Visit one of the most historically significant sites in Scotland, for the Battle of Culloden Moor in 1746 is considered “the beginning of the end for the Highlands”
Culloden is one of the most historically significant sites in Scotland. This is where the Battle of Culloden Moor occurred during the Jacobite rising in 1746. In just a brief time, between 1,500 and 2,000 Jacobites were killed or wounded in combat.
The famous bloody battle, the last to have occurred on British soil, is considered to have been the end of the Highland way of life. From then, traditions such as the speaking of Gaelic and wear of the kilt were banned.
You can find out more about the events leading up to the Battle of Culloden Moor, and the massive changes it brought, at the award-winning visitor centre at Culloden, featuring interactive exhibitions that follow the battle’s characters through the historic events. The battlefield itself has also been restored to resemble the fateful day in April 1746.View Inverness
