  • Visitor's Centre is fantastic. You could spend quite a long time if you want to read everything. The reenactment of battle and visuals are amazing too.The audio guide for the battlefield is a great addition to the experience and helps understand better how the battle went.
  • Very informative visitors centre giving both the government and Jacobite view points. Great audio / visual displays. Nice, wheelchair accessible walks across the battlefield. Lots of parking. Good cafe.
  • Very interesting and capturing story. We had a great guide. I love history! It was hard to grasp. Beautiful place, museum and shop. I would like to visit this place again!
  • A wonderful place. Went there in the summer, but the visitor centre was already closed which was perfect since we had the place for ourselves. The field can be accessed through a path on the right of the entrance to the car park.
  • An amazing place to visit. The staff are outstanding and brilliant in sharing their knowledge. A great interact history lesson which the whole family enjoyed. A highlight of any tour to the Highlands
