This is quite an impressive site. One can walk the grounds on which this definitive, tragic, and transformative battle was fought: the defeat of Prince Charles led directly to the end of traditional Scots life. The grounds are accessible or free, and include marked walks whbich provide information about troop positions, what happened where, etc. The paid section offers a cogent and concise history of the context and the battle--narrated with careful neutrality form both sides--many fascinating artefacts; an immersive film experience which gives one something of a taste of the battle; a computer-graphics aerial precis of the whole thing, showing troop movements etc.; and many other interesting features. There is of course a gift shop and food availabl on site. a must-visit for anyone interested in Scottish history.
