“Great presentation of the history”
Reviewed 29 August 2014

The battlefield is highly atmospheric and the GPRS handsets describing the day of the battle are incredible. The acted presentations and the new visitor centre are great. Definitely recommend it for all history buffs and those with children. National Trust members are free.

“Great look back in history”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

Great look back at the historic battle, nice walk with signs along the way, although quite expensive to get inside at £11 for adults! Dogs can be taken on the walk also. Shame to miss this whilst in the Highlands.

Thank ClaireGeen

“A highlight of our short holiday”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to culloden. It was interesting, informative and plain emotional to think back to a time when hand to hand combat was the norm. The battlefields are free to wander, however it's well worth the time and money to see the exhibition. One of the best £11.50 I've spent. Staff were exceptionally friendly, even taking our coats to dry for us when it was raining. And it sparked an interest in me to find out more about the history of Scotland. We spent 2 hours in the centre and I probably could have spent more. They have free speaking tours around the battlefield too.

Excellent very well done visitor centre and experience. Our two 7 year old children were kept engaged throughout. The cafe was good too.

“One of Scotland's top attractions”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

The history of the U.K. and indeed the world changed in one hour with the battle of Culloden in 1746 when the British Army led by the Duke of Cumberland defeated the Jacobean army of Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie).
The state of the art visitor centre takes an hour to go through. Don’t miss the 5 minute immersive film show where you stand in the middle of the action.
The free audio guides are GPS controlled and switch on as you tour the battle site.
Informative, educational and atmospheric, a ‘must see’ if visiting the area.
Free entrance to the battlefield site. Visitor centre entrance fee £11.00 for adults, free for U.K. National trust members.
Tone's Tip – Free car parking if you take your U.K. National Trust car sticker, otherwise £2.00.
