The Culloden Battlefield was amazing. By the time we left we all were humbled by the hollowed ground and the men who fought. It was a great experience to be able to walk through the battlefield with the audio tour.

Growing up with the story of Culloden as a child, it was really interesting to finally visit the museum and battlefield. The museum is one of the best I have been to, with outstanding information, displays, audio clips, maps, demonstrations of weapons, films, etc. The battlefield tour is done using audio guides which help you put the whole episode into...

My husband and I were very pleased we dropped in here, even though it was December and extremely windy! We were on a small budget for our Scotland trip, so we did not pay for the commentary or to go into the small museum they had there, but the battlefield is free for entry. There was information plaques planted around... More

We visited Culloden Battlefield for a whole day, as we were staying in Inverness. So so much history. The Visitor's Centre is also brilliant -- it also acts as a museum. It tells the story about how the battle was formed between the Jacobites and the Government. A must visit for Outlander fans ;)

I visited with my partner in January. We were surprised that the new visitor center was closed even though it was a Sunday. This was a bit disappointing as we were looking forward to seeing the new interactive display. I have no idea what the entrance fee is but the moor is always accessible and free and was worth travelling... More

I am not a fan of war but I can appreciate the history that goes along with many of the world's past wars and battles. Culloden Battlefield was the site of one of those past battles and this museum gives visitors a number of ways to learn more about it and experience it in a number if interactive ways. I... More

This is a sacred place and should be respected, it has such an atmosphere. It was wonderful to visit and imagine the events that took place so many years ago. It is a place to remember and never forget the pain and anguish suffered by so many men. It was a shame the museum was closed.

We visited in late August and spent a wonderful afternoon walking across the battlefield which is particularly evocative.The museum itself was a pleasure,being both informative as well as engaging.Unlike many other attractions of this type,the gift shop contained really lovely local craftwork at very reasonable prices.If you do visit,set aside most of the day - you won't regret it.

Easy to get a sense of what the Battle of Culloden might have been like. Some useful information positioned in various places but not especially extensive. I think they are relying on you visiting the exhibition space to get additional information - all very well but the place is not always open (e.g. at Christmas/New Year when lots of people... More

As outlander fans we had to visit and have no regrets. Despite it being the last day before winter closure and the weather being hostile ( for Aussies) it was a fantastic experience. We learnt so much from both the Jacobite and English sides and the displays were really well done. Walking the battlefield after the experience of the visitors... More
