Culloden Battlefield and Visitor Centre
Historic Site and Museum in Inverness
The Culloden Battlefield is a powerfully emotive and atmospheric battlefield where the 1745 Jacobite Rising came to a tragic end. The Battle of Culloden was the final confrontation of the Jacobite rising of 1745. On 16 April 1746, the Jacobite army of Charles Edward Stuart was decisively defeated by a British government force under Prince William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, on Drummossie Moor near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. It was the last pitched battle fought on British soil.
The visitor centre has a 360-degree battle immersion theatre, which puts you right in the heart of the battle. Discover the story of the 1745 Rising, from both the Jacobite and Government perspectives, in our accredited museum, where weapons and unique artefacts are displayed.
