  • One thing to know, the visitor center is not mandatory to access the culloden battle field but is interesting in knowing that the audio guide is included in the visit... Interesting and moving... especially for fans of the Outlander series!

  • 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
