood castle. Drank, i mean "enjoyed" lots of "scotch" culture, & deep-fried haggis , washed-down with copious quantities of murky local beers (each town has its own).
yours truly,
Haggis MacCrumpett

When I was younger I read the Diana Gabaldon books and became interested in Scottish history. The battle of Culloden features in these books heavily. It was a real treat to head to the visitor centre and enjoy the interactive display and hear about the battle from both sides. You would not have had to known much about the battle upon arrival, as the displays tell you all about the history of the place.
The battlefield itself is a very moving place, there are graves to the different clans and the gps audio guide is really useful.
I would highly recommend a visit!
