The richly researched, stimulating and sensitive Culloden Visitor Centre, which stands beside the battlefield, features artefacts from both sides of the battle and interactive displays that reveal the background to the conflict. It stands as a monument and a guide to a pivotal day in history
A visit to Culloden is a poignant experience. Headstones mark the graves of hundreds of clansmen who gave their lives for the Jacobite cause; a 6m-high memorial cairn honours the fallen; and an eerie silence often falls across wild Drummossie Moor – there is no escaping the emotions Culloden evokes.
The modern, family-friendly visitor centre provides a fascinating insight into the last hand-to-hand battle fought on British soil. Discover how a bloody fight that lasted only an hour changed life in the Highlands forever.
Participate in regular Living History presentations that bring the battle to life. Enjoy the restaurant with a range of dishes to suit all. Purchase Jacobite gifts and Culloden mementos from the extensive range available at the shop. Book the dedicated facilities for education meetings, research, presentations, seminars, product launches and functions.
