A must for history buffs in the area. The centre stands on the site of the famous Jacobite battle of the 16th April 1746, a battle which lasted only twenty minutes and saw the destruction of the Jacobite forces by the English and is now...More

We visited on a wet and very windy day, so we could not walk far onto the battlefield, but inside the Visitor's Centre there is a spectacular museum full of history. Many of the items are interactive, with buttons to start video shows. There is...More

If you watch "Outlander" you know what Culloden means to the Scotch. April 1746 the British defeated the Jacobites in 1 hour and the Highland Culture was no more. If you plan on visiting Culloden, I suggest that you learn a bit about the Jacobites...More

I had thought before visiting this center that Culloden was the culmination of Scots vs English....not! It's better understood in view of rights of kingship and Catholic vs Protestant ideas. The aftermath of Culloden was the saddest part, where government-sanctioned genocide ruled, and the Highland...More

A very well-done museum and historical guide. It's not like Gettysburg or Fredericksburg, in the U.S., but it's very well done on a much more limited budget that those aforementioned American Civil War battlefields. If you are trying your best to sort out the history...More

As with so much of the history of the UK, there are many sides to the story at Culloden. The museum at the battlefield succeeds in telling both sides of the history book pages. You will come away with more understanding of the situation leading...More

It is definitely worth visiting this site given its historical significance but it is a shame the story is not told more clearly. Dividing the display between Government and Jacobite sides doesn't quite work. There could be more on setting the context of the rebellion....More

We spent at least double the time we expected to at this site. The battlefield itself is marked out and very moving. The grass is long in parts to let the lapwings nest. The plants are growing strong. All a poignant reminder of life in...More

Our tour guide provided excellent insight into this battle as she led us around the battlefield. The protruding stones on the exterior wall of the visitor centre that illustrate the number of those killed is a poignant and innovative way to demonstrate the cost in...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?

There did seem to be some coaches, but we travelled by car, so I am not sure.
