  • Culloden Moor Battlefield was more emotionally overwhelming than Gettysburg. As soon as I stepped out of the exhibition building onto the battlefield I was immediately filled with a massive amount of ...  read more »
  • I had a wonderful day out to this place. We were blessed with good weather and really made a day of it. We had breakfast, did the tour, purchased books and other things, had lunch and off home.

  • A very informative, heartbreaking, place to visit.

  • This was worth every penny. Great exhibit before getting an ear piece and walking the battlefield. It was chilling to get to walk through the fields while hearing the history and reenactments on the ear piece. A must see to learn about Scottish history. Also the cafe was wonderful and served amazing soup.
  • Plenty of parking and easy to get to by bus. Modern looking building and facilities. Large restaurant that makes a great soup. Serves alcohol. Outside area which is dog friendly. They had some free dog treats and water there. Same good walks there including a 9km route with great views.
  • An incredible exhibit and wonderful learning experience for us all. Even the kids had a great time with the experience. Learning about such a pivotal event in Scottish history is important to anyone interested in Scotland.
  • Done well. Audio tour if worth taking and has a decent museum/information walk inside and a great cafe. Much better and worth the cost in comparison to the Clan MacDonald Museum and Armadale.
