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, for the Battle of Culloden Moor in 1746 is considered “the beginning of the end for the Highlands”. This battle—the last to occur on British soil—marked the final confrontation of the Jacobite rising of 1745 and part of a religious civil war in Britain. In just a brief time, between 1,500 and 2,000 Jacobites were killed or wounded in combat.

Many believe this bloody battle, which brought on major social and economic changes to the Scottish Highlands—one of the main Jacobite strongholds, led to increased repression of the Highlanders and their traditional Gaelic ways of life.

You can find out more about the events leading up to the Battle of Culloden Moor – and the massive changes brought after it – 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.
