  • A very moving and informative museum and landscape. The museum has interactive learning facilities which teach you about the people involved around the war, and has a historical timeline from the perspective of the Jacobite and the Government. It is beautifully done, and is incredibly moving exhibit. The battlefield, Cairn, and Cottage are very well maintained, and is further supported by plates with more information. A very informative day out overall.
  • Whether you know the history of the battle and what led up to it, or not the visitor centre is a very informative place to visit. It is interesting and well set up. The surrounding battlefield is great to walk around. An enjoyable couple of hours spent there and highly recommended.
  • I found where some of the Fraser clan were buried very easily alongside men from mixed clans but I feel all these Scotsmen should be honoured for their bravery. The centre is very interesting too and I think every Scot should treat this site as a pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime. This was my third visit in my 64 years and I hope not my last.
  • A hauntingly beautiful place with a unique atmosphere... an amazing visitor centre and exhibition, among the best I have seen... The folk who fought here did so with passion, putting their lives on the line for what they believed, perhaps modern folk could learn much from the way the lived...
  • This was Majestic. Kind of spiritual. Just to stand on the same soil my relatives or my ancestors stood hundreds of years before. To me, this was a great honor. So glad to have experienced it.
