  • I walked it for free but I knew a lot about Culloden already but I would recommend a tour because it would be absolutely extraordinary listening from a Scottish persons point of view of the battle. Interesting little stories you don't know about will be told. It's also an enjoyable walk but it's just crazy to think so many Scots died on the spot you were walking.
  • Great historical place with a lot of atmosphere. Very educational. We had a beautiful day. The museum and gift shop are nice as well. Inside the shop you will find high quality items like scarves and jewelry, as well as books and some whiskey. The parking outside the main building is free too.
  • Visited the Culloden Battlefield during our trip to Inverness. Definitely worth a visit as the area is rich in history. Beautiful grounds and you can walk for hours if you so choose. The information center is well laid out and the videos were amazing. Seeing all the Clan memorial stones was very surreal. Site is well laid out showing the various positions of the Jacobites and government troops. Had a quick bite to eat before we left and the food was good.
  • The reason I gave you four star because of ticket price for students and it was only one pound different. The place is nice and good presentation about Battlefield. Staff are friendly and nice welcoming. Go early because after 10Am in the morning it's really busy inside.
  • The entry fee is reasonable around 11 pounds, it's free to national trust members. While we were there, on this occasion there were talks and tours of the artifacts and battleground. There is an excellent exhibition, a 360 film re enactment. The cafe is good with gluten free cake available.
