Very much like the Gettysburg battlefield in the states, today it is primarily a field with markers explaining what happened. Very somber place if you respect the history. While the field itself is just an open area, the visitors center is well done. Be sure...More

Good walk around the fields with interesting information. Best on dry days but good visitors centre and lots of to see. Allow dogs round the walk as long as on a lead.

Visited Culloden for the first time and I loved it. It was a very emotional place as you can literally feel the history in the battlefield. There are flags to show the front lines of the Jacobean army and that of the English. More than...More

Went here with my partner and elderly mother. We enjoyed walking round and lots of interactive exhibits, including ideas of different characters from Scotland's past but the best bit was the 360 cinematic experience which we got the chance to reenact what life was like...More

No. The ticket you buy at the visitor center is for admission to that facility and the battlefield. We had a car so we drove. Ask your hotel. Have you tried Uber?
